    Question: When a user chooses a subscription and pays thru chargebee how do you determine what access they have?

    How did you then develop the mobile apps? Can users rate studios and vice versa? How much coding knowledge do you have?

    How were you able to integrate sharetribe with wordpress? I've been fiddling with it for a while now but I can't seem to figure it out…

    This is awesome man. Do you have any further walkthroughs how you were able to integrate your WordPress landing page and Sharetribe? I noticed the footers are the same. I just learned HTML and CSS, so I'm wondering how I can use the custom script in sharetribe to lower the radius of the buttons.

  7. What was your average cost per month, on the platform plus these plugins and what problems did you have to overcome ?
    how did you solve these problems ?

    Hi Mike, thank you for sharing your knowledge. Which hosting provider did you choose for WordPress and what theme did you use to integrate with sharetribe? Do you have some further info or link that you can provide into this integration component? Thank you.

    how did you match the subscription setting done with chargebee and sync them with sharetribe ?

    Thanks for this. Couple Qs – how does Slack notify you when someone has subscribed but not created a listing? And can you redo this video for your use with Flex? Cheers (from down under Aus)
