Am wondering if it’s possible to do the following:
– Display a registration form with a DIFFERENT default membership level
So, normally you’ll see “FREE” membership here when using the [wp_eMember_registration] shortcode.
But what if I want to sign up, say, affiliates? I thought I’d make a page encouraging Affiliates to sign up and then display a signup form for them. But – at the moment the form says “membership: FREE”.
Is this possible? And how would I go about the whole process?
Thanks for your help!!

Hi there. We are using the eStore, eMember, and eAffiliate software and have a registration problem. We offer a subscription service for our members so we are using the Subscribe button right now. The problem is that the member has to pay before registering for our site membership. People are trying to subscribe for more than one membership product as a different member (like for their husband, or wife, of child, or friend and pay for them with the same PayPal). But after they use the same email address in PayPal for another subscription, the system thinks it is the same person and does not send them another registration link to let them create a second membership, instead it changes their original subscription and sets up two recurring billings.
I think if they had to create a registration before going to the PayPal site, then they could register more than one subscription. From reading the documentation and other posts, it appears that the only way to do this is with a shopping cart, which doesn’t allow for monthly subscriptions (or does it?) Can we set up a shopping cart and only allow the quantity to be 1. Then that way after they set up the first subscription they could come in and create a second or third subscription, or so on with a different name and info, but then use the same email in PayPal? Someone mentioned that you can do a subscription with the shopping cart if you have a PayPal merchant account, is this true? Thanks for your help, and we LOVE this product!!August 5, 2012 at 12:06 am #42292
Did you create the subscription buttons using WP eStore plugin or are you using the direct PayPal button integration option?August 5, 2012 at 5:35 pm #42293
I am using this shortcode: [wp_eStore_subscribe_fancy id=x]
I am also using the “PayPal Payment Gateway” in the eSore.August 6, 2012 at 12:09 am #42294
Okay good. In that case we are going to use the signup scenario 3 which should help:
So the idea is to make sure that a user is registered and logged into eMember on the sie before he/she can pay using that subscription button. When a user is logged into eMember and then this user makes a payment via eStore, the plugin won’t try to match their PayPal email address as it normally does. It will simply apply the transaction to whoever is logged into the site.
You can use eMember’s section protection feature to protect the “Subscription” payment buttons so that only logged in members can interact with the button and make payments (this will guarantee that a user will always be logged in before paying):
Let me know how you go with that.August 9, 2012 at 7:35 am #42295
Okay, I understand what you are saying, the only issue is that I don’t see any way to show my fancy subscription button with the picture and description and only hide the “Subscribe” button itself. If I hide the fancy button then nothing at all will show up on my http://www.myzeekmanager.com/join-now page… Any suggestions?August 10, 2012 at 12:52 am #42296
There is also the following option if you are using eStore and eMember together.
Use the following shortcode to place your fancy displays and it will make sure that only members can use the buy/subscribe button:
[wp_eStore_fancy_display id=1 type=3 style=1 restriction=1]
The restriction=1 parameter will tell it to restrict the button for members only. This shortcode comes from the extra eStore shortcode plugin. Check the extra eStore shortcode plugin for full details and usage of this shortcode:August 10, 2012 at 7:57 am #42297
Okay, I think that did it! Thanks for your help!
