I am building out a membership based website using Orchard CMS. What is the best streamlined method to have this happen? Is there any plugins? methods? that anyone else has tried and succeeded in accomplishing this???

Is there an add on for Magelia webstore? Should it be easy enough to do simply with paypal reoccurring payments?

Used to using wordpress where this happens by adding a plugin.... need a little push in the right direction here please.

Also look at workflows for recurring activities.

There is a module that provides a periodic event to be triggered from workflows :

Yes I saw the Magelia plugin. But is there a plugin then for magelia that will allow for people to purchase those memberships. I appologize. I am used to working with wordpress and in a php enviroment. Learning a lot but any kick to the head you guys can give me would help a lot.

So for example in woocommerce for magento there is an add on for selling memberships... this then integrates with their "user" so that it times out and charges accordingly.

fortunately all they want to use for payments is paypal. I know that I can go create reoccurring buttons on paypal and drop them in... what's the easiest way to set the "timer" on the user so that it times out their access?
