Are there any ongoing fees for WishList Member™?

Answer: No. WishList Member™ (the software) is a one-time purchase. You’ll also receive ongoing support at no extra cost. However, if you would like unlimited updates after the initial year from your purchase date, there is a $47/year charge. But if you don’t want updates after the initial year, there are absolutely no ongoing fees.

Is WishList Member™ compatible with the latest version of WordPress?

Answer: Absolutely. WishList Member™ is thoroughly tested to ensure it functions with the latest version of WordPress.

What are the optimal server settings and requirements?

Answer: The latest versions of WishList Member™ require that PHP 5.2 be installed on the server as well as WordPress 3.0+. We also recommend as much as possible to avoid cheap “shared hosting” environments as they can prove to be an issue once you start getting a large number of members in your site (500+).

What is the difference between a Single Site and a Multi-Site License?

Answer: A Single Site License can be installed in one location. A Multi-Site License can be installed on as many (unlimited) personal URLs that the license owner wants.The Multi-Site License also comes with additional Bonuses such as 2 themes, an icon set and more.

I'm a designer/developer, do you have a commercial license?

Answer: We do offer Commercial License packages. They are sold in either 5 or 10 license blocks. This means the purchaser would have 5 or 10 separate license keys. This way when a license is sold, each of YOUR clients can have their own license key registered to their domain. They are sold as follows: 5 Site Commercial License = $300 10 Site Commercial License = $500

WishList Member™ also offers SIMPLE integration options that will work with ALL payment providers. However, with SIMPLE integration, if a user cancels payment or doesn’t pay for some reason, the site admin will have to manually cancel the member within WishList Member™. With FULL integration, the cancelation process is handled automatically by WishList Member™.

Is it possible to drip content to Members?

Answer: Yes. You can accomplish this by setting up a membership level for each area of your site you want to move people to. Then after a set period of time you can move people from one level to another automatically using the “Sequential Upgrade” features built into WishList Member™. With this method, the member can only access the content within the Membership Level they currently have access to and will gain access to the upcoming content once they are upgraded to the next Membership Level.

Is there a way to confirm each new member before granting access?

Answer: Yes. A registration can set so that the site admin must approve a registration BEFORE they gain access to content. A registration can also be set so that an email is automatically sent to the user requiring them to confirm their registration BEFORE they gain access to protected content. Both of these scenarios are optional.
