I am using WP emember with WP estore. I have created just one level for “members”. But I notice in your instructional videos that you say we should create a product in WP-estore for that membership and use a BUY NOW Button.
Why do we use a BUY NOW button instead of a Subscription button?
I want to give people a 7 day free trial period and then start monthly billing for membership, till cancelled.November 17, 2019 at 7:27 pm #80073wzpModerator
A “Buy Now” button is similar to Amazon’s “1 Click” button. It bypasses the cart and goes straight to the payment screens. A “Subscription” button is like a “Buy Now” button, except that it allows the purchase to be “recurring.”
Memberships can either be recurring or non-recurring. You might have a membership that requires a one-time payment (Buy Now), or one that requires periodic renewal (Subscription).

That would be a “Subscription” button with a trial period.November 18, 2019 at 3:18 am #80074Shobha_PonnappaParticipant

I have two, separate recurring memberships available to purchase through Stripe. And I have the links and buttons all set up for that. But I would like them to go to a cart page so that the customer can purchase both memberships in their cart / one shopping experience. Is that possible? Or does that mess up how they register and can have one account with multiple memberships? We have it set up for that right now. Thanks.November 27, 2019 at 1:08 am #80076adminKeymaster
Subscription/recurring payment buttons can’t go to cart. They are just one button that a custom can click and it takes the customer to the subscription agreement page directly. Only “One time” payment buttons can be added to the cart.
If you are doing some “One time” payment buttons then you can use the “Buy Now” type buttons. It will then be similar to how the subscription buttons work (Click on a button and the next step is payment information page)November 29, 2019 at 2:53 pm #80077
So there is no way to have a subscription item that goes to a cart page? Even if it’s a non-recurring subscription?
We’d like to give a customer the option to purchase a small business membership per business entity, but turning on the quantity field for that product/membership doesn’t show up on the checkout page since it skips the cart.November 30, 2019 at 9:00 pm #80078wzpModerator
@cryptotaxfixer — What you might consider trying is selling membership voucher certificates, that the end users can redeem for membership registrations; using the Gift Voucher Addon:
This would allow you to add memberships in quantity to the cart. The purchaser would then redeem the vouchers for the desired memberships.
