Thanks again for this great product.
I have a question that doesn’t seem to be answered here.
I have a a subscription option on my site (which works well). However, the client would like for new subscriber to be able to put a political party into the field for him to distribute 20% of the generated profits to. He would also like for them to agree to the T&Cs before they can subscribe and get access to the downloads page. Theses options don’t seem to work with the subscription button.
look forward to your response.

Custom user input doesn’t work on subscription buttons.
Same with the subscription button t&c option. You can however have a line below or above the button that says something like to cover the terms and conditions side of things:
“By subscribing you agree to our terms and conditions”March 17, 2010 at 12:49 pm #18904
is there any way that the ‘buy it now’ or ‘add to cart’ buttons follow the same Paypal process as the ‘Subscribe’? The subscription is a one off payment subscription, but they still need to register their details.

PayPal has different API for handling subscriptions and the other type of payments which is why they are handled slightly differently in eStore too.
“they still need to register their details” – if you can elaborate on this then I might be able to help. Register whit what?March 18, 2010 at 10:30 am #18907
I had a feeling it would be something like that.
RE:”they still need to register their details”
I’m using eMember too, so basically the the process is:
1) User buys the one off subscription (paypal)
2) User gets sent to the registration page for eMember
3) User enters details to be able to log into the secure area
4) User logs into secure area and is able to download an ebook and the latest chapter of a second ebook.
Many thanks for your support.

This page explains the typical member registration flow:
Doesn’t matter what type of button you use (buy now or subscription) it will always follow that registration flow.

I tried the above process a few hours ago (before your response)and it didn’t seem to be working, as the email with the link/directions was not going to inbox (or junkmail).
I’ve just tried it again and it worked straight away, and the automated emails from my earlier test were in my mail.
Many thanks again for a great product and fantastic support.March 19, 2010 at 12:16 am #18910IvyMember
Hi, Sometimes it can take a hour or more for a server to deliver an email. Emails get queued and if a server is super busy it can take a while. This can also happens with Paypal IPN’s. This may be why there was a delay in the emails.
