Using the plugin

Paid Claims is a plugin that allows you to monetize the claim ownership form. Before submitting the claim all claimants will have to pay a price that you set. Before using the Paid Claims add-on you should learn as much as you can about the existing claim ownership functionality. Please open the Directory theme guide for more information about claim ownership.



There is only one thing you must do before using the Paid Claims add-on. You must enable the claim ownership functionality. Do this from wp-admin ⇨ Tevolution ⇨ Settings ⇨ Claim Ownership (tab). Simply select the post types for which you want claim ownership enabled.


Managing submitted claims

All claims submitted using the claim ownership form can be managed from Tevolution ⇨ Submitted Claims. From this section you can read claim details and of course approve or deny a claim.

Payments for ownership claims can be reviewed from Tevolution ⇨ Transactions. Claim ownership payments will have a “Claimed Ownership” value inside the “Price Package” column. When you see that a claim has been paid for navigate to Tevolution ⇨ Submitted Claims to review/verify the claim.
