membership test payment gateway for paypal


I'm trying to get working with membership and paypal sandbox.

So, I have some questions:

1.Can we assign a specific gateway to a specific plan ?
2.What is necessary to enable upgrade options to paid Subscriptions ?
(mode=serial ?)
3.After payment with paypal (sandbox) the member remains in the same subscription plan! What should I do to change ?

    Hi there @marin,

    Hope you're well today and thanks for your question.

    1) This isn't currently possible out of the box, any active gateway can be used with any active plan.

    2) To have the possibility of a upgrade, Serial mode should be used (automatically recurring), this will allow for subscription modification :slight_smile:

    3) Is that a upgrade? Which subscription type was using? Is that single payments or standard gateway mode? :slight_smile:


    Kind Regards

    1. You are meaning that the customer could select the gateway ?
    What is about the "Free subscriptions gateway " ? We are using it only if the price is 0 and >0 for the other gateways ?

    2. It is "serial", but where is the link to upgrade ? Where should be ?
    Do I have to enable anything else ?

    3. It is a single payment ...

    Hi @marin,

    You should really only use 1 gateway, use the free gateway only if you are using free subscriptions.Paypal should accept a free charge, it just doesn't direct you to pay at paypal in that case.

    2. The upgrade will be available on your subscriptions page that you created in membership > options > membership pages subscriptions page.

    3. it can sometimes take paypal a while to return the paypal IPN to membership, until that time, the member will remain at their current level.

    Can you test in live mode? perhaps create a $0.50 plan and see if that works ok?
