Purchasing single articles

Postby iluber » Wed Oct 14, 2009 1:13 am

Hello, I have just looked at OJS 2.3 release notes and I cannot find anything about single article purchase.
I had a look at the test version before the release and the implementation was there and announced as part of 2.3 official release.
I have searched the forum but I have not been able to find any piece of news about that

Since I plan to use the functionality in the next months but I cannot test 2.3 now , can someone let me know if the functionality is there ?

Hi iluber,

Yes, article purchase support is available in OJS 2.3 and has been available in previous releases as well.

You'll find the details as part of the Payments module, where you will need to enable PayPal to allow users to purchase articles online.

Cheers,
Michael

Micheal in this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4745&p=18510#p18479

you told me that single article purchasing would have started only in 2.3.
Did you mean here that the backend interface was already in 2.2.3 ?
Beacuse frontend was not there for sure

Hi Ivano,

There is a difference between purchasing subscriptions online and purchasing individual articles online. The former is only available since OJS 2.3, whereas the latter has been available in OJS before 2.3 as part of the PayPal module.

The relevant post is this one.

Cheers,
Michael
