IPN Paypal Subscriptions
#1
Well this is my next BIG release. It's a Paypal IPN subscription plugin. This will allow for you to have an automatted process for paid subscribers to your forums.

The license is a COMMERCIAL license. You cannot redistribute the plugin. You can read the license in the extras folder and by downloading the plugin you agree to abide by that license.


Plugin Name: MYIPN Subscriptions
Plugin Author: Jesse Labrocca
Plugin Website: http://www.MybbCentral.com
Plugin Version: 1.1
Plugin Mybb Compatibility: 1.2x
Plugin File Edits: None
Plugin File Uploads: 6
Plugin Description: This adds paypal ipn subscription service for your members. They can be placed in a usergroup of your choosing in admincp.

Installation

1. Upload the 6 files from the zip

root/myipn.php
root/subscribe.php
root/inc/plugins/myipn.php
root/inc/languages/english/myipn.lang.php
root/inc/languages/english/admin/myipn.lang.php
root/admin/myipn.php

2. Login to your admincp and ACTIVATE the plugin (MYIPN) in the plugin manager.

3. You will see the new menu item called "MYBIPN" inside admincp settings.

4. Change the settings to suit your needs. You MUST have a premier or business paypal account for the email. The paypal email must also be the primary email address. Make sure to also set the uid for the PMs. If you have not already done so please setup a special group for your subscribers if you wish them to have special privileges.

You must enable IPN at Paypal as well. You can do so here:
https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr...ipn-notify
You do not need a notify url. You can leave it blank but you must enable IPN.


5. Edit the language file to have the extra privileges for the subscriber group. It's an obvious edit inside root/inc/languages/english/myipn.lang.php (or the appropriate language if not english)

6. Edit your template whereever you want to link to the subscribe page. I recommend header and placing a toplink image. However as beta it's not provided for you and at this time you must manually add the link. Next version I will do automatic template edit for this.


This has FULL language support. If you wish to use non-english simply copy the mybbipn.lang.php to your language folder and change accordingly. Same goes for the admin section.

DEMO: http://www.mybbcentral.com/subscribe.php

SCREENSHOTS: There are 2 available in the extras folder.

NOTE: Paypal will recharge a member when the subscription service ends automatically unless the subscriber at some point beforehand cancels the subscription. They can do so at Paypal. Paypal offers you no way to do this from IPN. YOU can however manually cancel a members subscription inside the paypal interface. Please make sure your members are aware of this. Possibly add it to your subscribe page. The admincp has an IPN Subscription link now under Users and Groups. These are the log files for all the IPN's sent from Paypal.
MYPS: There is an option in IPN settings to give MYPS for a subscription signup. Set this to 0 if you do not have MYPS installed.

I guess that's it. Enjoy.

Great! Can't wait to try it out! Big Grin

Let me know if you have questions about it. It's easy to customize the subscribe page too by altering the language file for it. As you can see from the mybb central example...easy to alter to your liking.

Some things you can differentiate regular members from subscribers:

Larger PM Quota
Username Change
Custom Titles
Removal of Ads
Full Access to ALL forums
Can Give Reputations
Can Track PMs
Special Group Image
Arcade Access

Thank you sooo much!! I was actually looking for something like this!!! Smile
#5
I have a question, with this can I create multiple subscriptions?
#6
Not on this version but it's something I realized might be required by admins. This is version one Beta. It's working very well though. I am also going to add trial subcriptions too. I will try to add as many features to this plugin as I can.
#7
Okay, thanks! Smile Ive signed up for the subscribers so i can get most of the plugins that are going to come out. Smile i know its going to be worth it. Smile I cant wait for the release where i can add multiple subscriptions. Smile

Thanks for the awesome plugin!

Glad to hear it, Labrocca, cause I would need multiple subscriptions as well...but I'll have fun playing around with the beta version. Big Grin

Would this Paypal subscription mod work with viewing forums? I might buy this. Are updates free?

Yeah Multiple Subscriptions can certainly happen. I just have to rework the settings. Possibly just create a new table for them. They don't need to be called constantly anyways. Use a dropdown list for the selection and bingo...multiple subcriptions. It's gonna take testing though. The IPN testing with the Paypal sandbox is a grueling process. Back and forth..back and forth...

Quote:Would this Paypal subscription mod work with viewing forums? I might buy this. Are updates free?

You would just create a group for subscribers with the access permissions you require. So yes.

And you aren't paying for the plugin itself. You are paying for MyBB Central Subcription which is $4.99 per year...within that year you can download plugins and themes all you want. If you stop the subscription and next year I have an update you will not be able to obtain it. $5 a year is a measly sum for all the plugins I have and will have.

Also I am negotiating with Lex to be admin here and exclusively have his Plugins here.
