Hi Raam great article you provided at http://www.s2member.com/kb/how-to-migrate-to-s2member-pro-from-other-software/
Let me ask you this, you mentioned “If the exported data from the other software contains expiration dates for each account…” my question is: what about if it does not?
Do I actually need it? Basically in general terms at the moment people subscribes the membership program tells paypal that starting that date they’ll charge X amount in Y frequency so it is paypal the responsible for the recurrent payment so why will I actually need this info for?
Can’t I just import them with no ‘expiration date’ ? At the end, paypal doesn’t know I changed the software controlling access to my content and they’ll just keep charging whenever the time is right, right?
In a broader scenario: What are the alternatives here?
Let me get you this scenario, let’s say that my only membership level is for monthly basis. I guess I could just set up any date to be the expiration date and us the same for everyone on the site (let’s say everyone expires on the 30th of each month) and probably somehow just setup an initial grace period like ie: 1 month free for everyone.
How will that work on regards to whatever date paypal say they expire? Not sure if it’ll be save just to do it without grace period and when (or if) someone contact complaining they couldn’t get in just manually change the date for those (hopefully few) affected?
