  • Can you have a pay forum with vBulletin?

    Just curious if there is a feature that you can use to make people pay to be members of your forum? Something that does the billing automaticly? If so, how does it work?

    Yes, vBulletin does include a built-in paid subscription function. You can view the documentation here:

        To pull off what I think you're thinking of doing, you'd use subscriptions and usergroup additions. You can get more help once you have bought a license and registered for priority support here.

          There's also a modification on vbulletin.org that changes the registration system to 'Pay-to-register'. You specify an amount, and once processed - the person becomes registered.

                  Depends what your forum offers, if it offers suitable value and the price point is right then they might. Just like many people will pay to get vBulletin when numerous free alternatives also exist. So yeah, I think if you offer suitable value people would pay (but generally I think that would be extremely rare for the large majority of forums). Premium accounts on the other hand often prove quite popular.
