Multiple products/subscriptions per member

We currently have the Membership plugin installed on a WP Multi-User setup. Several membership levels are configured. ie: Free, Bronze, Silver and Gold

The question we have is, can we possibly allow existing members the ability to start another subscription for a separate product?

Right now members are paying for access to the website, but we want to offer them the ability to purchase a re-occurring monthly subscription to a webinar series. The way I see this is, the webinar should simply be an "add-on" product to an existing membership. Is there anyway in which this could be facilitated with the current plugin?

One idea we had, but don't really care for is the following:
Duplicate all of our membership levels to include the webinar
ie: Bronze Level - Includes Webinar
Silver Level - Includes Webinar
Gold Level - Includes Webinar

But I feel this would not only clutter the signup/payment page, but would be confusing to the members. Additionally we would like members to be able to signup for the webinar add-on product and then be able to drop it if they decide they don't want it any more, but also still remain a paying member of the site without access to the webinars.

Any ideas, thoughts suggestions on how we could implement something like this would be appreciated.

    Hiya imagebox,

    Thanks for the detailed post. You're right. For the moment the easiest way to handle this through the membership plugin is to duplicate your subscription plans. We've been taking a look at some other solutions to provide in membership and the possibility of "add ons" is very real.

    I'll ask the developer if he has any thoughts to add here, but I believe that this is on the roadmap.

    Hi imagebox,

    Your proposed method of separating the subscriptions is the best way I can think to achieve that apart from custom coding up a more specific solution.

    One other thing I can think of is to enable Multisite and use a sub-site for the webinar. Membership could be configured separately on that sub-site. Would that work for you?
