I have an active membership site with over 270 members managed with WishlistMember.
I feel like switching from this plugin to eMember.
Coudl you guide me with as step by step process to transfer all my current wishlis members to eMember as invisibly as possible.
The reason why I am thinking of switching is simply because since I am using wishlistMember, I notice that many members often have problems with their password. Every week, some members tell me that their password doesn’t work and/or have difficulty getting a new one. Since it doesn’t work smoothly, they simple don’t use the membership site and move away. despite several communications with Wlmember technicians, the problem has never been stbilized with the new upgrades.
Knowing the good job you do at Tips and Tricks, I want to give a serious try to eMember.
Thanks for your help.July 15, 2010 at 3:53 am #22439amin007Participant
I would recommend doing a test setup of the plugin on a test server to nut out everything before doing the switch. I am just not a big fan of telling people to dump their system and use my stuff just cause it will make me some money. It’s more important for you to make sure your users will have an easier transition if you finally do want to make the move.
You should be able to import the wordpress users into our eMember from the admin dashboard of eMember and that should be it.July 16, 2010 at 4:03 pm #22440
Thank you for your answer.
Your integrity towards your challengers is a great attitude, but I have really lost many members just because of this trouble I told you about.
So I want to run the test you suggest and see. Just how do I import the users from wordpress?

Go to “Members” under WP eMember. Now click on the “Integrate WP Members” tab. It will show you the list of all the WordPress members. Check the box next to which member you want to import and click “Submit”.July 17, 2010 at 2:39 pm #22442
Thank you. Much easier than I thought.
Have a great week-end.August 30, 2012 at 3:20 am #22443MargueritavMember
I have an added challenge. I am migrating off Digital Access Pass for much of the same reasons as the person in this previous post.
At the same time I have decided to re-brand my material and am migrating everything onto a new website with a new URL.
Is there anyway I can make this transition easily with my members including the Paypal monthly membership fee setup?

How many active PayPal subscriptions do you have currently?
