I have everything working with the Wishlist member integration with one exception. Once the customer pays for the membership they are supposed to be redirected back to the URL for them to setup their account. This was working fine using the payment integration inside Wishlist Member. This is not happening using the WP eStore (or I have something setup wrong which is a distinct possibility). It is being redirected back to the main page of the site. They are still getting the email, but I am afraid this could get overlooked. Is there a location where I can set this so they are sent to the right page after paying?
BTW: I am using the subscribe button for this.

Hi Brett, When integrating WishList with a payment processor you have a few option. You probably used a plain paypal button integration option which sends the visitor back to the site to complete the registration but this approach is error prone as the customer can close the browser after paying on paypal.
when you use Wishlist with eStore it does everything through the PayPal IPN (Instant Payment Notification) feature. This also allows the integration with the affiliate software for commission awarding purpose. When you use the IPN feature everything starts to happen in the background as soon as the customer hits the “Pay Now” button on paypal.
So after a visitor pays for a membership they will receive two emails from eStore.
1) one for the standard purchase email
2) and a 2nd one which will contain a unique link to complete the registration
once the visitor clicks on this unique link they will be brought to the page where Wishlist will let them complete the membership.
Due to the limitation of integration option you can choose one of two methods (either through a plain PayPal button) or using eStore where everything happens in the background via emails.
You can customize the “Return URL” in eStore’s settings page so it redirect the customer to a “Thank You” page where you can put instructions like “You will receive an email with instructions bla bla bla”.December 6, 2009 at 6:55 am #16488brettmcMember
I was actually using IPN with Wishlist Member as well and it redirected back to the site as well as sending an email, but I think your suggestion on just redirecting back to a generic page with instructions on what to expect is a great solution and will work just fine.
