This post is a little old, but I still need customers to be able to access more than 1 membership at a time to download different software products they purchase. In wishlist member, the second or third product membership just gets added to the customers current one under the same registration. If they purchase product A, then later purchase product B, they are given access to both. And as you indicate earlier, they do not get a new membership account for each product, just access to each membership. Is this possible?
Otherwise, you said customers could download from the purchase history page. Can you tell me how to make that possible.
Sorry, didn’t see that section. That should work. I can just list all the different versions of my software with a lower price and the customer can make the decision.
Thanks for the reply. Yes, I was testing wishlist member prior to testing emember. I had watched the video, and changed the Reference Text from the wishlist number to the emember number prior to making any test purchases. Maybe i will wipe out the test site and re-install everything and see what happens.
Also as a wishlist, any chance of making an area for an after registration page. That way a customer could be taken to a one time offer page that they would only see after registering. Any time they login after that, they are taken to the after login page.

Your scenario may work, but the first problem is getting people to buy in the first place and forcing them to join may make that first sale even harder. As you know, customers are lazy, so unless they are dying to get my software, they may not take that step and will move on to something easier for them.
I did a test buy while being logged in, and the only thing that changed was I could download the second product, but now I couldn’t download the first. Is there no way to just add what ever membership they purchase to their account so they would now have access to 2 memberships, or 3, or however many they bought? This would be the more ideal way.

Yes, exactly. I don’t want a customer to have 10 different memberships. I want them to be able to access all their purchases through 1 membership, but this can’t seem to be done right now. They should be able to make their first purchase, create their account, and have access to the first software. Then when they buy a second software, when they log into their account, that download page should be available to them, as well as the one for their first purchase.
I just did a test buy now and the product for the customer changed to the one they just purchased and they have lost access to the first one. So at this point, I am stuck with trying to do something I can’t

I have a number of software products and am using the membership plugin for delivering them. That way when I do an upgrade, all the purchaser needs to do is login and download the latest version.
The problem occurs when a customer buys software A and then later comes back and buys software B. They can’t use their email to login to get software B and can’t create a new account with the same email. So they would need a second email for that. And then if they buy software C later, they are in more trouble cause now they need a third email address.
Maybe I am trying to use it for something for which it wasn’t designed.
I figured it out. After adding the membership pages, there were too many pages in the menu, causing it to wrap into a second line and screwing up the layout.
Maybe I should have given you the url. Go to http://ebiztracker.com and look at it in IE and in Firefox.
OK, I moved emember, and the login part will work, BUT, and this is weird, it wipes out my top menu on the theme in Firefox if I use it. The menu is there in IE. If I delete the register, login, profile, pages, the menu comes back.
Any idea where to look to solve this? Or maybe I’ll just use another theme. I am using The Corporation theme from elegantthemes.com
I am going to move emember to the site I actually am going to use it on and see if this problem quits. My only other question before I do testing is if there is a way the customer can be returned form paypal to the registration page with the same details filled in as if they clicked the link they have in the email. My reason for this is in case they don’t get the email, they can still register.
Thanks. That worked.
Here is what the iDev support said as to why the last name is not showing up:
Well this is being chopped.
You’d need this to be sent using standard HTML.
%20 would be a space.
Try HTML entities or some other piece of code to conver the data before assigning it to a URL.
Is that easily doable?
Actually, I see it is recording the first name, but not the last. Not sure how I missed that, but I will send a help ticket to iDev with the details and see what they have to say about the last name.
OK, I tried the code and I am not getting the customer name, so just to make sure I have it right, here is exactly what I put in the paypal.php:
$ip = $customvariables;
$sale_amount = $this->ipn_data;
$order_num = $this->ipn_data;
$customer_name = $this->ipn_data.” “.$this->ipn_data;
$prepared_url = “http://site.com/idevaffiliate/sale.php?profile=72198&idev_saleamt=”.$sale_amount.”&idev_ordernum=”.$order_num.”&ip_address=”.$ip.”&idev_option_1=”.$customer_name;
$this->debug_log(‘Adding iDev commission. Prepared URL = ‘.$prepared_url,true);
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $prepared_url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
I am getting the transaction id and sale amount, so that works, just not passing the name.
Cool. I’ll give it a try tonight.
