Tagged: multiple levels

The membership site I am working on allows users to monitor a certain number of items.
For Exmaple: Monitoring prices of a certain quantity of stocks.
(Does not actually monitor stocks but makes the same point easier)
I want to charge per item they are monitoring in increments of say 10 in this example.
I always will know the number of items they wish to monitor as well.
10 items the monthly subscription would be $10
20 items the monthly subscription would be $20
30 items the monthly subscription would be $30
I may have up to 10 levels.
So in this use case, can you recommend and describe how to best implement this?
Single lever or Multiple level Memberships (MM)?
I read this page:
Where MM is described as stacking. In my case, I do not care about stacking. I just care about the final level which will tell me how many items they can monitor in this use case.
But maybe it could work if it just adds the difference to the subscription price for each upgrade bought?
Do upgrades with MM mean the user will have multiple PayPal subscriptions at possibly different renewal points?
The default might be best as the link above states “When they make a payment for a different membership level, their current level is upgraded to the one they just paid for”
The highest level paid for is all I really care about but I need to understand how the upgrades work to make them simple for the end user upgrading. I think problems could arise if the user upgrades once a week and has multiple subscriptions unless he manually cancels each. Is there a Best Practices way to implement this all?
Any suggestions on how to implement this and allow for upgrades in the least confusing manner for the end user.
I was planning on using PayPal buttons but also bought eStore so can generate buttons with it as well it seems.

Definitely use the single membership level approach. You don’t need multiple membership option for what you are trying to do.
