Fence Subscriptions
View this hack »

An Eigg Box hack where the idea was to build the simplest possible way to set up a paid subscription service for Fence records (and eventually Eigg Box itself).

How it works:

  • Authenticate the user as a real person with an email account (using Mozilla Persona, which is brilliant)
  • Ask them to set up a direct debit via GoCardless
  • Confirm the direct debit
  • Let the user download some stuff via Dropbox

Eventually there’d be an admin system and lots more features, but we’re going to test this out initially and see if folk are interested in subscribing to exclusive content - it’s a “1000 true fans” system.
