thanks a lot for looking into this! Steady is getting quite big in Germany at the moment and we (https://1e9.community) would love to use it for our paid membership model - which will be an important part of our overall business model.
As you said, we’d use Steady very similar to the available Patreon plugin, i.e. integrating it directly into Discourse, so that Users can
- choose between different tiers directly on our Discourse site
- choose a payment time frame / method
and so get access to one or more Discourse groups which have access to different categories (It would be nice, if you could assign more then one group to a user, eg “Paying Members” and “Premium tier”.)
Also, it would be great, if the payment notifications (re renewal, payment failure etc. or even invoices) would make use of Discourse pms, so that the whole payment process is neatly integrated and makes for a seamless ux.
We currently don’t have any developer ressources ourselves, but would love to get involved in the development process, if help is needed.
