How to Pay for Year-Long WordPress Website Maintenance
WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that is widely used as a blogging platform. In this article, you will learn about the various methods available to you for paying for WordPress website maintenance.
One of the most popular methods of paying for WordPress maintenance is by paying for upgrades. Paid upgrades are only available for the popular versions of WordPress. If you are running an older version of the CMS, you will have to upgrade in order to continue receiving support from WordPress. Upgrading allows you to enjoy all the features that WordPress has to offer. When you upgrade, you are also given the option of choosing a paid plan or a free plan.
Paid upgrades are a great option for those who need frequent content management (blogging) or CMS (content management system) updates. Since these are often time-consuming tasks, you might want to consider paying for them rather than doing them manually.
Premium support is also a popular method of paying for WordPress website maintenance. With premium support, you are getting the benefits of direct communication with a WordPress expert via phone or via email. In addition to getting help with installation and configuration, you can also ask questions about blogging topics such as marketing, social media, and sales.
Premium support is better than regular support in that you are not limited to one or two questions per week. You can submit as many questions as you want without worrying about being asked the same questions repeatedly. Additionally, when you are using premium support, you are not billed for weekends or holidays since they are considered “business days” by the company serving you.
Fully Custom Plans
Fully custom plans are a great choice for those who want to pay for as many features as they can get. You can choose this type of plan if you know what you are doing and do not need any help from WordPress. In order to use all the features of the system, you will need to have experience with WordPress. If you have a WordPress website that you built a few years ago and have not maintained since then, you can consider this option since you will no longer need to worry about upgrading or maintaining the system. You can choose this type of plan if you are an experienced WordPress user and know exactly what features you need.
When you use fully custom plans, you are not limited to the question and answer sessions with a WordPress expert. You can also ask any type of question you want and get an immediate response. Since there are no limits as to how many questions you can ask, this can be a good option for those who are very technical and need help immediately.
Partial support is when you are not getting the benefits of premium support but are getting the benefits of human interaction via phone or via email. If you are using partial support, you can ask questions about basic WordPress usage such as installation and configuration. Additionally, you can ask for help with regularly scheduled tasks such as content distribution or checking for broken links.
Partial support is good for those who need help with regularly scheduled content distribution or checking for broken links. Since these tasks are often time-consuming, you might want to consider paying for them rather than doing them manually. Unfortunately, you cannot get the full benefits of a premium support plan with partial support.
Finally, we have free support. Just like premium support, free support is when you are not getting the benefits of a live chat or phone support but are still getting the benefits of a manual. Since you are getting the benefits of a manual, you do not need to have a credit card on file in order to get help. Additionally, the company providing you with free support will not charge you for weekends or holidays since they are considered “business days.”
Free support is perfect for those who want to try out the product but do not need any help with installation or configuration. You can also use this plan if you have built a small blog or portfolio website and want to keep it live but do not need any additional help beyond standard maintenance. You can get started for free by going to https://wordpress.com/get-started/ and following the instructions.
As you can see above, there are several different options for paying for WordPress maintenance. Each plan has its perks but also has its drawbacks. After you have decided which one you want to go with, it’s time to move on to the next step.
Step two: Decide on A Payment Method
Once you have paid for WordPress maintenance, it’s time to decide on a payment method. You have three options here: PayPal, Stripe, or GoFundMe. Since we have already gone over GoFundMe and Stripe, we will only discuss PayPal in this article.
You might consider PayPal since it is one of the most popular and well-known options out there. You can use your PayPal account to make a quick and simple payment. PayPal is also very easy to use for those who have never made a payment online before. Since PayPal stores your credit card information securely, you do not have to worry about whether or not your credit card information will be safe. Additionally, PayPal verifies your identity automatically so you do not have to worry about whether or not you will get a high-quality service.
If you run a business, you can also set up a business PayPal account. This account can be used just like your personal account and you do not need to worry about the fees or charges associated with your business. Simply make sure that your business email address is listed as the “primary” account holder in case you have to access your business account from a different device or browser.
Step three: Create Your Post-Paid Upgrades Plan
Once you have decided on a payment method, it’s time to create your post-paid upgrades plan. Just like with the previous step, you have several options here: you can create a free account or you can use your existing PayPal account. If you are creating a free account, you will not need to go through the initial set-up process again since PayPal will take care of it. However, when it comes time to make your first payment, you will have to go through the initial set-up process again.
Step four: Start Using The Product
Finally, it’s time to start using the product. Just log in to your account, visit the “Dashboard,” and you will see all the benefits of your new plan. If you are running a business, you can use the dashboard to manage your blog distribution as well. Simply click on the “+New Posts” tab located at the top of the page and all the content will be automatically distributed to your blog.
If you are happy with the results, it’s time to spread the word. You can click on the “Recommend” button located at the top of the page to recommend this product to your friends and followers.
WordPress is a free product but it is supported through advertisements as well as volunteers who help out with answering questions and using the product. In order to keep the product free, WordPress has a limited number of features available through the various paid plans. If you want all the features, you will need to upgrade your plan but you can get started for free by going to https://wordpress.com/get-started/.
