What is the best way to have a directory site have upgraded (paid) profile pages with extra fields that they can fill in to make their profile stand out?

I want them to be in the same CPT, just have extra fields like a photo if they upgrade.

Hello,

How do you setup the photo? if it is a custom user field, you can setup a Toolset form for editing user, put the photo user field into the user form for user to upload their images.

See our document:

I'm sorry. You misunderstood when I said profile. Forget that terminology.

I will restart: When a user submits a front end form, it creates a CPT page. I am styling this with a Content Template. How do I create an upgraded version of that same page with more fields for the user to fill out when the make a purchase to upgrade their page?

You can try these:
1) Setup some custom fields to your custom post type:

2) create another Toolset form for editing post: in this form, provide more more fields for the user to input
