Community Discussion: Recurring Payments for Browse Resumes
We have been notified by some of our customers that the new browse resumes feature in JobRoller requires the purchaser to have a PayPal account.
Well, AppThemes contacted PayPal to discuss this issue and this is what we found out. PayPal offers a service called "Enhanced Recurring Payments". With this service, your site's users will not need a PayPal account to subscribe to browse resumes on your JobRoller site. The service is $19.99 per month. Without "Enhanced Recurring Payments", users will need a PayPal business account to browse resumes.
There are other services and options available from PayPal, but this is the most accessible and least expensive.
We have discussed this internally and we realize that this might be less than optimal for some of our customers. For the time being, this will be the only option available for browsing resumes in JobRoller.
However, we are going to look into adding an alternative payment structure for browsing resumes. One thought is to add an option that would allow resume browsing for a set price and a specified period of time. Price and browsing period would be set in the JobRoller admin.
We are also researching alternative payment gateways that might offer benefits over PayPal.
We would like to get your opinions on this. What do you think about recurring payments with PayPal? Are you paying the extra monthly fee or requiring users to make payments with a PayPal account? Tell us what you think about the alternative payment structure proposed above.
Tell us what you think.
