Thank you for the explanation. I will probably use a third-party database (firebase) for payments.

When your nodebb starts instead of loading your plugin settings from the database you would read it from the file.

I was originally thinking I could edit the function of the upload/edit buttons and check if the person has the required permissions; but I cannot seem to find where their functionality is actually defined.
