I am building a website for my mother as a Christmas present.
I have a couple questions on setting up the plugin.
First is it possible to resize login widget in sidebar? It extends outside the textbox and in to the posts
Also I’m not clear how to set up payment with paypal for each subscription…
I want 2 options
1-year member access
Lifetime member access
Can someone point me in the right direction?

I see I need eStore, working on that now…November 26, 2009 at 9:18 pm #16289amin007Participant
Hi Clintbaptiste, You do not need eStore (it helps and makes the accepting payment side of things easier if you do but it’s not a must).
with that said, you can have a plain PayPal “Subscription” or “Buy Now” button to do the job for you. There are two parts to accepting payment for any membership:
1) A payment button (eg. a “Subscribe” button) that the visitor can use to pay you money.
2) A script that does the post-payment processing (eg. create appropriate membership account for the visitor who just paid for the membership).
Step 1 is really simple (you just get the button code from PayPal and embed it on a page). Some people choose to do step 2 manually (I don’t really like this). How do you automate step 2? The answer is PayPal’s IPN (Instant payment notification) feature. The following link explains the IPN feature in details:
You may already have an IPN handling script that some other post-payment stuff for you. In this case I can give you a bit of code that you just add to your existing IPN handling feature to automate step 2.
If you don’t have any IPN handling script then I can give you a fresh one that you just put on your server and it’s done.
Let me know if this makes sense.November 26, 2009 at 9:57 pm #16290
Oh….. Wow, really? I could have used a script to automate it?
I figured out the paypal button part, but not step 2 like you mentioned…
Thanks for your help.

Well I did already purchase eMember and eStore separately.
Is it possible to refund the package special difference?
These are great plugins, very easy to use.
