How can I allow users to pay for a listing I create?

Sometimes, you want to create a base listing for a customer and then send them the link to edit and/or pay for the listing.

Business Directory Plugin can be set up to work this way.

Step 1. Create the listing on the back end of the system under Directory → Directory Content → Add New Listing. You can choose to have the listing either published or in draft mode, whichever you prefer.

Step 2. Be sure that you DO NOT select a plan for the listing.

Step 3. Assign the listings to the specified user in WordPress. This is done via the author field near the bottom of the listing on the backend.

Step 4. When the new user logs in to your site, they can use the “renew” button to pay for the ad. You can create a page for users to manage their accounts by using the
[businessdirectory-manage-listings] shortcode.

This is a viable workaround if creating ads for your users makes sense. If you need further assistance, please reach out to us here.
