    Default Membership Payment Site Help 5 Mar 2012 @ 15.41

    Hi!


    I have thoughts about starting up an internet business. I would like to create a membership site around my interest. The problem is that i'm not so good at the technical parts and wondering how much time it requires to learn the programming languages to setup a website where I can accept monthly payments for members. The content is not a problem, but I don't really know where to start. I would like to create something similar to brainvale.com, sixpackshortcuts.com or universityofmakeup.com. But I would not want one time payment, a monthly subscription.


    Could anyone give some advice how I can start? or does it cost much to hire a professional programmer to setup a site similar to these membership sites above?


    Regards, May Reich

    Hi May,

    It depends on how much time you have. Building a payment mechanism can be quite complicated depending on how much integration you want to have.

    I had a quick look at the makeup site you mentioned, and this uses the standard paypal format to sell their goods. You can also use this to set up subscriptions: https://www.paypal-business.co.uk/ac...ypal/index.htm

    As you are just starting out, this is probably the best option for you and paypal has full instructions on how to implement these buttons onto your website.

    If you wanted to use something a bit more "fancy" (technical term!) and have the user stay on your own site, then you can use one of the following systems:
