I Need Members to be able to register with the same email address for a different membership type.
Right now, I am not able to do this.
How can I set this up?
I have enabled “Secondary Membership” but again, I need them to register with the same email address for the other memberships.
I am also using the email address confirmation shortcode.

When a user “registers,” it is for when they are not in the system at ANY level. Once a member is registered; you should just give them the opportunity to upgrade or purchase, or manually assign them, to additional membership levels.January 30, 2017 at 12:16 am #75050
Think of a membership account as the same as having a gmail/hotmail/yahoo account. You can’t create multiple different accounts with that same email (Just like you can’t create multiple gmail account with the same email address).
Each email account gives you a unique identity of a membership account. You can then apply different permissions to that account. We use the concept of membership level to apply permissions to an account. You can apply one or more membership levels to an account.
Read the following documentation to learn how the multiple level per user feature work:January 30, 2017 at 8:31 am #75051
Okay, well how can I AUTOMATICALLY add them to another membership?
I tried doing it with a download now button from a free product created in eStore – that didn’t work.
I need it to automatic – not manual.
Can this be a custom fix?January 30, 2017 at 8:35 am #75052
I should also say that for this case, a member is subscribing to some info that I will give access to in the members area. I prefer NOT to give a download, just access to the page after subscribing (and access to that member level).
I already have a very nice light box form I use with my landing page creator. I just need them to have that member access automatically.January 31, 2017 at 12:01 am #75053
Members get access to a level when they pay for that level. You pay for level A, you get access to level A. If you then pay for level B, you get access to level B also.
Are you trying to give the members an option add a level to their profile for free (without any payment)? In that case you can use the following shortcode to create a button that will allow the member to add that level to their profile:January 31, 2017 at 12:28 am #75054
Thanks so much. Sounds like this may work for my needs.January 31, 2017 at 12:32 am #75055
Is there a way to redirect to another page with this button as well?
So when they click, they get access to the new level AND redirect to a content page.January 31, 2017 at 1:11 am #75056
I added the shortcode to create the button. It is very small and white.
Is there a way to customize the design of my button the we can in eStore?January 31, 2017 at 1:22 am #75057
You can specify a custom button text for the button by using the “button_text” parameter in the shortcode. Example shortcode usage below:
[wp_eMember_upgrade_membership_level_to level=”3″ button_text=”Click here to update”]
Redirect the Members to a Page After They Use the Button
You also can use the “redirect_to” parameter in the shortcode to redirect the members to a page after they use the level update button. Example shortcode usage below:
[wp_eMember_upgrade_membership_level_to level=”3″ redirect_to=”http://www.exmaple.com/page-after-update-button-usage”%5D
The style (look and feel) of the button comes from your theme’s style. If you want to us to help you customize, you will need to use the following option:January 31, 2017 at 1:25 am #75058

My suggestion for an improvement is to be able to change the button design much easier.
I did after several hours manage to change my button.
