CM Expert Directory Payments (CMED Add-On) - User View - Paying to Suggest 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 an expert, users can go to the Suggest an Expert page. This URL is available at 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.
