How to upgrade to Membership?


I will move my site to buddypress and I am currently using wishlist member. I have been told by wishlist member support there is not good integration with buddypress.

I would like to know which steps should I follow to switch from wishlist to Membership?

Is there any script to capture all settings or it must be done manually?

Will I have to cancel my paid subscribers and ask them to subscribe again or is there any way to create each membership and seamlessly integrate it with my paypal account?

These are the questions I have right now, please include any additional info you consider important in this topic.

Thanks a lot for your help,

    Thank you very much, I will appreciate it a lot !!!

    Think that it will be traumatic to close all my currently customer accounts and ask them to create new ones, I will surely loose some clients in the process, so it will be better if I can avoid this option.

    Have a nice weekend !

    I’m afraid I’ve never used Wishlist member so don’t know how it integrates with PayPal, if you can provide some information on that then I may be able to suggest something, but I would imagine that the two aren’t going to handle things the same way out of the box.
