Do you know of any reason why Web Traffic Genius wouldn’t work with your plugins (currently eStore and eMember activated)
Do you have a similar list of ‘naughty’ themes ?
That worked well, but…..
I can’t check what has been set up on the eStore ‘Manage Products’ page. As a product suggestion – could you add some (optional) columns to the ‘Manage products’ page so that I don’t have to go through each product one by one to see what has been set up ?
Great – Do I need to do both the Trial Price and the Product Price in(1) above or just the Trial Price ?
Apparently, there is no end to the power of WP eStore /eMember !
Thanks & BWs
So imagine for example, I have a product which sells for $20 to visitors/free members and 5$ to subscribing members. To offer a $10 annual subscription and a $5 product together, I need to set up the button for a new product called “Buy and Subscribe”, I set up a new product as normal, using these settings:
Under WP eStore – Add/Edit Products
(1) – Product Details – Product Price field <enter the $5 discount price>
(2) – Additional Product Details – Reference text field <enter the membership level ie number 2>
(3) – Subscription /Recurring Payment Specific Settings <enter the annual sub’n ($10) >
Have I got this right ? Is there no end to the power of WP eStore /Member ? )
I’m using eMember (you may have heard of it) )
On my product pages I offer three ways to get hold of my products – visitors / free members can pay full price, annual members can pay a discounted price and life members can download for free. I want people to join and so I have configured the website to get people to join (subscribe) and then buy discounted products. My internet marketing coach thinks this offer is too complicated and I need to simplify it. He thinks that I should drive traffic to product posts (not membership page) and then upsell them to subscriber on the product page when they can see the price difference.
Now I have Paypal buttons which can do membership subscriptions and buttons which sell products, but I would like to have a button, which could do both at once:
1. Visitor / free member lands on product page, reads stuff, likes what he sees, decides to buy
2. He sees two buttons, one “Buy” button and another “Buy and Subscribe” and realises that buying and subscribing is better value than just buying. He cannot see the section protected Annual members ‘Buy’ button (discounted product) or the Life Members ‘Go To Download page’ button.
3. He clicks on “Buy and Subscribe”, which enrols him as an annual member (a recurring payment) and puts the discounted product (annual member’s price) into the shopping cart.
4. When he checks out, he does both the recurring subscription payment thing and the one off shopping cart thing
5. He receives a confirmation link
6. He then registers as an annual member
7. He receives a download link for the discounted product he ordered.
8. He downloads the product which massively improves his holiday /vacation and enjoys his membership
This is different from the scenarios you describe in the post. I tried to draw a table but the comment box doesn’t allow it. Think of the dashes as columns and the double dashes as rows!
Scenario – Description – Difference
1 – Visitors buying membership subscriptions – Visitors want to buy a product not a membership —
2 – Visitors must join (free) to buy a product – Visitors want to buy a product not membership —
3 – Only members can buy products – I might miss a lot of sales to visitors (Visitors may not buy or join!)–
3b – Only members can buy products (+eStore) – I might miss a lot of sales to visitors–
My – Anyone can buy, but the offer depends on membership status – Visitors can choose whether to buy a product or join (subscribe) and pay less–
I sent some login details separately to Ivy. She has told me that I need to to fill the recurring amount and recurring cycle even for a one-off payment (which I had left blank).
The button now works correctly with the following settings (charging the user 50 dollars once for a life membership)
Recurring Billing Amount -> 50.00
Recurring Billing Cycle -> 1
Recurring Billing Count -> -1
Reattempt on failure -> Checked
Thanks and BWs
Thank you, both links were very useful and have set my mind at rest. I shall now continue with the video !
Oh dear, something is not quite right here. I followed the instructions on that page before raising this with you – I note that at Step Two the window is entitled
“WP eMember – Autoresponder settings”
I’m afraid that I have no such page. My Autoresponder settings page is in WP-eStore. I will send you a login by email for my site so that you can see what is installed there.
I’ve just discovered that free members are not being added to my aWeber list and thus not getting their introductory email series. This is a shame as I have been sending them an email from eMember saying that this will happen !
Checking a few settings I find that I have correctly implemented the instructions given in the eMember documentation, but that autoresponder settings live in eStore not eMember. Then I started looking around the forum and discovered this conversation. I rely heavily on capturing emails and to gently persuade free members to upgrade to paying membership. I need to be able to add free members to the mailing list automatically – I want to heavily promote soon, so what do you suggest ?
I’m using eMember 4.9.4 and eStore 3.9.6
http://developers.facebook.com/docs/guides/web – see single sign on section. This the Facebook developers page about it
http://mashable.com/2008/12/11/facebook-connect-blog/ this is an article and video about it on Mashable, which may mean more to you than me.
http://www.vimeo.com/log_in – another example
I would also like all the other Facebook widgets and so on, but I think the login (connect) bit is the one that I want re-assurance about. WIll this work with emember and WordPress logins ?
@wpcommerce – I checked the link before posting.
@Ivy – I have sent a download link to your email address. I hope you are visiting Rome soon

I’m afraid the customer reports that this has not happened – what should I check ?
I’m interested in the plug-in / short code that you mention as I do audio things on my web site ( http://mp3travelclub.com ). but the link you provide seems to be your standard list of short codes and not the plug-in you mentioned. Can you point me to the right place, please ? Or have I misunderstood ?
BTW sub_bass – I looked at your site and got “file not found” errors when trying to play tracks on your site
I spoke to Paypal too – the issue appears to have been that my products are priced in USD and not my primary currency (GBP). This was very simple to sort out once I knew what to do.

I have three membership levels and I have put different buttons to give discounts to my suscribers. I’ve then used the [emember_protected] function (??) to conceal the subscribers buttons from members of different flavour. And now the buttons now just show as the shortcodes to the world. Not good ! Especially as I’m trying to capitalise on Google’s Superbowl “Parisian Love” advertisement video – but I can’t go for it until I have a way around this !! As a travel guide guy, I want to post a reply video showing my site ! – mp3travelclub.com
