Hello everyone, We are actively improving our software based on your suggestions and over the past few months we have been very busy building solutions on top of AVChat. Requested by many of you, today we are happy to announce the launch of our NEW Pay Per Session plugin for WordPress. While in the past we have tried our best to cover this topic by writing articles such as How to Build a Paid Video Chat Membership Website with WordPress, AVChat 3 and PayPal these solutions relied on third party plugins and left our clients with alot of setting up to do. We were not satisfied with such complex solutions and we always felt we could do much better. So, with our new plugin you can forget setting up everything and focus on what’s more important: selling your services as audio/video sessions. With our new all in one Pay Per Session plugin for WordPress, you can benefit from alot of features – among many others, we highlighted only the most important below:
- Easily assign consultants, monitor payments, view past and upcoming audio/video sessions
- Create host profiles with avatars, cover images, bio, videos and availability
- PayPal ready: just enter your e-mail. You can accept payments instantly
- PayPal payments protection: audio/video sessions won’t start if there is a cancelled or invalid payment
- Centralized payments: all payments are made towards a single account, thus making it easy for service providers to focus on their sessions
- Perfect transparency: each service provider (host) can view who bought their service
- Extend profiles with links to Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn
- Don’t worry about design, as it is fully responsive
- WordPress user & avatar integration
- Dead simple to use: just drop the
[hosts]shortcode into any page of your WordPress site
- Share everything, from YouTube videos, emoticons, images to file uploads with your clients
- Instant e-mail notifications: on new payment, on new service bought (for both the host and the client)
What DOES it do?Pay Per Session enables any user with a WordPress site to host one on one audio/video sessions for which visitors or other site members can buy for a fee or even for free. All payments are automatically handled by PayPal while our plugin makes sure a session isn’t already delivered or that payments haven’t been declined. Pay Per Session uses the latest stable AVChat software to deliver a high quality audio/video stream making room for a solid experience between the service provider and the client.
What CAN I do with it?The Pay Per Session plugin has a broad range of possible applications in the education, legal and medical industries where live online video chat sessions over the Internet between consultants and their clients have become the norm. That being said, anything that needs live 1on1 audio, video and text chat can be handled by our plugin. Examples: You are you a consultant, developer, teacher or lawyer and want to sell your services, we got you covered. You are an online business owner and wish for your employees to provide live video chat consultations over the web – you are one plugin away from it.
How much does it cost? Where do I purchase from?The plugin costs $79, one time fee and can be purchased together with AVChat and media server hosting from http://avchat.net/integrations/pay-per-session-video-chat-plugin. You will also need AVChat which starts at $130. AVChat handles the video chat part of the plugin when two persons have to meet over the Internet using audio video and text chat. See all the available AVChat licenses in the purchase link above. And you will need media server hosting for AVChat. You can run your own media server on a VPS but you can also purchase hassle free media server hosting from us for as low as $14.99/month. See all the hosting plans in the purchase link above.
