When someone who already has an account on my site signs up for recurring payments, is the only way for their current username to get upgraded if they are already logged in as that user?
And if they are not already logged in as the username the already have for my site, will they then HAVE to create a new user to gain access to the protected materials?
I saw another ticket about this, and the only answer said this is what had to be done. It seems very tricky though because it’s a lot to expect of the users signing up. I would much rather find a seamless solution that didn’t require the user to make so many steps before subscribing.
Is there any other way for them to upgrade their current user role if they were not logged in when they went through PayPal? Is there anything in the Pro version that would solve this?
I read something in the ‘Getting Started’ about a ‘Modification Button’. Would this be my solution? And if so, can anyone please explain to me how to do it? I wasn’t able to find anything about modification buttons in the buttons tab of the settings!
What’s happening is that I’m using this on a WooCommerce site, so a lot of the people signing up already have a role of customer on my site. When they sign-up for the subscription, it’s not updating their current role.
Any thoughts or advice would be very helpful, thank you so much!
