Easy way to charge for paid access when new member registers?


Well-known member
Does anyone know of an easy way to charge a user upfront when they first register? Basically, I want to run a paid members-only forum (no free or guest members).

The current way of doing things with the user upgrades doesn't work, because it's too many extra steps and confusing. Does anyone know how to move the paypal payment function upfront to the main registration page? You create a user account and complete checkout through paypal.

Or if we can do it through Stripe and have a credit card form, even better! Any ideas?
