Membership & subscriptions

I have membership plugin installed (and mainly configured), but here is what I want to do:

a) Sell a product that gives them permanent membership and access to the content (in the members area) (level 1)
b) Give them a 30 day free membership to extra features, which will be a monthly recurring payment at the end of 30 days.(level 2)
c) I want the payment for level 1 AND the delayed monthly subscription to be authorised at the initial point of purchasing through Paypal.

My questions are as follows:
1) How can I change the membership settings so that they do NOT refer to a subscription on the registration page, but a product sale
2) How do I set up the plugin subscriptions to carry out the requirements in a & b & c above

I've got to go live with this next week and have now spent 3 days trying to work it out myself, so some assistance would be much appreciated

Thanks

    Hi there! Welcome to the Community!

    1) How can I change the membership settings so that they do NOT refer to a subscription on the registration page, but a product sale

    This would need to be custom coded edits to the plugin files. If you want to tackle this then you can probably find most of what you are looking for here. content/plugins/membership/membershipincludes/includes
    but be warned you will lose any customizations on update. So make a copy.

    2) How do I set up the plugin subscriptions to carry out the requirements in a & b & c above

    Try this: create an Indefinite subscription for your initial membership, then create one with a Finite 30 day Free and follow that with the serial monthly in the same subscription

    Best,

    Hi Kimberly,

    Thanks for your reply. Thought you had solved it for me there.

    So am i adding 2 subscriptions?
    level 1 - membership at say $40 - one off payment (indefinite)
    level 2 - a free and a monthly? (finite and serial)

    Will this give the subscriber the opportunity to take one subscription, but not the other? If that is the case, it's not what I am looking for - i want to automatically give them the free monthly membership with the initial purchase (and set up the non free subscription for month 2 onwards). If they don't want to continue with the monthly, they can then cancel it (but still have the indefinite membership)
