[Guide] Create and Sell Products on WordPress With AccessAlly

Create and sell products on WordPress for online courses, memberships, and other programs using AccessAlly's beautiful custom order forms.

These products may be set up as single-purchases or as a subscription model (with recurring payments).

How the Commerce Feature Works

With AccessAlly, you receive a powerful tool that helps you sell more, with the following features:

  • Order Forms, which allow you to sell your products as one-time product purchases, payment plans, and subscription payment options
  • Coupons & discounts, which can help incentivize buyers to complete their orders
  • Integration with affiliate link tracking, so your affiliates receive the correct compensation amount.
  • 1-click upsell capabilities
  • Able to sell a single product in multiple currencies
  • Offer an upsell on the order form itself
  • 1-click purchases, so logged-in members don’t need to re-enter their payment info

What selling products looks like on your site:

A typical selling sequence looks like this:

  1. A prospective client lands on a page with an order form.
  2. When the user inserts their name and email, AccessAlly saves this info to your CRM. (This makes it possible to follow up with an abandoned cart email, should the purchase not go through.)
  3. Once the order is completed, AccessAlly automatically creates a username and password for the client, and gives them the appropriate permission tags so they can immediately access the content they purchased.

There are many fancy add-ons, from expiring coupon codes to order bumps, free trials, and payment plans. But no matter what you've set up behind the scenes, the user will receive the same easy purchase experience. 

Here's What You'll Need to Start Taking Payments in AccessAlly:
