Owner?

The term "Owner" is confusing. I still don't know who it is referring to. Maybe replace this term with Website Owner, Member, Subscriber, etc.

"Owner" is confusing, since it's a WIP feature :)

Actually, it's already very powerful, so we didn't hide it in 1.0 :)

Use it only with numbers below 50 for forward compatibility.

Basically, it's "Owner of the gateway account".

It allows to specify the owner of the gateway account.

Then it allows to specify the owner of the plan.

Then when someone purchases a plan, it will propose the payment gateways corresponding to the owner.

By default all owners are 0 so it does work fine: all gateways/payment means are proposed for all plans.

Example usages:

- a given merchandise product should be paid to a given paypal account:
just create a payment gateway with owner id = 1 and do same for the plan.

- a given plan should be paid offline by bank transfer because of the higher cost:
put owner id = 1 to the offline gateway plan, and to plan. Plan will show that offline gateway, and the offline gateway won't be proposed as payment method for other plans with owner id = 0.

- separate account for donations

- resellers

- affiliates

- many more in future ;)

Hope that clarifies, and gives a small glimpse of the built-in possibilities as well ;)

Well, I kind of dreamt of this feature ;-)
Yet... with possibility to create 1 invoice per owner... otherwise my company information will be on every invoices even if it's other's companies plans.
