Easily calculate and handle authors’ pay on a multi-author blog by computing posts’ remuneration basing on admin defined rules. The administrator can specify criteria upon which payments should be computed and the stats will immediately be viewable. Both a general view with all users and a specific one for a author are possible. It can easily help you implement a revenue sharing/paid to write model for your business.
- Pay per post, word, visit (tutorial), image and comment (not mutually exclusive).
- Pay with an incremental system (eg. each word is €0.01 => 100 words = €1) or with a zonal one (eg. from 200 to 300 words/visits it’s €2.00, up to 10 zones).
- No account needed. Data is yours, no need to sign-up to anything really.
- Old stats availability. View posts countings since the first written post, disregarding the plugin install date. A fancy date picker lets you shift between days and select the desired range.
- Personalize user’s settings, so that special settings only apply to a particular user. Different settings can be made viewable in the stats or hidden depending on your needs.
- Customizable permissions to prevent your users to see stats and use functions they are not supposed to.
- Extend with your own custom implementation through hooks, filters and special API features.
- And… works with custom post types, narrow your payments only to chosen user groups, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
You said I could pay per visit. How do I do that?
There’s an apt tutorial here. However, note that Post Pay Counter does not keep track of visits, it can only keep it in mind when computing the payment. You either need to have a plugin who keeps track of visits, and put the post_meta name of the field in which it stores the visits (must be a number), or get the PRO version of Post Pay Counter and use your Google Analytics account to get visits data.
I installed the plugin but it does not show up in the menu. Also, if I go to the settings page, it says I am not authorized
That is probably due to a permissions manager plugin you have on your blog. Check that capabilities post_pay_counter_access_stats and post_pay_counter_manage_options are correctly assigned and working.
Can I pay for BBPress contents?
It is indeed possible to pay for BBPress topics and replies with Post Pay Counter.
In Post Pay Counter > Options > Miscellanea > Allowed post types, make sure you haveTopic and Reply ticked, and those types of contents will be included in countings.
I don’t want errors to be logged
Set to false the constant PPC_DEBUG_LOG in post-pay-counter.php, it is located at line 44. From this: define( ‘PPC_DEBUG_LOG’, true ); It must become: define( ‘PPC_DEBUG_LOG’, false );
