How to build a membership site with Notion, Super.so, and Outseta
Do you love Notion? Yea, you and a lot of other people. But good news—whether you just have a Notion document that you want to charge for access to, or you've built out an entire website on Notion you can easily transform your Notion site into a full-fledged membership website using Super.so and Outseta. This guide will walk you through that process step-by-step.
If you have a Notion site, you likely already know that one of the limitations of Notion is that you can't add embed scripts to your website pages—unless you also user Super.so, a tool that allows you to add embed scripts to you Notion site.
You'll need to open Outseta's sign-up, login, and profile embeds as pop-ups.
You'll need to make one minor update to Outseta's Quick Start embed script by adding a line that says monitorDom: true.
1. Add sign-up, login, profile, and logout links or buttons to your Notion pages. Link those links or buttons to the corresponding pop-up links you'll find at the bottom of the AUTH > EMBEDS page.
2. PUBLISH your site changes—these buttons or links will now open Outseta's embeds as pop-ups when clicked.
Set up your protected content
Follow the steps outlined below to set up your protected content. Using this method, you can have pages or folders of content that are only accessible to members who have logged in based on their membership plan.
1. Click AUTH > PROTECTED CONTENT from the left hand side bar.
2. Click ADD PROTECTED CONTENT to begin setting up you content restrictions.
3. Add a Name that describes the content and who will have access to it.
4. Add Hidden URLs—these are the pages and folders that will be protected. Choose the "Starts with" option to protect an entire folder of content or "Equals" to protect a specific page of content.
5. You can also setup a Access Denied URL. This is where we'll redirect users who try to access protected content without the appropriate permissions based on their membership level or if they haven't logged in (authenticated).
6. Start typing to choose which of your membership plans have access to your protected content.
7. Click SAVE. Your content is now restricted based on the membership restrictions that you setup.
