Support » Plugin: Paid Memberships Pro » Pre-purchase questions

  • Hi

    I’m setting up a paid membership website, and trying to decide which membership program to choose. I’d be grateful if the developer could answer the following questions to help me make my decision.

    1. I want my site to be a membership site, with 2 levels of membership – free and paid. The main aim of my site is to offer paid members technical advice via a Q&A. The way I want it to work is for paying members only to be able to view the Q&As, a paying member can ask a question but ONLY I can respond to the question.
    Does Paid Memberships Pro support this, and what Q&A plugin would best suit my needs?

    2. Subscription options: I want an introductory offer where new members sign up to a reduced rate for their first year, but to pay monthly. This will allow me to increase the rate after the first year. Is this possible with Paid Memberships Pro?

    3. I’m having trouble testing my site, as I can only log on as 1 user (admin). I want to be able to view the site as a visitor, a free member and a paid member. Is there a way of doing this with Paid Memberships Pro?

    I look forward to some advice.

    Sorry for the delay, I’ve been away from the WP forums here. RE your questions:

    1. You can have a free and paid level. I’m not very familiar with any Q/A plugins, but you should be able to link PMPro to them with a little bit of custom code.

    2. You could use a trial period for this. Outside of trial payments, PMPro does not allow you to increase the membership amount for existing members (this is a restriction with most gateways).

    3. Even admin accounts will not have access to content on the frontend if they don’t have a membership level. You need to edit your account and change your level. You can create dummy accounts as well to test. We recommend that.

    Good luck.
