Helping out:
Will need testers and feature ideas, feel free to share your ideas... not all ideas will make it into the modification but will be reviewed.

+PLUS+ I'll need a few other tester's to help me test with their credit cards when I feel everything is safe enough to, don't worry, I'll get me an SSL certificate to keep them safe. For people who help me out with this easy task I will compensate some money (pay YOU extra money) PLUS whatever you paid using your credit/debit card.

Pre-Requisite Requirements:
1. SSL Certificate (Suggestively REQUIRED)... Be Smart, Don't Leak Your Member's Payment Info, etc.

Future Additions:
1. MaxMind Fraud Payment Integration - I may need some help with this one but it'll be integrated as well into the ACP... its not a free service, they charge I believe .20 cents per transaction (you buy transactions in bulk.) The service is good though, they determine using logical ways of figuring out if a credit/debit card is falsely used or is fine.

2. Verified by Visa, MasterCard SecureCode - Another thing I'll need help with... don't expect this anytime soon though, I am seeing maybe a couple versions down the line before this even gets started. This'll allow a more secure verification if they decide to pay via Authorize.Net, not sure about PayPal yet. Service costs but no more then a $1 I believe, or maybe a flat monthly fee.

3. Addt'nal Payment Gateways - Utilizing the core of the system, I am hoping I can help out by later on maybe utilizing other payment gateways. I don't want this to turn into a full blown out eCommerce type thing... just a few other popular payment gateways. On mind is AlertPay right now and maybe in Version 2.0.0 or 3.0.0 I'll try and get PayPal Direct Payment (or the IPN) and even Google Checkout added.

4. Give 'Em Credits - A little feature I call Give 'Em Credits. Simple like the PayPal Subscription Mod by sandodo --- when a user subscribes or makes a donation (from his mods point of view) --- the member gets credits. This'll do the same thing.

5. Comprehensive ACP Controls - Figure it like this, it'll be easy to control, but will have many angles in which to control with, sort of like an airplane but with less complications. This little signature addon will definitely get you some revenue from all types of angles.

NOTES:

1. Until -SV- finished his finished Advertisement Banner product, that feature will not be implemented

2. This'll take a bit of time as I have a full-time job and a personal life to attend to, but I promise I will work my hardest to fulfill this job. My goal is to have it done and a Alpha/BETA out by late October, mid November.


Roadmap (Will be altered often):

July 25, 2006
  • Work begins on Subscription Pro mod
  • Database table structure begins... final structure should be complete within' 1-2 days

Seen 2 people interested, anybody else? If not then I'll just cancel this mod altogether (atleast for now.)

Well, it's hard to tell without a demo ;)

I am sure this mod would interest a lot of people, but they need to find out such solution exist and thus a working demo.

Well, this is a reserved spot for this addon. I'm trying to generate and see who all would be interested in this, plus I've added an additional feature to the list:

Enabled/Disable System - Enabled if you want to use the system, disable to not use it.

Alright, so I've decided to take an early jump onto this modification, I started it and am underway with working on it. Remember it'll take some time as I'm a very busy person.

Something else, since I am too busy (and at the moment too lazy/tired from working overnight) --- I am utilizing a Authorize.Net class written by somebody, its released under the GPL and its not a base program (it more like a simple Authorize.Net PHP Class to help build up off of... so that eliminates that.)

In the first post is the roadmap and it'll be updated along the way. Keep watching this topic if interested.

I have been searching for a mod like this, and in my searching, I can tell you a lot of people are looking for it, and no one has created it yet. There's a similar one, but it's only for users to pay AFTER they've joined... sounds like yours is what I want - pay to join, not join first, then have to pay/upgrade.

I sure am interested.

I can help you with testing once you upload it to your site. Of course if you don't mind.
