Pay Per Session - active session

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[…]

Hello! I’m Lucian and I’m now responsible for integrating AVChat with WordPress and all other CMS’ AVChat integrates with. I have recently taken on the task from Radu. We decided to start the year with a huge overhaul for our WordPress video chat plugins. We took a good look at the highest rated WordPress plugins and made a promise to reflect things we’ve seen and loved into our own plugins. Therefore, we present you with two major upgrades that will ease the AVChat administration and give your WordPress website users and admins a much better experience: Video Chat Plugin Standard for WordPress, version 2.0 Video Chat Plugin PRO for WordPress, version 3.0 The Standard plugin can be downloaded for free from or from your own WordPress backend[…]

Hi everyone, Today I’ll show you how to set up a paid membership website using AVChat 3, WordPress, s2Member Framework for tracking membership and PayPal as a payment system. Apart from ads, memberships are a good source of revenue for sustaining a website. To show how much flexibility you have we’ve gone overboard and decided to build a website with 6 different user roles, 2 free and 4 of them will be paid. Each of them will have different permissions in line with their subscription plan. We’ve chosen the permissions for each user role so that: visitors are encouraged to register, registered members are encouraged to subscribe to a paid membership and paying members are encouraged to upgrade to a better plan.[…]

The entire code has been reviewed and improved. We’ve also added proper support for multisite setups, more permissions and we’ve totally updated the documentation. Major improvements: We’ve moved the PRO plugin to a separate folder (wp-content/plugins/avchat-3-pro) so that the WP update mechanism does not confuse it with the Standard version available on We’ve added 8 new permissions that you can control for each user role: admin can kick, admin can ban, admins can view ips, admin can silence, admin can view private messages, admin can access the[…]
