Subscription based website - online courses


#1

Hello everyone.
I know this issue has been discussed before, but i’m not sure what’s the most updated answer.

I need to implement a subscription-based website. The website will contain online courses for subscribers, so a user login system is needed as well.
I would like to enable the user to renew and cancel his subscription and the on-line course should be restricted for the user’s exclusive watching.

In your opinion, what’s the best way to implement this?

Thank you,
Naama.

Hey @Naama

There is really only two ways to achieve this, (1) hire a developer to build out the functionality (2) use an platform designed to manage subscriptions etc. I believe you could pretty easily attach this functionality, and it would vary in complexity depending on the platform you use.

Here’s some from a quick google search:

https://ott.vimeo.com/ - Seems really good if it’s video content
https://memberful.com/
http://www.subbly.co/

Hopefully one of these suit your needs!

If you hire a dev:

Write your specs/requirements
Create your product
Buy & setup a custom domain
Design, build & host a website
Find & setup a video hosting platform
Find & setup a content hosting platform
Find & setup a billing plugin/ecommerce
Find & setup email marketing software
Start selling

If you go with a platform that’s pre built, (better for sites hosted by a solo-preneur with no dev background and a small budget) :

Here’s a platform that I really want to try out :slight_smile:

PM me for more help :slight_smile:

Hi @Naama.
I just replied to your email, but I wanted to post here as well to update the Webflow community.

Our team is currently working on a couple of options for memberships in Webflow. There’s no eta, but this is something that is super important to us and is actively being worked on.

We’ll be posting any updates here in the Webflow forum. Also, you can subscribe to receive Foxy + Webflow updates here.
