    I have got some exclusive content that I want to give to my site users who want extra value. Like Pictures, and videos for example. How do I lock certain content on pages that will only be released to users who subscribe for a monthly fee through paypal or pay a set amount to have access to certain digital content?

    The help is much appreciated.

    Wow this list is expansive i like that the membership 2 one is free, i've heard some good things about pay per view as well. That seems to be a paid plug in. Do you have any experiences using any of these plug ins? thanks for the list by the way.

    I haven't used any of them myself (well, except #10, but that's not a plugin, just a feature built into Wordpress), so I wouldn't be able to tell you which one of those is good.

    If you can code, an easy way to do this is just generate a random hash and create a path/route based on that. But isolate the page (no other pages linking to it, not on sitemap). So it will never get indexed, and it can only be accessed if someone has the random hash URL. This is how paid content downloads usually work (or are similar, at least).

    The problem is if it isn't a temporary download (link doesn't expire), you'll have to have some sort of password auth. Otherwise users can just share the link to everyone.
