Clicking the “Install” button will move the extension unde the ‘Installed Extensions’ heading and activate it for the site. Likewise, clicking the trash can () icon will uninstall the extension froom the site and move it back to the ‘Available Extensions’ heading.

Settings

This extension does not have any configuration options from the Portal. This extension functions via the site’s admin interface

Admin Interface

If the site is in Trial Site mode, the “Billing” option will become available in the site’s admin area, under the gear () icon in the top right of the screen. Your client will be able to see this when logging in to the site admin and initiate their own billing directly to Treepl CMS as well as activating the site and assign a custom domain name.

The activation process, and adding of the domain name, will follow the same process as documented in the Trial Site Activation steps.

If the site is already activated at the time you enable Direct Billing, please contact Treepl CMS support in order to reset the current billing arrangement and enable a new billing subscription set up by the client via the Direct Billing process.

The billing page accessible to your client from the admin will look like the below, allowing them to select their desired billing period (annual or monthly) along with their billing details (for invoice generation purposes - which will be sent to the purchaser).

If your reseller level permits, you will also be able to set your commission amounts, whereby your direct billing client will see only your custom pricing and you’ll be paid your commission amount. See how to set your Commission amounts here.

Miscellaneous

When Direct Billing is enabled, site subscription renewal notifications will be emailed to the purchaser's contact details provided during the billing set up.

The renewal notification email will look like the below:
