Increase your profits by selling All Access memberships – which give your customers an extremely improved experience. All (or just some) of your store’s products will be right at your customers’ fingertips when they need them. After purchasing a membership, they simply log in and start downloading products. Your customers spend more than they otherwise would have, and also get more for their money – everyone wins.

When your customers purchase an All Access Pass, they can log in and browse your site for products they’d like to download. Instead of seeing the normal “Buy Now” button, they’ll see a “Download” button in its place. No more scrolling through long, un-searchable “purchase history” pages. Your products are already laid-out beautifully on your website and WordPress has built-in search functionality. All Access puts that to work by letting your customers download directly from each product’s sales page.

This makes for an amazingly smooth user experience when looking for a specific product from your store. In seconds, they can search, find, and download without needing to pay anything additional. They can download anything they want, whenever they want – and ONLY what they want. This makes it simple, easy, and useful to your customers.

Duration periods

An All Access Pass will expire at the time interval you choose. When a customer’s All Access Pass expires, they won’t be able to download any more products unless they renew it by re-purchasing. This opens the door to recurring income as customers aren’t just paying for your files – but also the convenience of using your website. They can use your website like a utility “cloud” drive which saves them hard drive space and goes with them everywhere. This ease-of-use makes paying a recurring fee worthwhile. If you want to automatically accept recurring payments from your All Access customer (as opposed to making them manually repurchase each period), check out the EDD Recurring extension. It perfectly pairs with All Access.

Limit All Access to specific products

By default, All Access gives access to all products in the store. However, you can limit an All Access Pass so that it gives the customer access to just a specific category of products, or even specific product variations.

Sell Membership Levels

This also makes it possible to sell membership “levels”. For example, you could create 3 All Access Products called “Gold”, “Silver”, and “Bronze”. Then you could set the “Bronze” product to only give access to “small” product variations, “Silver” to give access to “medium” product variations, and “Gold” to give access to everything. Customers can then choose the membership level that works best for them and their budget.

Download limits

If you’d like to limit the number of downloads the customer can use per day, simply enter the number when creating the All Access Pass product. When the customer uses up their downloads per day, they will no longer be able to download anything else that day. You can limit their downloads on daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly periods.

Restricted embedded content

If you want restrict the viewable content of any page, post, or product so that only your valid members can view the content (like embedded videos or text), All Access does that as well. It includes easy-to-use shortcodes which you can wrap around embedded content so that only valid members can view it.

The content restriction shortcode built-into All Access goes much further than simply restricting content to your valid members. It also improves the user experience by smartly outputting a login form alongside the purchase button (only when needed – if the user is logged out). Your existing members won’t have to go hunting for login forms and non-members can easily purchase access. Once they have purchased and logged in, the restricted content is unlocked so they can view it.

Examples of how All Access could be used

Just about every Digital Shop could greatly benefit from using this extension. Here are a few that stand out:

– Photographers selling their own photos
– Stock media websites
– Multi-vendor marketplaces
– Royalty-Free media websites
– Websites selling software
– Video rental websites (like mini-Netflix sites)
– Music lesson websites
– Online training websites
– Selling courses
– Band/Artist websites (VIP content)
– Selling eBooks or audio books
– Selling sheet music, quilting instructions/templates, PDFs, etc.

Photographers selling their own photos

Selling images gains a whole new earning possibility with the ecosystem provided by EDD All Access. As a photographer, now your customers can use your website like a “cloud” – logging in and downloading photos whenever they need and paying you every month for access to your photo files. The convenience (searching, organization, etc) provided by your website will be well worth the price to customers who need your photos. Plus, customers who might have only purchased 1 or 2 photos have the option to pay more than they might have otherwise, while getting an extremely improved experience and access to way more photos.

Royalty-Free media websites

The same benefits that Photographers get can be applied to any type of media being sold. Whether you sell music, sound effects, video clips, or any other type of downloadable file, your customers get this same “cloud” experience which means they don’t need to clutter up their own hard drives with files they might need for a project. Instead, they simply log into your website and download what they need, when they need it. Your site can turn them into a recurring customer and your customers get a much improved experience. It’s a win-win situation for both you and your customers.

Stock websites/multi-vendor marketplaces

All Access is perfect for “Stock” marketplace websites with thousands of photos, songs, videos, graphics, or files from different vendors. Because of the integration with the EDD Commissions extension, splitting up a customer’s All Access Payment is handled automatically. By only paying commissions to vendors whose products were actually downloaded by the customer, you will attract high quality vendors who consistently make great products – and weed out vendors just looking to make easy money. You won’t be paying vendors unless they actually add value to your digital shop.

Large bundles

With a single click, any of your store’s categories can become “bundles” that are for sale. For example, a music website could sell an entire “Songs” category as a bundle. You don’t need to re-upload product files and your bundles can have an unlimited number of files in them.

Video rentals

Websites selling video rentals, video tutorials (like, music lessons, or any other type of restricted video content are simpler than ever. By using the included shortcodes to make embedded video content available only to active, paying, All Access customers, you can sell access to your already-hosted videos in minutes.

Integrations with other EDD extensions

Powerful integrations have been built with the major EDD extensions to unlock amazing new possibilities for your digital shop.

Sell recurring All Access passes with Recurring Payments

All Access has seamless integration with the EDD Recurring Payments extension, allowing you to sell All Access Pass memberships that automatically renew when the customer’s automatic subscription payments come in.

Split profits earned from All Access fairly through Commissions

If your digital shop has products from many different Vendors and you want to pay fair commissions to them, the All Access extension also integrates with the EDD Commissions extension to perfectly calculate a fair, weighted commission based on which Vendor’s products the customer chose to download with their All Access Pass. See how it works.

Sell master licenses through Software Licensing

Sell Software and use the EDD Software Licensing extension? It completely integrates there as well – allowing you to sell All Access Licenses. That means your customers can purchase a single license that works for all of your products and you don’t need to change a single line of code. When the All Access Pass expires, so does the license key. This is also great for Bundles of software that need to share a single license key.
