Support » Plugin: Paid Memberships Pro » Could use improvements…

  • I like what I see and have used so far, but here are a few suggestions:

    • Separate subscriptions from levels – this will allow easier setup
    • Integrate myCRED – it’s a free plugin for site currency
    • Allow multiple payment gateways by default – I don’t like having to pay $97 to find out how to modify the plugin to do this.

    Ideally, I’d suggest removing IPN from the Paypal modules, but I doubt you’ll never do it.

    So far it hasn’t broken a site, but then again, I haven’t seen the category problem others have seen (though that may be an issue down the road for Leet News Network and a new site I’m working on).

    Thanks for the review, and thanks for the suggestions.

    > Separate subscriptions from levels – this will allow easier setup
    Do you have an example or better description of what you mean here?

    > Integrate myCRED – it’s a free plugin for site currency
    Is this the one you are talking about? https://wordpress.org/plugins/mycred/ What did you have in mind? Like the ability to pay for membership with “cred”?

    > Allow multiple payment gateways by default – I don’t like having to pay $97 to find out how to modify the plugin to do this.

    We’re with you here. Not sure when we’ll be able to get to it, but this is planned for the future.

    PayPal’s IPN, although responsible for a lot of my frustration coding PMPro ;), is required to fully integrate with each PayPal option.

    Thanks again!

    Allow users to create the levels (without expiring or payment options). Then allow users to create subscriptions and assign a level to each one. (ie. Levels would be Free, Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Subscriptions would be 30 days at $10, etc.)

    Yes, that is the one I was talking about. My idea is just that, allow for users to pay for their subscriptions with the site’s currency (site owners set this when setting up myCRED. They have a codex that could help you integrate it into your plugin.

    Great to hear about multiple gateways in the future – I’m going to be needing this.

    Figured that was the case with IPN, but I was hoping you could send a return URL with each payment to them and they could send the data to that, allowing for integration without IPN. I swear I saw it done in another plugin or script somewhere! I hate IPN cause I run multiple sites with Paypal, and Paypal has no way currently (unlike Payza) to set up different IPN addresses for each site (they could set up a simple site ID to identify the site for which the IPN request is coming from IMHO to fix this).

    You’re welcome!
