Server setup using Ubuntu for SSH account hosting for socks proxy?

I have a few friends that have seen me bypass firewalls with a socks proxy (SSH). I explained on how it works and how secure it is for browsing the Internet and checking your email in public places. I had at least 6 asked me if I could set up an account on my server for them and they would pay me! Now what I wanted to know was how I can set this up in a server and website where they can register an account and pay me through PayPal! I don't need help setting up the site! Just on how to set up the server to automate this. What tools are needed (ex. ISPConfig, jailkit.... stuff like that?) I don't mind doing this manually but if I get more people that would like this I don't really want to do every single one.

Any help pointing me in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.
