The prices and payment manager addon allows you to easily monetize your directory.

This payment manager is extremely powerful and perfectly integrates with all other GeoDirectory addons. You can add different price packages per post type if you have our “Custom Post Types” plugin installed.

You can also change the fields that are shown per price package so for example a free package might only contain a title and description with 1 or no images allowed, where as a premium package might include contact details, special offers, menu download field etc.

You can even offer a “Featured” package which would give a listing a featured banner and give it higher priority in category listings etc.

There are many payment options as standard and the paypal option also allows you to offer a free trial and recurring payment options.

Available Payment Gateways are:

  • Paypal
  • 2CO
  • Authorize.net
  • Google Wallet
  • Worldpay

    • Hi,
      yes the prices and payments addon is built to be extendable just like the core plugin. We will start building extra payment gateway very soon.
      Thanks,
      Paolo

  1. “You can even offer a “Featured” package…”

    Are or can package enhancements (e.g., front page placement, featured, top of category, etc.) be treated separately from listing options?

    So let’s say listings run 180 days, but promotional features like the package enhancements above might run for 30 days. A business want to retain their general listing year-round, but only pay for these enhancements during certain months of the year, such as a restaurant targeting months with key holidays like Easter, Mother’s Day, New Year’s Eve, etc.

    • If by coupon you mean to sell discounted listings to business owners. Yes, you can even provide a free trial.
      If you mean coupons created by business owners to provide special offers via their listings, no that’s currently not possible, but it soon will when Jeff converts is GT Vouchers to work with GD too.

      Thanks

  2. can i create different payments for diff listing types, for example business free / business paid and school free and school paid

    free listing types have less features of course :)

    • Yes a Stripe extension for the prices and paymnents addon is 70% done.
      I hope we will be able to release it this week.
      Thanks,

    • Hi Greg,
      developer is almost done with it. We hope to release it in the next few days.
      Thanks

  3. Above you wrote about the GT voucher extension. I have had a look at it, however this doesn’t really meet my needs. What I am looking for is similar to e.g. retailmenot.com – online coupons codes, not actual physical vouchers. I know there are other themes supporting this, however I do not really like those solutions from what I have seen so far and really love your approach. Any thoughts on this being realized?

    • Hi,

      we are definitely interested in working on a “Deals” addon, however at present, I can’t really tell when we will be able to start working on it.

      Thanks

  4. Hey!
    Thanks for a great looking plugin. We are considering setting it up and buying the extensions.
    If you set a listing as featured will it then also show up on top in relevant searches, not just in categories?
    Also is it possible to set that people should pay by invoice, ut that we will send the invoices out to them (after they submit their listing frontend) and that the listings should be pre-moderated, so that we can activate them after we receive the payment from the client?

    • Hi,

      it will show on top of searches only if it is the top releavant result for that particular search. Otherwise the search results would be wrong and misleading.
      Yes, that is feasible.
      Thanks

  5. But let’s say you have a business directory where 10 companies in the same city have selected Printers as one of their keywords. If people search for Printers in that city then I would like the listings that have paid the most to be on top, if they are all relevant.

  6. One more things. When you say that it’s feasible, does that mean the functionality and we can just simple set it in the settings, or does it require some development from our side?

    • There is an option to set new listing as draft for to moderate them. No need for custom development.
      Thanks!

  7. Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a fair price? Kudos, I appreciate it! eaedgkefakbe

    • We use a dedicated server from http://hetzner.de/en with nginx and fastcgi installed. The home page is particularly optimized for fast loading, doing only 21 database queries…
      Thanks,
      Paolo

  8. Very important to me would be a “Deals” add on. It would be nice if it could be integrated with a member payment level so a certian level would allow posting of deals x amount of times.

    Also, allow users to follow say a business and receive notifications of new deals posted by those they follow.

    • At the moment we don’t have a “Deal” addon. It would require an ecommerce integration. We are planning to developing something similar in the future, but we can’t promise anything right now…
      Thx

  9. Perhaps the Events could be made into a deals type of thing? Then deals could be offered for a range of time. (Next Monday starting at 10:00am and ending at 1:00pm.) Seems like the deals and events are a good match? Just a thought.

    • Hi, Events won’t let you sell anything… Deals are supposed to be part of an ecommerce solution.
      Thanks

  10. Hello,
    Actually you are not understanding. “Deals” DO NOT need to be part of any “ecommerce integration”. I am talking about the ability for a company to list deals to their followers. There would be NO purchasing anything from the customer through any type of e-commerce solution on the website. They are wanting customers to come to their business NOT purchase anything through the internet.

    These “Deals” would announce to those following their listings that they are offering a deal (at their establishment). Example: “Announcing 10% off everything on Tuesday from 1:00PM to 5:00PM.”

    Those who are followers of the business would receive this “Deal” announcement. Also there could be a section that lists “Deals” announced from businesses. (For those who pay to have their deal featured).

    Hope you have a better understanding of “Deals” not being e-commerce related.

    Thanks.

    • Hi again,

      in that case event would do just fine… The only thing now, would be finding a system to “follow” an establishment.

      At the moment, users can only store places in their favorites and that doesn’t trigger any notification of events added…

      Thx

  11. Having a mechanism to trigger sending of notifications to followers would be a huge help not only in what we are talking about with deals, but also in other discussions features. Perhaps you could pass that along to the team there. :)

    thanks.

  12. I want to setup basic business information as the webmaster and then allow business owners the ability to edit that information and add photos etc after they have paid for a package.

    When a business owner buys a package can they edit an existing listing or do they have to create an entirely new one?

    • Hi, business owners can claim any listing and once approved they can edit them or upgrade them and add more pictures and extra info.

      Thx

  13. I currently use Quickbooks (Intuit) merchant services and I process CC payments through them, Does your payment solutions support this?

    • Hi,

      not at the moment, but the system has been built to be extended. We are currently working on the Stripe payement gateway and with that we will also release documentation on how to add new payment gateways.

      Thanks

  14. Hey, I’ve already got the X Theme, got a domain name, and all that. What I’m wondering is:
    “Where do folks get all the content from?” Do y’all scrape the data? Do you rely on business owners to upload it? Going on the notion that Content Is King, I’d much rather see all the businesses already “IN” the db, and then attempt to monetize. In other words, “Oh, looky looky ~ I’ve already uploaded your business in here. Now pay me for something cool like ‘coupons’, ‘featured’, ‘claimed’, ‘updating the contact info t deliver leads to your business’, or something similar.
    Speaking of monetizing the platform, where’s a module for ads? Is that something I’d need to go hash out w/ another plugin? Or can that be handled within the plugin/platform as well?

    I’m ready to throw some money at …something! :-) The (actual) domain is ready, SSL is ready (for when you get Stripe going), X Theme is bought, so…

    Let’s make a directory site! Shoot me back some answers to the details or post it here. Thanks! -Brad

  15. Does this plugin:
    1. handle automatic renewal where a customer sets up recurring payment order?
    2. unpublish a paid entry where a paid-for period expires?
    3. send a reminder to customers whose paid-for period is about expire?
    4. can we allow corporate customers to have multiple email addresses or accounts associated with a single listing?
    Thanks!

  16. In response to the last comment, the company can buy an html tab where they put all contact information. I believe this is already possible.

    • Yes, but I think he was asking if multiple users (emails) can manage 1 listing and in that case the answer is not. Only 1 user can be admin of a listing.

      Thx
