Outpost works only with Ghost, which we think is the best platform for building a subscription-based, notification-driven website. If you are on a different platform, like WordPress, and are interested in moving over to Ghost, we recommend reaching out to the good folks at Ghost via a concierge. This also goes for switching from Patreon to Ghost, or switching from Substack to Ghost.
If you just want to chat about the process of switching and the benefits, feel free to drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order for us to create a tip button and do member management, you need to have your Ghost site connected to an active Stripe account. You should have membership turned on, and at least one paid tier set up if you want to use the full capabilities of the Autoresponder. You do not have to charge for your site in order to use Outpost, just have a tier set up.
If you are hosted on GhostPro, you need to be on a plan that allows for custom integrations, which is currently the Creator plan and above.
