    Does Paid Member Subscriptions create a member database that can be accessed via external php or allow access to member data in a similar fashion? I’m working on a non web based application that requires member accounts and subscriptions to be validated before certain features are activated. I would like to be able to reference the member data remotely. Is this a possibility with this plugin?

  • The user information is held in the WordPress database. Have a look at table wp_pms_member_subscriptions which seems to reference the table wp_usermeta for it’s subscription details.
    You need to be aware if you are going to reference this data that the supplier of the plugin can change how and where they store their information at any time. So any update to the plugin could break your application.

    This is exactly the information I was looking for. Thank you.

    Hello @tread06 and @mainplus

    I come with an additional insight.

    PMS assigns a user role to each active member of a subscription plan.

    When membership expires, the user role is removed.

    And if membership is still pending (due to payment not going through), the user role is not assigned.

    So the user role can successfully be used for this, and it’s part of the core WordPress functionality, so quite stable over time.

    With best of regards,
