Support » Plugin: WooCommerce and WP eMember Integration » Nightmare waiting to happen

  • It’s pretty obvious that the developers of WP eMember want you to use their payment processing solution, not WooCommerce. The number of settings that need to be adjusted between the two plugins and the potential for the two not working together properly are a sure recipe for failure.

    On the day my Membership program launched, just an hour or so before the email went out to subscribers, I was finally able to test the registration process. IT WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO WORKING AS IT WAS SUPPOSED TO. This is after watching one video after another and carefully following instructions therein. Hours and hours spent on technology, rather than on content development or other more pressing issues. This is NOT what technology is supposed to be. Plugins and software are supposed to aide in making my business be more efficient – not BE the focus of my time and let everything else wallow on the sidelines.

    Look at the documentation. I read one article that required two more articles be consumed in the first paragraph … neither of which appeared to be documentation – simply forum posts.

    If you want to use WP eMember (which on the surface seems to be an OK solution) for content protection, registration, etc. Then don’t try to use WooCommerce with it. Too many traps. Just go whole-hog in to what the developers are selling OR find something that is reasonable to implement.
