I've become a member because I really need your Membership plugin;
I've now got a website and would want to only grant access to most of my content (e.g. the posts/article) to my subscribers. These subscribers already pay me directly (i.e. not via PayPal etc... but I invoice these corporate clients and their account's department transfer money to my bank account) and the service I provide is not 'for free'. I was told in earlier correspondence to yourself that it would be no problem, to upgrade manually people without them having to use eg. PayPal.
I've setup the following and despite looking closely at your video tutorials, I cannot make it work out...
What I think would work would be to a) setup a 'Level1' Subscription which people could register for free (eg. using the "free subscription gateway"), and a 'Level2' subscription worth - say 100$ per annum - that people could pay for using PayPal. That way, if people are willing to use PayPal: good, if not and they absolutely want to pay via their account department, then I could manually upgrade them from Level1 (free) to Level2.
Q1: How do I setup a) a Level1 subscription that can only be 'paid' using the free subscription gateway; and b) a Level2 sub that can only be 'paid' using PayPal?
Q2: How do I manually upgrade a user from Level1 to Level2?
Q3: Alternatively, I'm happy not to use an ePayment gateway at all. But I MUST have a way for people to a) register their name etc. username/password and b) a way for me (administrator) to upgrade their status to a subscription level granting them access. I stress here again that the service & access I provide is not for free. I have only a few (but big) clients so doing 'everything' (upgrading, controlling access period etc...) manually is not a problem at all.
I'd asked this all before purchasing the Plugin but the response were a generic 'yes no problem', now I need to make it work, please provide details,
