Can I Have a Plan with No Payment Gate?

Yes, you can!

You may want to offer a Plan that has no payment language or checkout process associated with it. 

This may be a good option for you if you are taking payments with an external payment tool and want to provide access to your Network or Spaces after a member has purchased off platform. 

You may also want to bundle Spaces together and offer access to them with a simple link and no payment language or checkout process.
