Membership Plugin PayPal Integration

Does this membership plugin exchange IPN with PayPal? Does it remove or suspend accounts that have been canceled thru PayPal or that have expired?

    Hello terryplatt,

    Welcome to WPMU DEV! We're glad you're here!

    Membership does communicate with PayPal and it uses a subscription based model where if payment isn't receive for a subscription level that requires payment, the subscription is removed from that member along with whatever membership levels were attached to it.

    The system doesn't remove accounts itself, but technically it can be considered as suspending an account when a subscription fails to renew because a payment isn't made.

    Hope that helps! Please let me know if any of this needs clarification.

    Cheers,
    David

    To add a bit to the reply from David. When an subscription ends (expires) or is cancelled via PayPal then the levels and subscriptions are removed and the user effectively becomes a stranger.
    If the user initiates a chargeback or disputes a payment via PayPal then the account is deactivated so they can't log-in to the account. The subscription information remains though so that once the dispute is resolved they can be re-activated by the admin user if wanted / required.

Thank NAME, for their help.
