To me the members/affiliates integration is great. It seems you’ve built what the previous posts were asking for, right into the plugins. It would be nice if there was a setting that allowed only certain levels of members to be registered as affiliates. I’d rather not have all member’s get an affiliate account, especially since I’m offering a 1-week limited trial.
My question is different, but related, so I’ll just post in this thread. I can’t figure out integration between eMember and eStore. Unlike the eMember/Affiliate options, I find nothing that ties together the registration process for eMember, and the purchase process for eStore.
I would like to have a single “Buy Now” button (there’s only one product for now) that allows them to purchase a 1-time, 6-month eMembership. How is the best way to go about this? If I just have them purchase a product, then how do I link that customer/purchase to an eMember account? Do I hide the registration page as if it were a pay-per-view item? If so, can I have 2 different registration pages, 1 for the free-trial members and 1 (hidden) for paying customers?
Unless I missed something that makes this process simpler than what I described above (which makes them input their information twice, once to purchase through eStore & once to become an eMember), you might consider further integration of the 2 plugins in the future. Such that the user can input their personal and purchase information all in at once, & it sends that info to Paypal to pay for the subscription, & also to eMember–setting up their new account which will expire at a certain time unless renewed, or if subscription payments stop.
