I have a website with one single movie to rent. I'm hosting the movie on my server, same server as Magento 2. What I want to know if there is a module that would allow me to rent out the movie? I'm thinking of a private page to like members only?
I know how to create Product Type Video and how to configure Youtube/Vimeo plus generate an API key. However what I'm looking for is for a way to host my movie on my own server and rent it out to customers.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
If you're already up and running with Magento 2, and trying to turn the site into a movie rental site, here are a couple of ideas that could help:
1) A Membership Extension
This will let you sell a product that starts at the time of purchase, and ends at a fixed date. Ideally, the extension will put users into a unique Customer Group (See: https://docs.magento.com/user-guide/customers/customer-groups.html) for the duration of their membership (ie. the "rental" period).
Here are examples of membership extensions that you could look at:
2) CMS Page Restriction Extension:
You could have the video embedded into a particular page in the site that's only available to shoppers that are in a particular Customer Group.
Hopefully, this at least gives you some ideas to consider as you identify the right solution for your particular website.
Best of luck!
You gave me the information I needed and you pointed me to the right direction.
I have my movie on my server and I just needed the information you gave me to get going.
I'm going to get this started and let you know the results.
