I created a specific membership level with a trial period, and then made it a product in eStore. My client is afraid the some users will quit the process before registering, when presented with the Paypal screen. The way your system is currently setup is: Click purchase -> make Paypal payment -> receive registration email -> register -> login.
My client wants to change the order of this process to:
Click purchase -> register -> make Paypal payment -> login. That way client can still grow their Mailchimp list even if users bounce after being taken to Paypal. Is there a way to do this?
Or, is there simply a way to force all potential registered users to the registration page first (and add them to the mailing list), then let them choose their membership level, and then finally be taken to the Paypal payment processing?July 23, 2012 at 3:30 am #47621adminKeymaster
Yes, there is an option to do what you are after (users must register first before making payment). Please study the following documentation which will explain how you can customize the standard registration flow:July 23, 2012 at 3:46 am #47622
Fantastic. I’ll check this out when I’m fresh in the morning- thanks for the point in the right direction.July 23, 2012 at 8:32 pm #47623
Ok, read thru it, everything makes sense. I want to set up a Member Signup Scenario 2. Is there a step-by-step for doing this?July 24, 2012 at 2:26 am #47624
Ahh- it’s only this?
To make WP eStore not let anyone continute to checkout unless they are logged in you simply have to check the “Only Logged In Members Can Checkout” field in the “AddOn Settings” tab of the WP eStore pluginJuly 24, 2012 at 3:34 am #47625
OK I checked “Only Logged In Members Can Checkout” field in the “AddOn Settings” tab of the WP eStore plugin, and it works for the cart, i.e. redirects anonymous users to a page I made called “register first,” however, it doesn’t seem to effect the behavior of my subscribe now buttons, which is what my client really wants. She basically wants *all* users making transactions (from cart, wp_eStore_subscribe shortcode, buy now buttons) to have to be registered first.
What do I do?July 24, 2012 at 5:39 am #47626adminKeymaster
Place the subscription button inside a section protected area so anonymous users can’t see it until they log in:July 25, 2012 at 12:54 am #47627
Bingo- thank you.
