I want to use WP eStore to collect rent on storage units. There are 27 units with 4 different prices. I will need a dropdown so the renter can select his unit number. Once he does that, the amount will show. Or, there might be a better way to do that.
Also, if they are late, I need to add a $10 late fee to the rent. Is this possible?
How would you recommend setting this up?
And, I have purchased the plugin and am currently using it on one site. Will I need a separate purchase for this new site?
Just to double check, did you change my email address? I did not receive a notice about my last post even though that option was checked.

yeah using a button with 4 different variation will do just fine or you can have 4 buttons for 4 different prices and they can select one of the buttons to pay.
Now, eStore has no way of knowing if a customer is late or not as it doesn’t have a calendar. So the way to handle this could be another button that lets them pay the late fees.
The other option is to use the “Customer Can Chose The amount” feature. This way you are relying on your customer can come to the payment page and specify the amount and then make a payment. You are relying on your customer to pay the right amount here though
eStore comes with a multi-site license for your own usage. So if you own this site then you don’t need to buy another copy. We did not change your email.October 24, 2010 at 11:02 am #25716
I was also thinking, that monthly rent is something like a subscription. He could use automatic recurring payments. That way, there would be no late fees.October 24, 2010 at 11:25 pm #25717
At $25, what a bargain this plugin is!
Please take a look at the output here: http://griselfstorage.com/pay-online/

1. How do I make the field narrower?
2. Can I change the button to say ‘Pay Now’?

WP eStore -> Add/Edit Products -> Additional Product Details -> Button Image URL
you can specify the graphic for your own button.
Not sure about the field width though…October 24, 2010 at 11:54 pm #25719
Thanks, I have figured it out.
Next, I’ll work on the recurring payments idea.October 25, 2010 at 11:18 pm #25720
Okay, I have everything set up to collect rent. Now for the recurring payments option.
To do this, I would need to set up 4 different buttons because I have four different prices, correct?
And, how is the recurring payment stopped? Do I do it?

Recurring payments are a form of subscription. It would be considered a separate “product.”
Only the subscriber can cancel a recurring payment, via their PayPal account settings.
Since only the subscriber can cancel the “subscription,” perhaps you can setup the number of billing periods as every month for 3, 6, 9, or 12 months.
