Maybe I need to test with a different paypal email… since it was previously registered
I just noticed when clicking the registration link it logged me in as member of the site with no username.November 27, 2009 at 1:15 am #16324
I was getting this error when pressing Buy Now button

I’m tested with new paypal account and still getting Free Membership error message when clicking registration link from email
Please help.November 27, 2009 at 6:15 am #16326
In the mean time I set to “Allow Free Membership”, but only way to get register link is from email after paying. So this creates a duplicate user account in member list, one with no username.
This leaves a backdoor in to my site for free registration if someone figures out page address.
I don’t want free membership, but registration link in email does not work. It keeps sending user to error message.November 27, 2009 at 6:39 am #16327
Lets try to identify the problem… can you please post a link to the page where you have the “Buy Now” button for membership payment?November 27, 2009 at 6:50 am #16328
Yes, it is
I turned off free registration
Thanks for the helpNovember 27, 2009 at 7:48 am #16329
cool.. everything seems to be okay with the button. Can you please post the link where you have the registration form?November 27, 2009 at 7:55 am #16330
Turn free on/off?November 27, 2009 at 8:10 am #16331
Thanks… everything looks fine. What is suppose to happen is that when the unique link is clicked it should display the registration form so the visitor who just paid for the membership can choose his/her username and password and complete the registration.
For some reason it’s not identifying the unique code in the URL and displaying the proper registration form. I will need to take a look at your system if that possible. I will contact you via email.November 27, 2009 at 8:11 am #16332
Sure that’s fine.
Thanks again for the help.November 27, 2009 at 9:03 am #16333
Just to update this thread.. the actual issue turned out to be a permission problem on the .htaccess file. Because of this permission issue WordPress couldn’t write the rewrite rules for URL.November 27, 2009 at 9:32 am #16334
Permalinks I think also, I had to change register url to have /login/register/ instead of /?page_id=26/
and some permission issues with .htaccess file
Thank you for the help! WOOOHOOOOOO
Give me virtual Hi Five !!April 29, 2013 at 5:53 pm #16335LoriHMember
I’m having a similar issue. I’m testing a paid membership with emember. I do NOT have free memberships.
I’m using wp 3.5.2 and eMember v. 8.6.2 (should all be current)
The test link for paypal is: [https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=J446Z8N7WJN5G]
Which should take you to the registration form at: [http://unearthyourworth.com/join-us/registration/]
Instead I get this message:
Free membership is disabled on this site!
Please visit the Payment Page to pay for a membership
Now, free membership IS disabled, but this is a paid membership.
Paypal shows the payment has been processed.
But there is no actual registration option for the buyer. I do end up with a blank membership ID created. Not good.
I haven’t done anything to restrict my .htaccess file, but I’m not sure (if that’s the issue) what the proper permissions should be.
I can access the registration page using the backdoor method (reference the id: 5). But that’s not the way I’d like to go.
I’m stuck. Please help.April 29, 2013 at 11:31 pm #16336adminKeymaster
1) First read this documentation so you know what to expect in terms of a paid membership registration flow (what the steps are):
2) Next, make sure that you have created the PayPal button correctly (this documentation tells you what to do):
3) When a customer makes a payment using the PayPal button you created, he/she is suppose to get an email with a *special link* that lets them complete the membership registration. Are you getting this email with the link?
If you are not even getting step 3 to work then it means, eMember is not receiving the payment notification from PayPal after a payment. We will need to figure out where things are going wrong with your PayPal account. Enable debug from the plugin setting which will help with that. This post will tell you how to enable debug:
