- Log in to the Admin Panel, go to Financial->Packages and edit your packages.
- Visit the Set Limit tab and increase the images limit under the module (e.g. Products, Blogs, Events, etc.) column (should be greater than 1) to enable the Add Photo option.

Pay As You Go

Pay-As-You-Go is a system in which a user pays for the costs of a specific module when they occur rather than before or afterward.

If you want to enable Pay As You Go as the only option, then you must set a price for the module, 0 means it will depend on the Set Limit tab settings. If a module is disabled under the Set Limit tab and the Pay As You Go price for the module is also set to 0 then the icon will not be displayed.

Set Limit tab - The Limits under this tab are included in the package price. For instance, a PLATINUM package has a limit of 10 for Listings, this means a user who subscribed to the PLATINUM package can add 10 Listings without any additional cost. If you set an amount (e.g. $10) for the listings under the Pay As You Go tab then the user can add an additional listing by paying the specified cost ($10/Listing).


Let's say that in the PLATINUM want to set up as a combination of included & Pay As You Go as following:

  • 3 Listings included
  • Events - Pay As You Go
  • Deals - Pay As You Go
  • Blogs - Pay As You Go
  • 3 Properties included
  • Go to Financial->Packages and edit the PLATINUM package.
  • Click the Set Limit tab and change the Listings and Properties Limit dropdown to 3
  • Change the Events, Deals, and Blogs Limit dropdown to Disabled. Disabled means that the user can add an Event/Deal/Blog only by paying the PYG cost defined under the Pay As You Go tab.
  • Go to Pay As You Go tab and enter the price. If you want to allow a user to add more than 3 listings, add a price for the Listing else keep it 0.

    The user can add three listings without any cost, after 3 listings, the user will be redirected to the checkout page.

The user can add only three listings as defined under the Set Limit tab. All the limits defined under the Set Limit tab are included in the Package Price.

Similarly, you can set the price for other modules.
