Can I Charge My Community Members for Membership?

Yes, you can set up paid membership communities using our Zapier integration. This is how that works:

  1. Set your community platform to invite only.
  2. Use a 3rd party form provider to create a payment form. See this link for a list of options.
  3. Add a link to the form on the login page by modifying the default login text or by embedding the form using a custom element on the login page.
  4. Connect your platform to Zapier to send an invite on successful payment.

The above requires some experience with CMNTY Platform and Zapier. Let us know if you need help with your configuration.

See this example implementation using Jotform, Zapier & Stripe.

Please note that this setup was designed to charge a one-time fee for access to your community platform. While monthly subscriptions are supported using this setup, failed payments and cancellations will need your manual intervention. I.e. you will need to deactivate accounts manually.

CMNTY is working on a native Stripe integration that fully automates subscriptions, upgrades, downgrades, and cancellations. This integration will be available early 2018.
