Migrating existing Stripe subscriptions from old website to s2


I think s2members is an awesome plugin. Everything works beautifully. :slight_smile:

My question is about how to proceed on two issues:

  1. I moved an old membership site to WordPress and s2. The old site was custom and used Stripe, so all of the users we moved have current Stripe subscriptions. How do I connect the new site to the existing subscriptions? I’m thinking that I should set a manual EOT so the users get a notification email to renew their subscriptions. Once renewed, they continue on as normal. Is there a better way to handle this?

  2. We’d like to offer the first 14 days of a subscription for free. I want my user to get the EOT reminder email before the 14 day period is up, but the way I understand EOT, I don’t think the EOT notice will be triggered, because technically it’s not set to expire, but rather it’s just going to trigger the recurring payment. Is there a way to trigger a reminder email before the trial expires?

I hope my questions make sense. Please advise on the best way to proceed if possible.

On (1), what you are proposing is definitely the way to go.

On (2), I’d suggest using the s2Emails plugin: see s2Emails - Send Automated Emails and Renewal Reminders and http://s2emails.com/

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your quick reply. I think this will work perfectly.
