See my reply to Kelvyn.

Two years ago I was webmaster for an organization sending out newsletters and posting them on the website. In the newsletter on paper by mail days, we only provided newsletters to members who paid their dues, with a grace month at the beginning of a new year. Then we began to send out the newsletter to everyone on the list by email, whether they renewed or not, and consequently there are a lot of people on the list who think they are members because they get the newsletter, but they have not paid. When the newsletter got to be 10 Mb because the editor used the wrong techniques, we sent out a link to a PDF instead. Now we are sending out an email with the newsletter text directly in the email without a lot of formatting, but we still send it to everyone on the list.

Maybe you could just send out a different link for each to the paid members, but would the paid members share the link with the unpaid members? You need a simple solution, not something too technical or requiring lots of maintenance. I hope my ideas help you to get that.
