Hi, I’ve searched but I can’t find anything that addresses my particular issue (and it’s not easy to explain, so please bear with me).
My site sells memberships + online products and services. The basic membership choices are as follows…
- Basic, free membership, giving access to unprotected areas and forum
- 2nd tier, paid upfront membership, giving access to educational content and forum
- 3rd tier, subscription membership, giving access to educational content and forum
- Paid upfront private coaching service, to which I’d like to automatically bestow 2nd tier membership status
It is this last one that I have an issue with. How can this be done?
Really grateful for advice. Thanks…August 4, 2014 at 1:43 pm #64725wzpModerator
You essentially have 4 membership levels, of which the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th have common access to protected pages; and only the 4th has access to some extra pages potentially. When protecting your content, you can give access to various levels for that content.
You would create 3 estore products and hook it to your 3 membership levels (for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th levels):August 4, 2014 at 11:37 pm #64726
Thanks, I understand the process for protecting particular posts but it still doesn’t address my issue because I can’t page-protect a service.
In eStore, I have a products/services page. All products (except for one) are sold individually with no membership rights, however I want the private coaching service to be sold with membership included.
This is the part that I don’t understand. Sorry, I may be missing something, but from what I can make out, currently I have to provide membership status, and THEN these members can access the coaching service. But I need it to work the other way around. If someone was to buy the coaching service, they would automatically receive free membership to the 2nd tier.
It needs to be set up like this because all services are currently sold as stand-alones without membership status. Memberships, on the other hand, do not include coaching products. With the exception of the most expensive service, these coaching services must be purchased separately to memberships. I want to attract potential buyers to take the top coaching service because it would include full site membership.
- Basic Membership = $0
- 2nd tier Membership = $1
- Coaching A = $2 (no membership)
- Coaching B = $3 (no membership)
- Coaching C = $10 (includes 2nd tier and Basic Membership)
So, when somebody selects and pays for Coaching C from the eStore products page, they are granted full membership. I hope this makes sense, because it has me stumped.
Thank you again for your earlier response.August 5, 2014 at 12:52 am #64727adminKeymaster
Do the following:
1) Create a membership level called “Coaching C” (you can give it a different name if you want to).
2) Change your content protection so this “Coaching C” level has access to all basic membership and 2nd tier membership material.
3) Now, create an eStore product called “Coaching C” for $10. Hook your coaching c membership level to this product.
4) A user is paying you $10 to buy the “Coacing C” product. In the process they will also get access to the coaching c level (which gives them access to basic and 2nd tier content).
Does that work for you?August 5, 2014 at 3:42 am #64728
That sounds good, many thanks. I’ll get that done today and post my result.
