I have installed recent versions of eMember, eStore, and Affiliate.
My application calls for a couple of things I’m not seeing in eMember documentation & forums. I wanted to check with you on these…
I have six membership levels – 3 with one-time payment, 3 with subscription option.
Each member can have an unlimited number and combination of memberships and/or membership types. For each membership we need to track a physical address.
So, for instance,
- Member 1 has two membership level A, each with a unique address.
- Member 2 has a membership level A with one address, and a membership level B with a different address.
- Member 3 has four membership level A with four different addresses, and two membership level B with two different addresses.
Is there any hope for me? (puh-lease?)June 15, 2013 at 5:28 am #56169
I am not really sure how the address ties in with the membership level? Membership level is used to apply permission (to define what content will be accessible for that level). The address is for the user/member and is attached to the users profile. A member can edit their profile and enter their physical address (given you want this and have enabled it in the settings).
Can you please explain your application so I have a better understanding of what you are trying to do?June 17, 2013 at 11:05 pm #56170
The application provides a remote energetic charging service that is unique to a physical address. Protecting content is not a consideration here. The different address types (home, work, non-profit) each have a different cost associated with them.
1 Home address, 1-year prepay
2 Work address, 1-year prepay
3 Non-profit address, 1-year prepay
4 Home address, ongoing subscription
5 Work address, ongoing subscription
6 Non-profit address, ongoing subscription
It’s possible that one member would want to charge his home address and his business address, for example. Or, his home and vacation home.
After reviewing your database structure, I see that the custom fields occupy a table separate from the member table, and appear to be 1:1 to the member table. It would seem that our app would require a 1:M relationship between member & custom fields… and some additional logic to provide “modify profile” or “cancellation” transactions among several individual address records.

perhaps that will give a better idea than what I’m able to explain here.
Thanks for your help!June 19, 2013 at 12:59 am #56171
Thank you for the details. I see what you mean. It is a little tricky scenario that I am not sure how to handle.
I am going to suggest one method that might work.
Instead of using the additional membership level approach, create a bunch of membership levels like the following:
1) Home Address
2) Home and Work address
3) Home and Non-profit address
4) Home and Work and Non-profile address
and so on….
You will end up with a bunch of membership levels but that way each user will only need to be in ONE membership level (giving you that 1:1 relationship).
Combine that with our form builder addon (to create very customized user profile fields for each membership level) might do the job:June 19, 2013 at 4:42 pm #56172
Thanks for your creativity! And the formbuilder addon looks pretty sweet!
I’m afraid this won’t work for this client though. They need the option to have the client add/change/delete addresses at any time. So, for instance, they might subscribe for a home address today, then a month later decide to subscribe their work… three months later drop the home address and add a vacation home. So the membership records really need to be 1:M with the member record… and, in thinking about it more, the “Active/Inactive” status on the member record would need to be derived from whether or not there are any active memberships.
Is this something you would consider as a customization? Love your software, documentation, and response time! If it’s possible, I’d much rather consider customization than looking for another solution….

Okay.. I can’t see a clear or better way to handle this scenario but we can discuss this a little to see if something can be done. You can use this form to get in touch:August 6, 2013 at 2:54 pm #56174
Hi, I submitted a request for custom work about a month ago, and never heard a response back. Still interested in this feature… can you suggest how I can get a response? Thanks.August 7, 2013 at 7:53 am #56175
I didn’t get any submission from you. Can you please resubmit now?
