In the process of developing a membership site that will filter content based on the member’s country (their address is required on sign-up), is it possible to have the membership level auto-selected / determined by the country choice in the registration form?June 3, 2014 at 12:55 pm #63472
You mean, if I am American, I automatically get one membership level; and if I’m Canadian, I automatically get put into another?June 3, 2014 at 3:01 pm #63473FranczVMember
Exactly, we require a single sign-up form that would enable the registrant (signing up for a free membership) to automatically be inserted into the correct user group that would define which content they had rights to access. We’ve used the registration form per user level solution at present, but due to the amount of pages required to create a dedicated registration for each, this is rather prohibitive.June 3, 2014 at 11:29 pm #63474
If you don’t mind rolling up your sleeves; there is an API that can help you do this:June 4, 2014 at 2:17 am #63475adminKeymaster
Another way to go about it is to have two separate pages that contains the registration form of the two different levels. The following page tells you how to do this:
Now, you just need to implement a solution to send/re-direct visitors to the appropriate registration form page based on their country.July 29, 2014 at 11:33 am #63476ramonaParticipant
I have a similiar question: In January 2015 our German law will change. If there are paying members from other counrtries than from Germany, we must handle tax in anthother way (much complicated). So I like to give access only to German users. Really stupid, but I MUST …
I use the PayPal button as payment gateway. Maybe with eStore I could handle it, but this plugin also is not conform with German law.
In the meantime a colleague has built a solution for me, see [http://www.hapke-media.com/mitglied-werden] (become a member page).July 29, 2014 at 1:14 pm #63477
PayPal has a way to block payments from countries you don’t want to do business with. Under the “Fraud Management Filters,” you want to block every country except your own from making payments.
FYI – The page your shared gives a 404 error.August 5, 2014 at 8:50 am #63478ramonaParticipant
