A friend wants to build a site about comics. It has a list of series. A series has a list of chapters (displayed from PDF files). The first 3 chapters are free and the rest are not. A user can register and buy coins via Stripe or PayPal to unlock the non-free chapters to read. What is a good nocode tool to build this? Webflow, Wix, bubble, noodl, WordPress, etc? Is bubble a very good choice for this? There will also be an admin site to manage users, series, upload chapters, etc.
The site is not a membership site. It is a “credit” site. You pay for a number of credits. You use the credits to “pay” for access of the non-free content on the site. It is a pay-to-view via credit. The category/products, i.e. series/chapters, are not standard ecommerce relationships.
To add to the conversation: also yes.
Hey @net-tt! As others have agreed, you can definitely do that in Bubble!
And to expand further, there are bubble plugins that can help you develop the payment feature you touched on.
For example, Bubble has a free Stripe plugin that you can use to allow users to purchase coins with Stripe, and to install this free plugin, simply go to the Bubble editor, then click on Plugins > Add plugins > Type “stripe” in the search box > Install the 1st plugin on the list (hint: you’ll see that it’s the one developed by Bubble).
You may also check Bubble’s documentation about how to set up and use this plugin.
And since it seems that you may be new to Bubble, it may be helpful to check out some courses on how to use it to build apps, such as this video playlist from Bubble, or the “Beginners Course” from Zeroqode.
I hope that helps!
