CM Expert Directory Payments (CMED Add-On) - Suggesting an Expert

Adding a New Expert - Expert Community Part

To explain in detail how the payment for suggesting an expert works, we'll describe the full path.

To add a expert, users can go to the  Suggest an Expert page. This URL is available in the top of the Admin Dashboard -> CM Expert Directory -> Settings page.

Users can then input information about the expert, just like in the  CM Expert Directory plugin. 

The email entered when suggesting an expert is the one that receives the email with a link to pay for the listing (if user is not logged in). Users are required to fill in the mandatory fields Title, Description, and Email.

Expert Payment Part

So far we haven't seen any effect from the  CM Expert Directory Payments Add-On, this is the time when it kicks in.

After inputting their information and clicking "suggest an expert," users will see a notification. This notification can be changed in the  Payment Labels settings in the plugin.

The user can then go to their email and find a notification that includes the link to pay for the listing. This email can be customized in the Payments settings.

After clicking on the link, the user is brought to a checkout page with the item name, price, and payment options. They just need to input their information and click on the purchase button to pay for a listing.

After they purchase a listing, an email is sent with an activation link or the option to add an activation code directly to the listing activation page.

This is what the second option looks like:

Labels related to activating a listing can be edited in  Payment Labels settings. 

Alternatively, admin can add listings in the back-end and allow experts to claim the listing.
