  1. Automatic mail drip

    I'm using the WooCommerce Membership extension: it's working great. Easy to config and all.

    The only thing that is missing is a way to inform customers that new content has been unlocked for them.

    Now. i think i have to buy an extra plugin to create that functionality. It's a hassle to find out what works best with this plugin.

    I had expected the mailing was done by this plugin.

    Please help.

    Thanks,
    Bas

    • WooCommerce Memberships: Improved Exporting Member Info

      Update 1.6 was a good start. Thanks!

      I like to also see the member's email address, address and phone number in the exported CSV file. It would also be nice if the phone number is listed with the address when I go to WooCommerce > Memberships and click a member's name.

      We also pay for Checkout Field Editor. It would be great if Memberships and the export feature could also have the option of including the additional fields from the checkout page.

      I run a non-profit and we use Memberships to track members of each of our programs. The exported…

      • Membership length under 24 hours

        Currently the shortest membership access period is 24 hours but it would be useful in many cases to allow access for a much shorter period, maybe 2 hours or 1 hour etc.

        For example, you may offer access to a particular page or custom post for 2 hours but someone with access up to 24 hours can view the page for an entire day once they have the membership option to do so.

        If it's a trial of some sort (e.g access to gaming content) or access to one hour of viewing content then the membership restriction capability is limited…

        • Calculate membership discounts whilst making manual orders.

          Creating specific membership discounts for specific categories or individual products is fantastic, why on earth aren't they connected to manual orders created by shop admins??? in the back-end.

          Having the ability to process numerous orders for a shop with many unique discounts manually in the back end is a major game changer... Please vote this up!

          If you have many unique discounts it is inconvenient to look them up and apply an overall discount to the customer's shopping basket, the Membership extension is there, it serves the customers well, let's make it serve the shop managers also :)

          • Local content restriction mode (ie. Non Global)

            Currently, the content restriction mode is a sitewide setting. So, there is no way to have page redirection set for one page, and a custom message set for another page.

            Ideally this would be determined on a per page basis.

            • Email members

              WooCommerce membership has no way of sending emails to members. You have to purchase the email followup plugin in order to be able to do that, but this plugin is a pain to have installed.

              You could hav a list on an autoresponder which you maintain manually but this is not a good solution as well since users / members can simply unsubscribe.

              There really should be a way to send an email to all members with a specific membership.

              WishList member has this feature, memberpress etc.

              It really should be a feature of the plugin, what is the point…

              • Enable category and product discounts to be applied separately

                At the moment when you apply a discount to a category and then apply a discount to a product within that category the discounts are applied on top of each other.

                This doesn't work if you want a particular product within the category to have a lesser discount than the overall category discount.

                Please add the ability to specify that the product discount should be applied instead of the category discount.

                • Add restriction rules for specific dates

                  The shortcode allows access based on a hard date, would love if the general restriction rules allowed that as well.

                  Currently "Specific a time" in the overall restriction rules only allows for RELATIVE times, ie 1 day, 2 weeks, 3 months etc.

                  For timed online programs, it'd be great to set certain pages to be available on specific hard coded dates. IE so everyone in our may class gets access to something on May 17th, just like the hard date delay function.

                  • Memberships

                    Ability to secure downloadable files without needing a product. Example: a club might want to publish AGM papers and minutes to members only, by providing a secured page with links to the files. Even if the link to the file is on a secured page, getting hold of the link means a non-member can see the file because the file itself is not secured. Setting up a free downloadable product is extremely clunky for this application, and doesn't give the opportunity for text around the links.

                    • Restrict access based on bookings

                      Woocommerce Memberships works well with woocommerce bookings but it would be great if site administrators had the option to grant/restrict content based on a booking being present in the calendar or not for virtual products.

                      So for example if you have a booking for Jan 5th 2017th to take an online course for example then the user can be granted access to the page. If no one has paid for a booking then the page will remain restricted.

                      • Membership Login Shortcode

                        I'd love to see a member login shortcode that I could place in a widget or a template for member-specific pages. This would allow quick access to hidden content without first having to be redirected to the "My Account" page to log in.

                        Right now, I'm using Mike Jolley's Sidebar Login plugin, which is great, but it hasn't been updated in a couple of years, and it's more Wordpress-focused than Woo memberships.

                        How 'bout a login widget that's designed specifically for members to make navigation even easier?

                        • WooCommerce Memberships Date/Time

                          Hopefully, this is a trivial modification to the current Restrict Content "specify a time" feature. Currently, the "specify a time" feature only supports "specify a delay" and "specify a date". I need to "specify a time" as in a date AND time.

                          This is so that content and products can be launched at a scheduled date/time. This is also to coordinate with newsletter delivery and so on.

                          • Free Trial Without Recurring Payment (for memberships)

                            I would love the ability to have a free trial of a membership without recurring payments. So, once a user ends the free trial and completes payment they own the product forever. Currently the only way to do this that I'm aware of is to use WC Subscriptions and have a subscription last only one period, with an 'unlimited' membership tied to the subscription product. But this is an awkward way to make this work, and adds all kinds of wording that infers recurring payments and subscriptions that is bad UX for the customer, and needs to be removed (ideally)…

                            • Change the Membership Drip Functionality for Downloads

                              Currently with memberships drip, you have the ability to allow access to products over time. This may work well for a learning type of site, but when you are selling software, it fails. Someone may need a piece of software right away, but the current system sets when they can get it. So, a customer would be disappointed if the get a membership expecting the software right away, only to find out they have to wait 3 months before they have access. That would create unnecessary refunds and chargebacks.

                              • Limit individual memberships to 1 per user.

                                Logged in members can purchase the membership over and over again. This is not ideal as it creates repeated emails to admins and users.

                                • Add and remove users from facebook group if possible

                                  I dont know if it is possible. But it would be cool if you could add or remove users from a facebook group when the user signs up for a membership or the membership expires.

                                  I know that buddypress is getting all the votes, but honestly the trend seams to be that all community features of websites are moved to facebook groups these days.

                                  Forums / buddypress etc are a dying breed these days, so it seams.

                                  • "Memberships" – allow customers/users to APPLY to become a member

                                    As far as I can see, the only way for customers to become 'members' is to buy a qualifying product, or for an administrator to manually add them.

                                    I would LOVE there to be a way that customers could APPLY to become a member of something. Perhaps with some kind of form integration. They could complete a membership application and their request could be reviewed by email and either be accepted or rejected.

                                    We're a non-profit, but we run a online store and events through WooCommerce. We already have a number of ways this functionality would help us streamline. It…

                                    • Membership Plan End on a Specific Date Each Year (e.g. Dec 31)

                                      Currently a membership plan can end after a specific length of time say one year from purchase, or the membership can be set to start and end on a specific date. But that date needs to not be specific to the year it was purchased. Memberships that run on a calendar year should end on December 31, then members must purchase the membership again on January 1. However, currently once all the memberships expire, new memberships must be created, or the dates for each membership have to be adjusted to the next year and everyone's membership has to be manually…

                                      • Allow different membership plans for team members

                                        Allow different membership plans within one team membership plan. This would allow team leaders to have a higher level of membership access as a part of their team's subscription.

                                        This could be done by giving the ability to manually override the membership plan for individuals within a team from the back end on Teams for WooCommerce Memberships.

                                        This could also be a more complex front end solution where the team account manager designates which team members receive higher levels of access. Memberships would be set to have a certain number allowed of each plan type within the team.

                                        • WooCommerce Memberships: Add Memerbship Length option to Follow Status Of Other Plan

                                          I would like to see a new option added under the MEMBERSHIP LENGTH of a plan that is called FOLLOW STATUS OF OTHER MEMBERSHIP PLAN.

                                          A membership plan with this option chosen, would simply have it's status changed to whatever status the other connected membership plan changes too.

                                          EXAMPLE: Customer John buys a monthly subscription which grants him access to Membership Plan GOLD. John is such a good customer, that I manually assign him access to Membership Plan BONUS. The BONUS plan is set to Follow Status of the GOLD plan.
                                          If John decides to cancel his subscription to the…
