Paid Access 2017

Does anyone know if Ning is considering the Stripe payment gateway for the new Paid Access feature that they say will launch Q2 2017? In the past, Paid access was only compatible with Paypal, but Paypal requires that paying monthly site subscribers also sign up for a Paypal account. That's a major deterrent for potential subscribers. Stripe does not require monthly subscribers to sign up for Paypal. Does anyone else agree that Ning should launch the new Paid Access feature with Stripe compatibility in addition to Paypal?

  • idk if Ning is considering Stripe or not but yes, a few of us have brought it up and I'm hoping they implement it.  PayPal is great but there certainly are visitors who don't want to sign up for an account.  Stripe makes it painless.

  • I just added stripe payment using formget.com.

    • Naveen, please tell me more. Were you able to integrate Stripe with your Ning site in a way that requires people to pay as part of the signup process? 

  • Good point, Stripe is awesome. 

  • Hi there,

    We plan to initially release the PaidAccess for Ning 3.0 with PayPal and credit card support, however as we move on more and more payment methods will be supported. Currently, we are looking into more options so please stay tuned, as you can expect a preview of paid access with some insights in the nearest future.

    Sincerely yours,

    Ning Team.

    • Thanks for the response Kyryl, but based on Ning's history of not launching things on time, I can't rely on your statement. For all we know, it will take you guys years to implement Stripe, or you'll never implement it at all. I think launching Paid Access with only Paypal is a huge mistake. I was really hoping all the updates Ning promised for Q1 would be reason enough for me to come back to Ning after five years of being away. But considering what I've seen and learned about Ning in the past week, I think I've decided to build my network with Moosocial. They aren't perfect, but they seem to be meeting a lot of the demands Ning is still failing to meet.
