MySubscriptions - Paid Usergroup Subscriptions

Create subscriptions with Paypal IPN to monetize a forum through "premium" usergroups.

Project Details

MySubscriptions is an advanced subscription plugin for Mybb. It allows the administrator to install a payments system for different groups on their forums. The plugin works similar to vBulletin's payments system included by default.


With MySubscriptions, you are able to set multiple prices/times for the same subscription. This makes it easier for the user to purchase a subscription for whatever amount of time they want, as long as the administrator added it.

Currently, payments can be made through Paypal. The plugin uses Paypal's IPN functions to recognize when users pay and upgrade them to the appropriate group.

Using Mybb's tasks, users will be reverted back to their main group after the expiration time has passed.

To use MySubscriptions, follow the README.txt provided in the archive. When you activate this plugin in your ACP, all of its features will be disabled. To enable these, you must go to the Settings tab under the MySubscriptions page and enable the plugin. Before enabling this plugin, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IPN ENABLED ON PAYPAL. This step is *critical* or your subscriptions will not work. You must also set the ipn url to: {MYBB_ROOT}/misc.php?do=paypal_ipn
Where {MYBB_ROOT} is your full website's url and path to your mybb installation.

If you encounter any issues, please let me know.
