Paid Memberships Pro
Email verfication or activation after checkout (5 posts)

    I am currently testing the PMPro plugin and I have created a trial (free) membership level.

    I have noticed that when a user selects the trial membership and proceeds to checkout, they are required to provide username, email and password. After submitting that information, the account is immediately created even without verifying the email address. How can I ensure that the user's email address is authentic?

    Can I send an activation link to the customers email...with a link for them to activate their account? Another alternative way to achieve the desired result would be to not allow users to set their password, but instead email them a randomly generated password to their email address at checkout....the user would then have to input an authentic email address to login.

    If this plugin was to be used in a live website, users could use random email addresses to use the trial membership repeatedly and never bother with paid membership levels.

    Am I missing a trick? BTW apart from this issue, I think the plugin is very well made. Kudos to the developers!

    We don't have anything like this built in. It could be custom coded. One manually work around is to have 2 levels. Have users sign up for 1 level and email them a discount code or link for level 2 (the real level).

    Hi strangerstudios! I also need this functionality. When you mention that it can be custom coded, does that mean that there is premium documentation somewhere that can direct me how to do it, or are you and/or your team offering to do it for me for a price? Please let me know. Thank you!

    Jason is referring to the fact that a custom implementation could be created for you. Here are our pricing options: http://paidmembershipspro.com/pricing. Alternatively you'll want to check out the post that @essaysnark mentioned.

    @essaysnark - Thanks for posting the link!
