Just to understand you correctly, what you are trying to achieve is that you want to allow members that purchased a certain plan to be able to access a specific category, dedicated only for members with that specific plan?
You can use private categories for this. BE AWARE, however, that notifications DO NOT WORK for private categories (And I can get no time estimate from the Wix team here as to when notifications will be added for private categories — they ignore my requests when I ask). It’s been hell trying to use the private categories.
Hi, @marinehavel, that sounds promising!
You can decide to open a category up to everyone, just members/ just specific members/ members with roles/ badges or members with subscriptions.
If you already have set the subscription plans, they will appear in the categories management sidebar, so you will simply connect them with private categories. If you do not have set subscription plans yet - you'll be able to do so.
Look to the image below ( the sidebar appears when choosing ''manage categories'' option under the 3 dots of any category when in live site).
Regarding to notifications of private categories that @Robin Griggs Wood mentioned- at the moment, we cannot promise the release date. What is known - it might take up to a few months and will be definitely announced in this forum.
And for the end - let us know if private categories assisted you well and if you have any insights about managing members' access to private categories.
We've been constantly improving Wix Forums and your voices are very important to us!

P.s. let me know if you succeeded with setting permissions to your memberships.
I’m very sad to hear that, @Greta Galubauskaitė ... because the private categories and new “paid members only” option are both unusable until notifications are enabled for private categories. We just tested the private categories with a class on my website, but the users complained constantly about the lack of notifications (and I lost some members as a result ... 😥...). They can always check constantly on their own posts (a nuisance), but without notifications, they have no idea if someone has communicated to them on another post.
Any chance you can put a gentle nudge to the dev team to bring those about sooner? ... you’d be my hero! ... 😁
We understand the importance of the feature and we’re really moving as fast as we can.( P.s. I forwarded your message to the team and indeed, I instantly felt a hero at least a bit :D )
