I'm having some issues getting the Membership setup on my site.
Here's what I'd like to do:
Have a monthly Paid Membership rate @ $60.
Have a free Trial Membership that expires in 1 month, then requiring the user to upgrade if they want to retain access. I would prefer that they are notified that they need to pay their membership a week before it expires.
I tried setting up the Trial Membership as Finite for 1 Month with $0 price. Then I added the next level, as the monthly membership within the same Subscription Plan, but I don't like that it says "You will pay: Free for 1 month, and then AUD60.00 every month". Is there a way to edit that text? I would like to change the wording if I had to use it this way. At least when I have it set this way, it show a single Sign-Up button, which is great. There is a minor problem in that the table doesn't fit my theme... where can I adjust this table width?
As an experiment, I removed the 2nd level from the Free Subscription Plan, but then when you go to subscribe, it shows 3 buttons... 2 PayPal ones, and the single blue Sign Up button. I have the Free Subscriptions Gateway & the PayPal Single Payments Gateway active. I need a 2nd gateway for the paid subscription option, but this looks silly and confusing having 3 buttons. It doesn't matter which is clicked, as they all give you free membership, but it would look at lot better with just the 1 button! Will it not work if I have just the 1 month membership without the 2nd level?
I also would like to offer a membership deal that expires on a set date, no matter when the person signs up for it. eg. I want to set a rate & it will expire on the 1st May, no matter when the person signs up... is this possible with this plugin?
Also, I note that the WP user is created before the subscription option is selected. If the user doesn't proceed with the subscription, they will still already have a login. Is it possible to force that a subscription is selected before creating the WP user?
A couple of other questions:
1. What happens if the Free user doesn't sign up by the expiry date? Do they loose login access to the site all together, or would they still have site access, but just not a subscription?
2. What is the difference between the PayPal Gateway options? Is there a way via PayPal to automatically renew membership & charge for it?
I look forward to hearing from you.
