Community doesn't have to be free.

By creating areas of your site accessible only to certain premium usergroups, you can offer paid upgrades to your users to gain access to those usergroups and in turn, your premium content.

Payments

Each community's needs are different, so XenForo allows you to configure multiple payment processors for your in-community purchases, including PayPal, credit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay and more.

Custom processors

If your payment processor of choice is not supported out of the box, the XenForo add-on system allows custom profiles for any payment processor to be defined.

User upgrades

Paid upgrades offer all the flexibility you need to configure your grant paid access to your facilities.

For sale or rent

User upgrades may be configured as permanent, or may expire after a defined period, opening the door to recurring subscriptions.

Fine-grained options

Because user upgrades are usergroup based, which in turn bring the permissions system to the table, you are able to attach a monetary value to any feature or area of your community.
