Pay2Post: Charge for User-Generated Content

May 20, 2014 | Tyler Carter | News

Today we are proud to announce the launch of Pay2Post! Pay2Post is a free plugin that allows you to turn any website, using any theme, into a user-generated content site by charging users to submit posts, pages, or anything else you can imagine.

Pay2Post Add Post

It’s easy to setup and works like this:

  • install Pay2Post as a plugin
  • insert the Pay2Post shortcode into a page

Viewing the page will reveal a form that will allow your users to enter content and pay for it using the price you specify.

Payment Settings

Pay2Post uses AppThemes Payments for all payment processing and thus works with all the payment gateways already available in our Marketplace. How awesome is that?

Head over to the WordPress Plugin Repository and download it now!

    Thank you for sharing this. Would you mind to provide some good examples on how we can use it on Clipper, Classipress, Vantage and other themes by Appthemes?

      This plugin isn’t aimed at our themes already using Payments. It is mainly for us with other themes that you want to add pay to post functionality to. So, you might use TwentyFourteen and create a site where people can contribute articles to the site for payment. Or, you could create a plugin that makes a custom post type called ‘Recipes’ and charge people a dollar to contribute a recipe, or other ideas along those lines.

        Tyler could you tell me if this plugin works with custom content types/fields?

          Right now the plugin is set up to work with custom post types. To add custom fields as well as use custom post types, check out these tutorials.

    Will this work with the Appthemes’ coupon plugin?

      I don’t believe right now we have the correct hook to add in the coupon text field. However, if you create a new template it should be fairly easy to add. We’ll also add it to our list to make sure it is supported in the next update.

    Thank you, Tyler. Is there a way you can make it work with all Appthemes especially clipper and vantage?

      At this moment no. The plugin uses some of the same code available in those themes which causes a problem if activated with one of our themes. We might look at this in the future.

        This plugin would be great if used with appthemes. For example, Jobroller with an option to charge recruitment agencies to post press releases, sponsored articles etc.

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Warning: require(/home/xxxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/pay2post/lib/framework/load.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/pay2post/pay-to-post.php on line 29

    Hi Tyler,

    Will this work with Explorable and other similar directory and location-based themes?

      While we haven’t specifically tested it on that theme, because it follows the WordPress Coding Standards and can potentially work for any custom post type, it should work for any theme. You might have to make extend the plugin if you want to collect data besides title, content, tags and categories.

      You can find information on how the API for the plugin can be found in our documentation. You would want to create a separate plugin that uses Pay2Post’s API to add additional fields for the user.

    I get a fatal error while trying to activate the plugin.
    …/lib/framework/load.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php-5.3.13/lib/php’)
    …pay2post/pay-to-post.php on line 29
    Anyone know what this is?

      Please download the new update to the plugin. Our system wasn’t adding some files which caused the release to not function properly.

        Just went and downloaded this plugin to do some testing. I received the following message upon activation: AppThemes Pay2Post can not run with this theme.

        WP Version: 3.9,1
        Theme: Classipress 3.3.3 / FlatPress

        Is there a step I am missing or is the functionality of this plugin not useable with AppThemes theme products?

          At the moment it is not meant to work with AppThemes Themes, but instead with other themes because the functionality it provides is mostly already built into our existing themes.

          We’re working on making it available to AppThemes Products so you can charge for blog posts, etc.
