Home Support Extensions Paid Listings Allow more than one package per user

Allow more than one package per user

    @Ihor – i have more than one free package – and in case a person wants to use one package – and then use another Free Package – it is not happening. In the packages section of the person – it shows only one Package.

    Can you help with this ?

    What if later – we have paid packages and a person wants to use that for another listing while having a Free Package also – is that also possible ?


    On the select package page after Entering Details – it shows Limit Exceeded – on one Free Package and is not allowing to select another Free Package.

    Also is it possible to have the Select Package before filling in the Form ?

    Please let me know if these free packages are assigned to different categories or they’re global for all categories? There can be only one free package within the same category scope.

    It’s not possible to make the package selection step the first because packages may depend on the listing details and category.


    @Ihor – thank you – what if we could have some notional payment – like some points that can be redeemed – or a special code which gives them some virtual money – how can I implement this – so that the user can in effect use another package – “paid” – but its actually “paid” in unreal money.
    Do advise.
    Thank you very much

    Since package payments are powered by WooCommerce you can try using some “wallet” extension for WooCommerce like this one


    thank you @Ihor – will try that – so does that mean that i can have multiple paid packages at the same time.


    i think i need to rephrase the question – can a buyer – buy more than one package – and keep them – and use them – at will – with the account.
    For example there is a restriction of just one Free Package for one Category – but suppose there are multiple paid packages in one category – can someone buy and use many of them – at the same time ?

    Yes, it’s possible to purchase multiple packages, but there’s no option for selecting which one you want to use when you add or renew a listing, the package with the higher limit will be selected automatically.


    Thanks ihor with your answers above.

    Just wanted to add my testing results (in case they are relevant).
    I have two packages:
    Package 1 – Free (with limit of 20, and listing expiration of 1 day)
    Package 2 – Paid (with limit of 1000, and listing expiration of 100 days)

    Test case:
    A user adds a first Listing and selects the Free package (There are two options for packages).
    Then the user adds a second Listing (but there is no option to choose a package). (Note: The first listing and the second listing category).

    Test result:
    The test seems to indicate that the user is “stuck” with the first selected package (Free).

    (at) ihor: Please delete this comment if you disagree with the test result.


    Typo correction to the above message:
    (Note: The first listing and the second listing have the same category).

    Question to ihor:
    Assume there are three packages:
    Package 1 – Free (with limit of 1, and listing expiration of 1 day)
    Package 2 – Paid (with limit of 1000, and listing expiration of 100 days)
    Package 3 – Paid (with a limit of 2000, and listing expiration of 200 days)

    Assume the user adds their first listing and selected Package 1 (Free).
    Then the user decides to add a second listing.
    Will HivePress automatically select a Package for the second listing? If yes, which Package would be automatically selected?

    P.S. I’ll also test this when I have time. I am just trying to understand how HivePress should work at the moment.
    P.P.S. I’m grateful that I found HivePress. I’ll donate to HivePress after I succeed with getting a first customer.

    Thanks for your feedback! I understand that selecting a package manually would be a nice option (especially if packages have different features, not just listing limit), and it’s already on the roadmap. At the moment if there are 2+ packages, HivePress selects the one with the higher number of listings left.
