PremiumAccount order form

Subscriptions for your email service

The PremiumAccount plugin is an extension for b1gMail which allows you to offer subscription plans for your email service. You can offer account feature upgrades for a one-time or a recurring fee. Payment interval and price can be flexibly configured.

The addon contains automated payment interfaces to PayPal, Skrill (former Moneybookers) and sofortüberweisung.de and allows manual payments via wire transfer or custom payment methods. The plugin can automatically generate invoices based on a customizable template.

The user area displays the subscription plans created by you in a clearly arranged manner and offers your users the ability to manage their orders.

The PremiumAccount plugin is based on the b1gMail plugin interface and can be installed in no time with just a few clicks.

Subscription plan administration

Subscription plan configuration

The PremiumAccount plugin is based on b1gMail's user group system. Using the plugin, you can create subscription plans. For the time of the subscription, the particular user will be moved to a definable user group which offers better features or more storage space.

Depending on the current subscription plan, a different screen design (template) can be presented to the user. Advertisements can be disabled for active customers.

When creating subscription plans, you can flexibly configure them: You can specify both the price and the payment interval. You can also pre-define possible subscription durations. To define the feature benefits of the plan, you simply use b1gMail's extensive user group system.

The plugin can automatically send expiration announcements to users with expiring subscriptions. In case a user does not extend his subscription, the plugin executes a configurable fall-back action — e.g. disable the user account or move it to a different user group.
