We have several different membership levels on our website. Each level lasts 3 months and then expires. We want to be able to extend a membership level another 3 months for a discounted rate. So one level is $200 and we want to extend it for $20. Another level might be $50 and we want to extend it for $10.
I’ve search the forums but can’t seem to find the answer to this question. We don’t want to renew all the levels at the initial price but want to select which levels we offer renewals and choose the renewal price.
How can we do this and send out an automated email with a page where they can renew their membership at a discounted level.April 1, 2015 at 12:47 am #69393adminKeymaster
Create your renewal buttons at whatever price you want. Then put those buttons on a page and tell the members to go to that page and pay for renewal:

Thank you for the assistance.
In the info below, it seems vague on where to create the buttons in WP eStore. Do I create a new product that duplicates a course we’re selling at a reduced price when they renew the membership? The instructions seem a bit vague. Below is the instructions for this part that I’m referring to.
ii) Option B – Using an eStore Button for Membership Renewal/Upgrade
Simply create an eStore payment button the same way you created it for your membership joining page.
When a member wishes to upgrade his/her account, all this member has to do is click on this button and make the payment. After the payment, the plugin will use the payment email address to identify the correct member account and upgrade or renew the account automatically.
WP eStore’s payment buttons are a little more advanced than a plain PayPal button in the sense that it can carry more data. So when using an eStore button it is also possible to upgrade the member account that is logged into the site at the time of making the payment (In this case it doesn’t matter which email address the payment is coming from).
Adding More Flavor to Your Upgrade/Renewal Buttons
If you want to add a little bit of flavour to your membership upgrade path then create special payment buttons that are just like the payment button for the normal premium membership but with a discounted price. Then place it on a page that only premium members have access to. Now, your members can make payment using these buttons to upgrade their account at a discounted price. Since this page that contains these buttons can only be viewed by a premium member, an anonymous visitor won’t be able to signup at this special discounted price.April 28, 2015 at 11:33 pm #69395adminKeymaster

Yes, you can create as many eStore products as you want (for the same membership but using different pricing).
