Support » Plugin: Paid Memberships Pro » Recurring Free Memberships

  • Resolved ammbo


    I have a free membership level. When users go to the /membership-account/membership-billing page, they are presented with a message that their membership is not recurring so they do not have to update billing info. I want the free level to be recurring but I am unable to save that option in the backend. Is there a workaround for this issue? Is the message that users see actually wrong?

    Additionally, is there a hook for automatic renewals? My site needs to update a separate database whenever subscriptions renew. I do this with a Stripe webhook for paid memberships, but the free level does not go through Stripe.

  • Hi ammbo,

    Users will have the FREE membership for the time length you specify but because they are not paying for a subscription, a free membership cannot be recurring. Only paid subscriptions can be recurring.

    I hope that makes sense.

    With regards to a separate database – only paid members will show in the orders list.

    Thanks Lisa, that makes sense. I’ll modify the message that appears on the account page for free accounts, it is a bit misleading.

    As for the separate database, I’ll add a cron that fires on free accounts’ monthly anniversaries.
