Since each “product” that I am creating in JVZoo is for a different membership level, I think I could use the “HTTP Post” (or HTTP Get) API function to create the membership. I could return the person that is signing up to a page specific for that membership level, and have them fill in their details.
If I understand this correctly, I think this would work. But the BIG problem would be that none of the memberships would be automatically tied to the Paypal payment processing. When someone cancelled their recurring payment, I would have to manually disable their membership.
Am I understanding this correctly?
If I did it this way, does the rest of the process remain the same? —After they fill in this info, they get a confirmation email that they have to click on, etc. Or does creating a membership through the API create the member database record and the WP user record?
Thanks! That will work great. Actually, I should have stopped and thought a minute and I could have figured out that I could have used this same process – duh!!April 11, 2012 at 5:26 pm in reply to: eMember – redirect after joining is going to incorrect page #43922
OK…an update on this…and for anyone else that may come across this and THINK it is a problem.
It was a mistake on my part. It is because I am using eStore & eMember together. I was not being directed to this page from eMember. I was being directed to this page from eStore – at the completion of paying for this product (that was for a membership). I had changed this page and the wrong URL was still coded on the product corresponding to this membership level.
I should have realized that this was part of the email settings…my bad!
I have changed them to be more “generic” so that they can apply to either a purchased product or a subscription payment.April 10, 2012 at 12:05 am in reply to: eMember – redirect after joining is going to incorrect page #43920
No. I am not using a caching plugin.
Sorry about that! I have submitted via the contact form. Thanks!April 4, 2012 at 10:03 pm in reply to: How to protect WordPress "pages" using eMember "protect categories"? #43636
Thanks! Works like a champ!
Thanks for your suggestion. I was thinking Style9 was for MP3s. This is pretty much what I wanted.
However, I still had to add the code (to the style 9 format now) to not show any items with zero available qty. I think this would be a good option to add in the future.April 3, 2012 at 12:47 pm in reply to: How to protect WordPress "pages" using eMember "protect categories"? #43634
Thanks for looking at it. It sure would make it easier for what I need to do.
Works like a champ! Thanks again!
You the MAN! I really wondered to myself if that could be what you were doing. Thanks! That’s GREAT! Just what I needed!March 29, 2012 at 5:29 am in reply to: Directing customer to a download page for a free item. #43485
I just found this thread that says there is no way to redirect after a download…
I assume this is still true. If so, it looks like several people would like this. Maybe it is a “future feature” that you could add.
Please let me know about modifying the code or any other suggestions you have to accomplish what I am trying to do. Thanks for your help!March 29, 2012 at 5:18 am in reply to: Directing customer to a download page for a free item. #43484
The problem I am having is that users will have a given number of “credits” that they can use for “free” downloads. The easiest process for the user would be to just provide them with a “Download Now” button. The problem I have with that is that, when they do a download, I need to reduce their available credits by 1. The plugin I plan on using for this functionality has a shortcode that can be placed on a page that will do this.
I feel like I am causing the user more work than they should have to go through. I am making them click an “Add To Cart” button, and then they have to go “Check Out”. The only reason I am doing this is just so I can send them to a “download” page.
Is there some way I can send them to a page when they click a “Download Now” button. If not, can you tell me where (in the plugin code) this process is taking place? Maybe I can extract the code that the “credits” plugin would execute to deduct a credit and add it to this code.
Do you have any other possible suggestions?March 28, 2012 at 2:46 pm in reply to: Directing customer to a download page for a free item. #43482
Here is the page that I have been playing with…
I played around a little bit more. Here is what I have found…
The page has the same product listed two times – once with an “Add To Cart” button, and once with a “Buy Now” button. I put the shopping cart in a widget on the sidebar just for testing purposes – I don’t want to normally have it display (reasons listed later). Right now, the only active checkout method is “manual”.
1.) If I click on the “Buy Now” button, I am directed to PayPal even though it is a zero price item and PayPal is turned off. Why?
If I click on “Add To Cart”, it is added to the cart fine. When I then checkout, I am sent to the manual checkout page. I fill the form out and everything seems to work fine. A customer record is created, I get an email with the download link, etc. However, I have a couple questions about this.
On the “Here Are Your Downloads” page, I need to include a shortcode for EACH product that is part of this “transaction”. I am not sure if I can make that happen with the eStore plugin if I allow the user to get more than one item during each checkout.
So, the things I need to figure out/work around are…
1.) I am going to have pages that will list products. I would prefer (I think) to just have a “Buy Now” button beside each that would let the user go through a manual checkout right then for that one item.
2.) If I can’t do #1 (above), can I limit the user to only be able to purchase one product at a time somehow? Related to this – can I prevent the shopping cart from having the option of changing the “Qty”? (The user should only be able to purchase one of any given item.)
3.) Since I will be using the manual checkout, does the user HAVE to enter all the customer info each time? This would be a problem since they will be downloading multiple items a month. The users would complain about having to do this, and I don’t have to have a bunch of duplicate customer records. Is there some way around this?
What was the final outcome of this?
