I am working on a site that will have several courses that users can subscribe to. User’s need to be able to sign up for different courses independently. The wp-member plugin allows for this (http://wp-member.com/), but I chose your plugin because it does not interfere with the registration process like their plugin. Is there any way to allow members to have more than one membership level at a time?November 18, 2009 at 2:43 am #16103
Hi Gregeland, yeah a member can signup for as many membership levels as they want (they will have unique username and password set for each membership levels).
Edit: This functionality has changed. You can use the multiple membership level per user feature for this:

Do they have to have a unique email as well?November 18, 2009 at 4:53 pm #16105November 18, 2009 at 10:07 pm #16106
Nope they don’t have to use different email address. Everytime a member signs up for a different membership level a separate new member account is created. It acts as if this was another person signing up.November 21, 2009 at 5:12 pm #16107
I’ve got a related pre-sale question. here is my setup:
I want to sell a magazine and I think I need 3 memebrship levels:
a) digital subscriber, reads the magazin online i.e. 20bucks
b) paper subscriber gets it delivered via postal service i.e. 20bucks
c) gets both issues digital and paper i.e. 30bucks
I think multiple memberships are never needed so is it possible for the subscribers to switch memberships?
What if a digital subscriber wants to sign up and pay for a paper copy too?
Any feasible solutions for this?November 21, 2009 at 10:31 pm #16108
@Ovidiu, you only need one membership level for the whole thing which is the “Digital Subscriber”. Members who sign up for this gets to read the protected content (digital version of the magazine) on your site.
You can simply create a subscription button for the payment of the paper version. The following post explains how you can create any type of subscription button with the WP eStore plugin:
How to Add/Create a Subscription Button for Recurring Payment
when someone orders a paper version using this button they get the paper version delivered (weeky, monthly, yearly or whatever) as long as they stay subscribed. No need for any membership for them cause they will never need to read anything online.
If a digital subscriber want to get the paper version delivered too then they just have to pay for the paper version using this subscription button. No need for another membership level since they can already read the digital version.
let me know if this makes sense.November 22, 2009 at 4:17 pm #16109
sounds good. will read the link you gave, meanwhile maybe you can elaborate a little how free memberships interact with the paid ones?
just curios how this works:
I want to offer a free memebrship too, cause then I’ll built a memberbase for i.e. newsletters.
For the free memebrships, do Ineed to enable: anyone can register inside wordpress or does your free membership setting work without the enabled registration?
Just wantin to make sure I udnerstand the product before buying and setting up…November 22, 2009 at 10:56 pm #16110
A free membership is the same as any other membership… the only difference is that the visitor doesn’t have to pay to become a free member and access the protected content that is available to this membership level.
For paid membership one will have to make a payment for the membership and then become a member whereas for the free membership one can simply register by filling in a member registration form.
The membership demo site has a good example. Have a look at the “Join Us” page from the following link:
A common practice is that you make your good stuff available to the free members but make the really really good stuff available only to your paid members.November 23, 2009 at 11:16 am #16111
can I enable registration on this site so I will also have a base of people registered?
I need normal wp registration cause I am going to run contest, etc and I need people to be registered.
The ones with the paid membership will then additionally see the current issue of our magazine.
