About This Class
You have several possibilities to monetize your WordPress site. One of them is to create a membership site, where people pay for a monthly membership to access the information on your site.
With the Plugin "Paid Memberships Pro" it is very easy and fast to set this up.
This class will also show how you can combine the membership site with your PayPal account so that you can handle the payments via PayPal.
You need to have a PayPal Business account because this class is using Paypal Express for the payment settings.
The Plugin itself is free of charge, so you can set up your membership site completely free if you already have a PayPal account.
You should have set up WordPress already. If you don't have a WordPress site, please check my free class, where you can learn how to set up your first WordPress site for free: http://skl.sh/2bGcgRf
I started computer programming back in 1988 when I created my first software with BASIC, Turbo Pascal and later in C++.
My primary domain in development was always database development, and I was a freelancer who created custom software for individual clients.
When the Internet came up with the World Wide Web and cheap web hosting for everybody, I switched over to Web-Development, which I started by learning PHP. I did some custom web software for my clients, using PHP as scripting language and MySQL as database software.
In 2010 I started using WordPress as blogging and content management platform and specialized in creating and modifying themes and plugins for this software.
Currently, I'm working as a freelancer, using job platforms like UpWork and codeable to find new projects with international clients.
I also write eBooks about WordPress and produce instructional videos that I offer on youTube, SkillShare and Udemy.
