Profile Based Plan

Profile Based Plan App, assigns the plan to user free of cost on registration according to user's ProfileType/UserGroup. Profile Based Plan App, supports variety of profile types, like - JomSocial Profile, EasySocial Profile, JSPT Profile and Joomla User Group.

Scenario : Let’s say you are using EasySocial with PayPlans on your site and want to assign a sign-up plan to users freely when they subscribe to PLAN-1 OR select Profile-A. Then to achieve it in Profile Based Plan plugin, you need to set the parameters *Profile Type to be used to EasySocial Profile Type and Sign-Up Plan to PLAN-2. Similarly create app instance of Profile Based Plan App and set parameters UserType to Profile-A and Sign-Up Plan to PLAN-2 and Save.

Now, when user register and subscribe PLAN-1 and profile type is Profile-A and then completes registration process, then Profile Based Plan App will assign PLAN-2 freely along with PLAN-1 as sing-up plan.

Work-Flow of Profile Based Plan App/Plugin

So, this app will assign plans to user according to profile type. If you haven’t created any instance of this app then it will work as Default Plan App and assign the default plan specified in Plugin configuration.
