Count Limit + Count Unique URLs Access

Imagine that you have a category with, say, 10 articles and you would like to restrict the category with Membership plan but allow the subscriber to see only, say,  5 articles out of 10. In other words, you want the subscriber to have access to any 5 articles out of 10 during the subscription’s period. To create such a plan, do the following:
 

1)Create a subscription plan, name it somehow, set the price to it, set the period to it and select the category which you need to be restricted for non-subscribers.
 
2)Enter  5 into the “Count Limit” field
 
3)Select “Count Unique URLs Access” for the ‘Count Limit Mode’ option
 
4)Save the subscription plan.
 

count limit 1

 

If the user purchases this subscription, he gets a chance to access only 5 content items restricted by this plan during the whole period of subscription. For instance, if you set 1 month as a period for your subscription, the user will have access to those 5 content items during 1 month.

Such restrictions can be applied to both categories of articles and components. If you use ‘Count Unique URLs Access’ mode and set a number for the ‘Count Limit’ field, you limit the number of restricted content items that a subscriber can access. Each unique content item/URL the subscriber accesses counts.

Count Limit + Count Every Access

Imagine that you have an article(or some URL) which you want to be accessed by the subscriber a particular number of times. For example, you want the subscriber to access the article or certain URL only 3 times during the entire subscription period.

To create such a plan, do the following:
 

1)Create a subscription plan, name it somehow, set the price to it, set the period to it and restrict the URL in the ‘Components restrictions’ tab. Or check ‘Article Individualization’ and put the {JCSBOT SUBSCRIPTION=subscription_plan_id} into the article body.
 
2)Enter  3 into the “Count Limit” field
 
3)Select “Count Every Access” for the ‘Count Limit Mode’ option
 

4) Save the subscription plan.
