I’m currently using the free version of S2Member and am considering upgrading to the paid version, but there is one major problem that is putting me off.
I want to be able to have open registration so that anyone can register and become a level 0 member. At that level I have defined that they can only get access to the first 5 videos in the course I am offering. If they want to see the rest they have to upgrade to level 1. There is also an upsell to level 2, which gives access to an additional 10 videos. Upgrading to level 1 or 2 is done through Paypal Standard.
My problem is that at the free level I want to give people 14 days to check out the videos and make a decision to upgrade or not. At the end of the 14 days I want S2Member to drop these people (they can be deleted). However, there seems to be no way to automatically do this. All the EOT stuff seems to be controlled either by Paypal or by over-riding the Paypal stuff by setting it in the profile for a member.
As my free members aren’t going through Paypal the automated EOT won’t work. I really don’t want to be going into each members profile after they sign up and setting the EOT for each one manually. That’s just not practical. And besides, even if I was able to do that I am under the impression that if the free member subsequently signed up (paid), then despite that, the EOT set in their profile would still ‘end’ them.
It seems very basic and straightforward what I am trying to do (14 days free to a limited range of videos, then cancelled at the end of 14 days, unless they pay for full membership), but I can see no way of doing this with S2Member.
Can it do it? Have I missed something obvious?
