    Off the top of my head, there are two ways you can do this:

    1. The simplest way is to create a page on your wordpress site with a paypal link (button) for them to signup for a membership and then just manually give them access to whatever pages you want. Paypal will let you create subscription buttons and customize them for whatever subscription duration you want ($15 per month, $10 per week, whatever)

    2. Another method would be to automate your memberships with a paid plugin. I found http://www.memberwing.com/buy/ in my search just now, which offers a free evaluation version which looks like it has everything you need. Assuming you make money off the site, you could start with the free version and eventually pay the measly $100 bucks to upgrade it.

    Hope this helps.

    And just as an added note, if you are new to wordpress, there is a feature to allow signups, you just need to point people to wp-signup.php
