Membership Plugin - Require Approval Before Account Is Active

I am wondering if there is a way to have a membership account go to a "pending approval" state. For example, one account is paid for and one is free however student ID must be verified prior to activation so the member does not get access until admin approves their request. Is this possible with pings?

    Hey there @Mr. Goodfellow

    Thanks for posting! :slight_smile:

    While there's not a way to have that done seamlessly or automatically with Membership right now, there are some ways you can make that work.

    You may be interested in a new user approval plugin like this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/new-user-approve/

    That will require admin approval on all new users on your site.

    Would you mind letting me know how you'll be requesting their student ID? Will that be by personal message, or maybe a custom required field durring registration?

    You could just manually check their ID after they sign up, and then manually grant them access. Unfortunately, that would need to be done for every new member, and renewals. (If present)

    Hope this helps! Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,
    Joshua
