Fist of all sorry for my english as it’s not my native language.
I build a website for a customer, and he wants to sell ebooks, his services and hide part of his website for premium users.
I am rookie on your plugins and maybe i ask a question already answered on your forums.
I use the subscription feature as trick to give a chance to customers to pay in 3 times a product.
IE: Customer can pay for a 3 months lessons in one time or in 3 times.
I import two buttons on the product page: [wp_eStore_subscribe:product_id:XXX:end] for recurring and [wp_eStore:product_id:xxx:end] for one time payment
I want to know if it’s possible to put this reccuring(subscription) order in the cart like the normal product button? Because customers may want to add others things in their cart before checkout (like ebooks).

i use this thread to ask you another question:
If i have variations with subscription, no problem to add several prices as values?
– first variation : 3 months (pay in 3 times)
– second variation: 6 months (pay in 3 times) + 88 dollars for this variation.
Is the extra variation value(here 88 dollars) is add for each month on recurring payment process?

Hi, The PayPal subscription can’t be added to the cart because it goes through a different API on Paypal site. It is perfectly okay to have a “Buy Now” button or “Add to cart” button for one time purchase option or a subscription button for a *pay in 3 payments* option on your landing page. The customers will click on the option that they want to take.
You can have variation to offer different price amounts but if you are going to use different time period then create a new eStore product for it. So create one eStore product for the 3 months payment and one for the 6 months payment then put buttons both options on your landing page.September 15, 2013 at 10:51 am #57262
Thanks for your reply, i have another question regarding the subscription process.
Actually, if a non registrated user click on buying a subscription, the system will bring him directly to paypal (on the contrary of “add to cart” who have the option to force the user to be login to checkout). I need to know if it’s possible to force the user to register before buying a subscription, because my client (personnal trainer) must deal with lots of users and don’t want to manage manually all the registrations process after payments.
Of course i can add a conditionnal behaviour on each product page to tell wordpress to show subscription button only for registrated users but if you have easier solutions you’re welcome
Thanks you for your supportSeptember 16, 2013 at 12:25 am #57263PeterMember
Are you also using the eMember plugin with eStore?
If so, you can automate the registration process with the subscription purchase event:
You can also use partial content protection feature to only hide the subscription button (so only your logged in users can see and interact with the subscription button):September 17, 2013 at 1:03 am #57264
Thanks you for the idea.
Well i will try to explain as much as possible because english is not my native language.
My client have a website who contain a free blog. Everybody can access to it and it need to be register (as free account) to post a comment on article.
In the same time, he sell digitals products (like ebook and services) and want to sell membership to a premium blog section. With another plugin he will manage his customers thrue a unique private area for each of them (and it work with the basic wordpress user roles)
I don’t know where to start due to several questions and possible scenarios
– Let say a user create a free account before buying a ebook, then want to subscribe to the premium blog section. How the system will work after the paypal payment? Will it send an email with a link to create a new account like the normal process see here http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/wordpress-membership/wp-emember-and-wp-estore-integration-for-membership-payment-60#!prettyPhoto (1.44min) ? or does emember will recognize that the buyer is already login and don’t generate a link to create a new one?
– Can i completly override the wordpress basic inscription (wp-login ?) and hide it in the same time and just use the emember registration process for free and premium membership?
Hope you catch my text because it’s a bit hard to explain in english
