I wonder if this is possible. I’ve looked through the forum for this but didn’t see anything that corresponds to what I need.
– I have a few hundred people in my aWeber list, who got there by opting into a free offer I posted.
– I would like to grant them access to my site as “free” members so that they can view content for registered people only.
I COULD manually set up each user but as I have nearly 1000 people on my list… that would be a pain.
Is there are neat and clever way I could do this? And also – in the future, anyone opting in through the freebie form – can they also automatically be added?
Thanks for your help

Hi Paul, I don’t know what you were using for the opt-in but were you creating a WP User account for each of these users who were opting-in? If you did then you can simply import all those WP Users by going to the following interface in eMember:
WP eMember -> Members -> Import WP User
If you weren’t doing that then you could try the following option:
Create a WordPress page and use the shortcode mentioned on the following documentation. Then tell those users to go to this page and signup for a free account:
The other option would be to import them using a CSV file (I don’t know if you have a CSV file with all the users’s info though).
How are the users getting signed upto your AWeber list?July 1, 2013 at 10:49 am #56358
Thanks for that!
I have my squeeze connected to aWeber and it was done so that as long as they just get the freebie, they only stay in aWeber, but if they buy, via PayPal, they get signed up to eMember.
That works, but now that we changed our mind, I’ll have to import the freebie users through CSV, as you suggest, and for the future, get them to re-sign up as per the article you referred me to.
Thanks for your advice, it was very helpful!

Actually… one more question.
Is there a way to import directly from an aweber CSV?
At the moment, I could try to modify the CSV and import as WP users and THEN as import into eMember – but… maybe you guys have already thought of this?
thanks!!July 1, 2013 at 11:37 am #56360
And… can I set a temporary password for all imported users?July 2, 2013 at 12:27 am #56361wpCommerceModerator
Hi, there is no direct option to import users from aweber CSV. May be import as WP users first and then import to eMember from WP users.July 2, 2013 at 2:11 am #56362adminKeymaster
You can’t set a temporary password because emember saves the password in the database in an encrypted format (this is good for security). After the import, you can simply send all your members an email telling them to go to the login page and use the “forgot password” option to reset their password. Then they will be able to log in after that.July 2, 2013 at 2:18 pm #56363
Thanks a bunch!!
