Extend membership instead of giving money

Is it possible to extend the membership of the affiliate of some month instead of giving him money ?
It seems to me this plugin needs this sort of option and it will be easy to add it with the supporter "plugin".
Do I am the first one asking for such a feature ?

Thanks

    I would also love this feature and would assume it has been asked for. Right now the 'extend' membership is all manual as far as I know. This is a limitation of using paypal. Even if you extend their membership, they will still be charged their recurring fee as far as I am aware. It just tacks the time on if they cancel.

    Correct me if I'm wrong staff!

    With the single payment gateways we could probably do something - I'll have to think of the best approach. As @eric_g mentions above though, with those gateways that managed the recurring payments themselves - there isn't really much we can do as the charging is handled externally and the plugin just sits there and receives the payment notifications.

    Thanks for your quick anwsers.
    I'm not using recurring payement so it's not a problem for me... but you could still give free supporter features instead of extending the membership for example or a free membership for the affiliate to give to a friend.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
