To get started, create new Groups and make sure that they are the Closed group type and click the "Paid" checkbox when creating the group.
Make sure to note the Group ID, which is displayed at the top of the Group details in the admin Control Center.
 
Next, we go to Paywalls in the top navigation of your Control Center and create a new Paywall with the "Group" type.
 
On the Paywall page for your newly created Paywall, you should see an "Add Product" button.
 
Click Add Product, input the product's Name, Description. You can choose to make the product Hidden (only accessibly by Admins), or check "Default", which makes the product the default product selected on your paywall.
 
Click "Active" to make this product available to customers.
 
Upload your Art and Media graphics - details below:
