If you’ve been waiting to start generating revenue from your Ning Network, the wait is now over. Starting today, the optional Paid Access add-on is available to all of our customers — Mini, Plus & Pro. You’ll find it on your Dashboard.
Not sure how it works? We have a number of Help Center articles that cover this feature in great detail. Here’s a good place to start.
Still thinking about how it might work for your network? Head to your Dashboard and dig into the advice and best practice content located there. We even have a PDF document you can download and read at your leisure.
Ready to get going right now? You can turn it on from your Dashboard and start making money today. You get paid whenever your members pay.
This optional add-on feature won’t be for everyone, but we’ve already seen some amazing results from the first group of Network Creators who have tried it out. Let us know how it works for you.
Doh! Thanks Eric .....perfect!
James, we have a lot of documentation in the Help Center, including these FAQs. They cover details like how many paywalls can you set up (mix and match as many as you want).
Thanks for this new method to pay. With a lot of changes in mind, the boss of the group who is controlling our network (katananteonimaki.ning.com) has asked me to continue this network but I do not know how! Well I'm still trying to fix my credit card with the bank that I registered my account. Recently I received a message from NING that my network will be closed at the end of this month. If it closed down, could I re-open it when my credit card is available?
You can do a network transfer with the NC if you want, Areruu. Details here.
Good Service for Sure, yet again, it is not for all members, and the cost for NC's is a bit unjust as many of us are trying to assist towards Building the NING name, and it is only fair to allow NC's to utilize and introduce the Service to their current members too .. Maybe a bit of class 101 about " Employee Share Planning" or NC Share Planing ..
If I upload my premium videos, music, articles, reports, ebooks, and webinars to my network, as yesterday's advertisements invited me to do, and then embed them behind a paywall, does "Paid Access" insure that the content embedded behind the "paywall" may only be viewed by "Paid Access" subscribers, or can urls linking to content be subsequently shared to enable non-paying customers with "free" access? Thanks in advance!
The paid access right now is extremely basic... Ideally there should an option when submitting any content to "make available only to paid members" and when visitors try to access they would get a notification that the content is only for paid members. still a lot to be done on this. I assume Ning knows that but they where "desperate" to release an early version (due to roadmap and popular demand I suppose) ... I'm not convinced by it.. but I hope we gonna see updates on this soon. and i mean GOOD updates and updates that WORK
We designed the feature to protect content on Pages. just like the toolbar in this comment box, you can upload files, photos and videos and they wont show up in your network.
Awesome Dan, thanks.
Is there a file size limit for say, instructional videos, that could be uploaded into that space?
if it's embed only, and we have to host it somewhere else, that hurts Nings value proposition quite a bit.
James, we have gone to great lengths to keep current privacy options and paid access options separate so there is no confusion about how it works. Your privacy settings are preserved. It's a private page, and only members who have paid to access it can access that URL. If you upload an ebook to a page, the only people who can download it are people who have paid.
It sounds like this may not work for you, James. If you embed a public video on a page, it won't add any privacy options to that public video. Basically, any content you can upload or place on a page will be private. Embedded content that is publicly visible in its source location won't be then made private by being embedded on a paid-access page.
