This query relates to what’s needed to implement a registration form with Paypal. This is vague I know, but I’m new to s2member.
I’ve recently got my organisation to purchase s2member Pro, and I’ve installed it ok on our WordPress installation (currently under development) after having played with the free version. I’ve also set up buyer and seller accounts in the Paypal sandbox. Our organisation currently uses PayPal Website Payments Standard, not Pro.
A current major headache for our membership secretary is that subscribers to our existing non-WP site will click on a PayPal button on the Join page, pay their sub, then the secretary will just receive a bare email that someone has paid, but she often doesn’t know who so has to chase that up by emailing the subscriber. So we would like the subscriber to fill out a form before or after s/he pays so that we know who s/he is. We would also like to add some custom fields to the registration form (eg institution, occupation).
My general question is: what’s the best way to go about this?
Sorry, I’m still not being very clear. I’ve got our requirements but am still not sure as to how to implement them. I’ve had a look some forum threads under the tag ‘registration’ which were useful, and have watched the first four videos on s2member. I’ve not implemented a membership site before and if I mess it up it could be costly, so I want to get it sorted out using the Sandbox before we go live in a month or so.
I’m happy to be pointed to relevant pages in The Fine Manual, and/or to relevant videos.
