Greetings! Is it possible to make muut accessible only for paying customers, but having the forum on read-only for non-payers? People that want to write, must pay. Those who won’t pay, should be able to read-only. Is that possible? Thank you.

That is totally doable. If you set up Muut with [Federated ID](https://learn.muut.com/federated-id/manual-setup) you can restrict who gets to have an account on your end. And since an account is required to post on Muut preventing participation behind a paywall is as simple as requiring payment to create one of your FedID accounts

Hello Monica! Thank you for the quick response. The problem is that we do not own the database. We have approximately 4500 people that will have to come from facebook. To enter the forum, they must sign in via facebook and link their accounts to muut. How can we control a paywall here? Thank you!
