In this tutorial we will be building a multiple membership level website. With our Paid Membership Pro integration, you will have the option to create multiple membership levels and map them to the different pricing options of your product. For example you can create Bronze, Silver and Gold levels on different price and provide different content to your customers.
To get started I will assume you already have your website ready and the ThriveCart integration complete with out WordPress plugin.
To get started let’s install Paid Membership Pro. To do so, navigate to the WordPress admin panel and choose the “Add new” option under Plugins. Type in “Paid Membership Pro” in the search field and install it.
After activation we can start by creating the first membership level.
For this test, let’s create a “Yearly subscription” level. After the tile, give it a description if needed and set a Billing information if you wish to allow your users to down / upgrade between the levels.
You can also disable this as an option when they see the available membership levels. Please note, you do not need to show any levels as options to your users, this is optional 🙂
After this, create as many lelevs as you need, but keep in mind that a ThriveCart checkout page has a maximum of four pricing options.
When we are done with the membership levels, we can create the different pages that can be used with Paid Membership Pro in our website.
Before we move to the next step, make sure to set your Email settings too! These should be the same what you have set in the White label options in Cart2WP…
Next, we will need to install the Cart2WP – Paid Membership Pro add-on. Download it from your members area and install it as a plugin on your website.
After activation, navigate to the Cart2WP settings page and you will see that there is a new settings tab available for Paid Membership Pro.
It may sound tricky but this is an easy step too. We will need to copy and paste in the name of the pricing option and assign a membership level to it 🙂
Open a new browser tab and navigate to your ThriveCart product (if available in test mode already). Edit the pricing options and on the second stage it will give you the option to set a name for that particular pricing option. Copy this and paste it into the field where we ask for this and use the dropdown menu to assign a membership level to this pricing option:
Repeat this procedure for as many times as needed and hit the save button.
Your cart is now connected to your membership packages, make sure to test it as well! When you do the test purchase, you will see that the new user has the correct membership level assigned to it.
Next, you will need to add some styling to your website and create the content you wish to protect under the different membership packages.
