  • Thank you!!!

    In summary, if you have a UNA site and you want your members to be able to sell things, you need to install and configure both the and apps. The configuration is pretty straight forward, but each seller on your website must configure their own payment credentials.

    There are 2 different potential sellers on your website: you, on behalf of your website, and the members, where they can sell their own things (if you have allowed this in configuration).

    If you want to sell things yourself, from your own website, like a Store or Shop feature, then you also need to configure credentials in Studio > Payments > Main seller (To sell on behalf of the site). To do this, you can set Main Seller to yourself, or to an that you create. If you sell with the name of an Organization, you need to install and configure Organizations, and then create one that represents your website.

    In any event, you will need to configure how to receive payments from members, and likewise, members will have to configure how they will receive payments from other members. This configuration is done in your Profile > Payments

    Here in Profile > Payments you will see the options. The only one that I know that is functional is PAYPAL. To reduce the amount of confusion you might get from your members when they try to configure payments, it might be worth considering disabling all other payment options except PAYPAL. You can toggle on and off which payment providers you want to to use on your site here: Studio > Payments > Providers. For my website, I only use PAYPAL, but maybe the others will work for you. Keep in mind that the more providers you allow to be used, the more it might confuse members that are trying to configure payment settings in their profile.

    Lastly, to configure payment settings for PAYPAL, go to Profile > Settings > Payments and select the payment provider you will use to accept payments from members that want to buy things from you or your website. Here are the settings I use:

    Active should be checked ON.

    Mode should be live.

    Business should be your PayPal Business account sigh-in email address.

    Process Type should be PDT.

    Identity Token you will get from this page:

    On this PayPal website page, you need the following:

    Auto Return should be ON.

    Return URL should be entered and saved, and it can be found at the bottom of Profile > Settings > Payments. On my website, the URL is https://Witches.Community/m/payment/finalize_checkout/paypal/3 (as an example)

    Payment Data Transfer should be ON. When you turn this ON, the Identity Token will show. That Identity Token needs to be entered on Profile > Settings > Payments > Identity Token

    Encrypted Website Payments should be ON.

    PayPal Account Optional should be OFF. (turning it ON can cause PayPal to reject the interaction)

    Back on Profile > Settings > Payments, should be empty.

    Now, this information works for me, but it might not be exactly what you need for your website. This is just what works for me on my site after 3 days of research. If you have more information to add to this, please comment here so that others can learn what works for you on your website.

    Edit (the next day) For Binary downloads that a seller sells, ... sellers (and you as Admin, if you are also a seller, or your Organization), should set Type to VERSION and Version to 1.0.0 for the download (binary zip) to show after the purchase. If you don't set this to VERSION and set the Version to 1.0.0 then the download item will not show after the member has payed for it! Also, you must click Use As Main ON.

    UNA Themes thank you for your time and patience. I'm going to take this information to my site and have a seller use these instructions to set up payments so they can sell and other members can buy. I'll check back here if there's any issues with my tests.

    • Okay thank you!

      This means that to sell, my members must have a Business account with . Okay. Next, we have Identity Token and and Sandbox. You have said that Sandbox is a testing environment, so this can be left blank... I have a small UNA site and I want to go live right away, I will leave Sandbox blank/empty.

      Now, the entire question comes down to this....and this is what EVERYONE setting up and app need to know. It all comes down to the Identity Token. How do we get an Identity Token?

      I have a Business account. I have access to Developer pages. 

      Here are some pages that may be involved, but they do not show an Identity Token:

      I found something called BrainTree on one of those pages, and it allows to create an Access Token that starts with something like: access_token$production$.......  Is this the correct token?

      Do you have any more information on how to obtain an Identity Token?

      Thank you very much, UNA Themes

      Who doesn't love a good whistleblower? Especially when they are spilling the dirt on our mates at Facebook. It is concerning stuff, Haugen’s document dump revealed what many suspected but couldn’t prove: that Facebook created more lenient secret rules for elite users, that Instagram made body issues worse for one in three teen girls, and that Facebook knowingly amped up outrage on its main site through an algorithm change in 2018, potentially leading to the January 6 storming of the US Capitol building. Her suggestion is greater transparency, with external observers and more investment toward internal guidance, looking to minimise harm as a highest priority.

        • Don't take me wrong, I think FB sucks.  But... I say... "Increased regulation and transparency, improve rather than dismantle"  Come down on them hard and let that be an example to the rest of them.

          • I feel “increased regulation and transparency“ will not be followed and FB will continue to do what they want if it is not completely destroyed.

          • The reason why FB will be hard to stop is that many other social networks have let them steal their ideas with almost no effort. In order for a Social Network to compete with Facebook it would need a new innovative idea concept and then fiercely defend it from being stolen. I believe UNA has the potential to do this. They did it with Dolphin wich had an army of developers in the Marketplace and had new ideas that Facebook didn't have. Had Dolphin been faster with updating the site to fit mobile and apps we might have had a few UNA site contenders. My old website had over 35,000 members with ZERO advertising from all over the world. People flock to sites that have something NEW...but once Facebook steals the idea...well people go right back to Facebook. So we need a site that has everything Facebook has but pushes for new innovation ideas and stays ahead of what people are interested in. Dolphin was once light years ahead of Facebook but now UNA is far behind most sites with stuff like Livestreaming etc. With this new UNA team I do believe we can quickly catch up...the team needs to be open to new ideas and what's popular even if it's something they themselves aren't interested in. Maybe assign a couple members to be part of a research team that looks for new ideas and concepts.

            • Yes Facebook has the financial backing for sure, and this is why they can buy up competitors such a Instagram and others. It is a difficult task to remain in the Facebook shadows due to this. This is why it is important for module developers to remain aggressive to having a Eagle Eye on what's new on Facebook. Facebook NEVER had Forums, It never had a features to say; buy drinks, flowers, Tags or gifts either. This is a important factor, nor has it ever had any kind of points or credits system. There is still so many things to add to the UNA arsenals that our social platforms needs to keep and entice new members. I to had a social site on a Dolphin platform (60,000 members), which I am bringing back because of the availability of modules that I can implement. Until UNA has these modules available it is difficult to compete in the Facebook market. I will continue with UNA as well, in hopes that things livin up for the social endeavors. I am finding it difficult to base my site on freedom of speech only. People want activities and content, or your right. They will gravitate to where these things are.

            • i think UNA would prosper more if the team started a hackathon for new features with a few prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd to incentivize feature creation from any market developer but its just an idea.

                      Compatible with all payment providers from the Payments app.

                      This is the best and faster way to monetize your dating website or social network.

                      Make your own alternative to Onlyfans, AVN Stars, Patreon, Just For Fans (JFF) and Unlockd. All those website owners are making money so quickly by letting their users earn money with their content, this is your chance to make money too.

                      After installing this Module, it will start displaying a switch for marking content for fans only in the "Add" and "Edit" forms of all content.

                      Persons and Organizations can publish their content for fans only.

                      Persons and Organizations need to subscribe paying the amount set by the profile owner to become fans.

                      This module works site-wide, it auto-integrates with all content-based modules (Videos, Photos, Albums, Posts, Forum Discussions, TikTak Short Videos, Ads, Market, Timeline Posts and all Third party modules which generates text content if they extends from Base->Text module).


                      • Persons and Organization features
                        • Users can set their own subscription prices (amount) and duration (Day, Week, Month, Year). 
                        • Users can set their content for fans only
                        • Users can subscribe to each others content by paying the subscription price
                        • In content's page, the content is replaced for an image and text inviting them to subscribe to their profile.
                        • In grids and listings, each unit that was marked for fans only is replaced by an image if the user is not subscribed
                        • When a subscribed user loads the same pages, the content is displayed
                        • If subscription expires and they paid using a recurring payments provider, it will automatically renew the subscription.
                        • If did buy subscription using single payments provider, they need to pay again to renew the subscription when it expires.

                      • Admin features
                        • Admin can choose in which modules the content can be marked "for fans only"
                        • Admin can change the custom image that will replace the original image and content
                        • Admin can change the mini custom image that will replace the content preview text in forum grid (Discussions home).

                      This useful module lets you monetize your own content or the content of your users, the payment is processed by the Payments Module, the website owner can enable commissions for user payments and get a % of the money generated by all users.

                      When they mark their content for fans only


                      This is what the users see, they need to subscribe to see the content.

                                      I'm trying to install the Ads, Channels, Organisations and Payment modules and all of them are coming up with this error "Check the script version for compatibility:
                                      The module is not compatible with your version of UNA"

                                          What version of UNA core do you have? Possible there was a mix with the beta release and stable apps in the market. If you have 12.0.1 then you may try to delete all those apps in the Apps Market->Downloded section and install it again. I was watching this trouble 2 days ago and this way was successful.
