im currently working on a "listing" style website.
users will be able to sign up and list their holiday homes/properties similar to what you see here: http://www.ownersdirect.co.uk/brazil-north-east-2bed.htm
ideally, i plan to have users create a profile on my site, then subscribe with paypal to "publish" their listing.
so far I have installed the "memberprofiles" module which i THIK will work fine. I will just add lots more fields to the members page, and a has_many for all of the property images.
paypals subscription/recurring payments seems easy enough, i just need to tweak it all a little to get it working.
basically i wondered if anybody has any experience at all with this? will the memberprofiles module be suffice? what about if my users have more than 1 property? will they have to create a profile for each one? (thats not ideal!)
also, i was thinking of just listing the "profiles" in a loop on the front end to browse the property listings, and have the IPN write to the database with either a 0 or 1 for paid or unpaid, with an IF statement in the loop which queries the database, to ensure only paid listings are displayed.
i have NO experience at all with subscriptions, or the best way to deal with listings like this, is any of the above feasible or am i way off the mark here for how this should be done....
thanks in advance for any help you can share!
