How Do I Sell Access To A Post On My WordPress Site?

Pay per Post

For entrepreneurs, like yourself, you may be contemplating what to focus on next with your online business. You may be wondering how you can sell access to a post?

If you’re already using WordPress you probably have a lot of pages and posts already created.

Here’s an idea… Sell a Few!

There are benefits, not only of writing posts and pages on your WordPress website, but also of selling access to those posts and pages individually.

So, how do you sell access to a post on your WordPress website? You can sell access to a page or a post using a membership plugin like WishList Member. 

Get a Membership Plugin that Supports Selling Individual Posts

WishList Member gives you the ability to not only create and sell memberships, but to also sell access to your pages and your posts individually.

You can sell access to all of your posts or just those certain ones. We call this feature “Pay Per Post”.

A Pay Per Post isn’t just to pay a blogger per post nor is it just for writers or freelancers anymore!

You can create your OWN PayPerPost on your site and sell it. 

You can reap the benefits from all of your hard work per page and per post without having to pay for an extra plugin or other software.

Use WishList Member to Sell Access to Individual WordPress Posts and Pages

Not quite sure of how to add a payment for your page or post?

WishList Member actually integrates with all of the favorite payment processors which makes it really easy to add a payment to a post or page. You can even sell access to a custom post type.

Connect a Payment Provider in WishList Member

You’ll need to integrate or connect with one of the payment providers we work with. 

Every page or post that is set as a Pay Per Post will have a SKU, which is its very own product number.

Setup Your SKU in WishList Member

The SKU is used to integrate it to the payment. The payment will need to be set up before you can connect the two.

This is completed within the page or post itself down in the WishList Member protection settings as shown in the image below.


You can learn about the complete setup in the Pay Per Post Training.

Protect Your Post with WishList Member

There are several different ways you can protect your paid for content. 

You may also want to think about teasing your audience…

What I mean by that is writing out your page or post and adding the More Tag. That way your readers will be able to view only a portion of your content. 

The rest will be hidden… Until they purchase the access. 

We’ll go over teasing content in another post.

"We’ve tried a couple of other membership tools that were part of packages that we’d invested in. But nothing can compare to WishList Member. I know that there’s a lot of cool stuff out there that people have been building over the years. But when it comes to customization, if you use WordPress, you can’t touch this. Obviously, I’m super biased, but we’ve made millions of dollars because of this product."

WishList Member integrates with the tools I use TODAY. And they’re so eager to integrate with tools that are coming out. It’s amazing how they do it actually. If I was going to be buying a membership plugin, today… for me, I would go with WishList Member.
