    I'd like to suggest a "pay per view" option. I want to sell images and charge the customer when any are displayed.

    This could be achieved by aMember making a note of the amount paid (ie. loading the account), and then making a charge whenever a link in a particular directory is accessed (by routing all accesses through mod_rewrite), with the option of filtering the items that are charged. eg. charging for all image of the format: buy*.jpg, which would then ignore .gif logos and .htm pages.

    Another option would keep track on how long a customer can redisplay an item without being charged again.

    Regards,

    I think this would be a great addon

    I'm trying to setup a membership where people pay a deposit of $200 and spend down that deposit as they download documents (each download is $25)

    Is this possible? Can you make it or customize it?

    Unfortunately, there is no ready solution for this.

    Pay Per View functionality

    I would like to set up something very similar, where a customer pays an initial deposit for "credits" and each time they view a document one "credit" is deducted. Has anyone found a way to make this work?
