Features of Free Guest Post Plugin
Sponsored Content and Guest Posts

You can set different prices per Guest Post.
Post Due Date
Option to enter the payment due date for individual Guest Posts.
Option to change the payment status to “PAID” or “UNPAID” at any time.

PRO Plugin Features
Post Status after payment expires
Options include “PENDING”, “DRAFT” and “PUBLISH”. With the PRO version, you can decide what to do once the due date for payment has passed.
Example 1: You can Unpublish the article and send it to “Pending” mode.
Example 2: You can Unpublish the article and send it into “Draft” mode.
Example 3: You can keep the article published. This is useful for a client who always pays but might be outside of your set payment or publishing guidelines.
If a sponsored Guest Post remains unpaid after their due date, YOU can receive daily reminders of clients who haven’t paid. Once they have paid, you can login to your WordPress Admin and mark their post as paid. All reports will be updated accordingly.
Payment Overdue Notifications
There will be an email field in each post plugin setting where you can input your clients’ email. If they haven’t paid by the due date you enter, they will receive a payment reminder to let them know that their article has been unpublished due to non-payment (if your post status is set to “pending” or “draft”. This will remind them to pay immediately so that they can have their post republished. Once paid, go back and mark their post as “PAID” and republish their article.
Restrict other user profiles from viewing this plugin module in the backend of WP. Some admins need privacy if they have writers or third party contributors they don’t want to seeing details and statistics about their sponsored content. This is already built into the pro version without need for particular settings.
This is a great feature if you’d like to have additional content mangers who are paid per post. They MUST be and admin in order to become a post manger.
Example: Your hire someone and will pay them 20% for every post they upload. They would select their name from the dropdown box.
*We are currently working on additional features in reporting and user roles for Post Manger.
