In this manual we describe how to use recurring payments with MemberPress via the Pronamic Pay plugin.
Note: We assume you already installed the Pronamic Pay plugin and connected it to a payment provider. If not, please follow the Getting started with Pronamic Pay manual.
Note: Recurring payments is only possible with the payment provider Mollie.
Starting a subscription is possible with the following payment methods:
- SEPA Direct debit (mandate via Bancontact)
- SEPA Direct debit (mandate via iDEAL)
- SEPA Direct debit (mandate via Sofort)
Setting-up MemberPress subscription
Step-by-step manual to setup a MemberPress subscription via Pronamic Pay.
- Go to Memberships
Go to WordPress Dashboard » MemberPress » Memberships.
- Create a new subscription
Create your new subscription with its own name and description.
- Go to Membership Terms
Go to the Membership Terms (mostly on the right hand side of the page.
Name your price for the recurring payments.
- Billing Type
Select the opion ‘Recurring’ as billing type.
Select the interval of the recurring payments.
- Limit Payment Cycles
If you want to limit the number of recurring payment you can select this option and set a maximum number of payments and condition for access.
Note: When the Mollie-configuration is set to ‘Test’ mode, the recurring payments for “Direct debit (mandate via..)” will never get status ‘Complete’ but only ‘Pending’. To test the setup we advise to use the creditcard payment method.
View subscriptions and payments
All subscriptions which are made via our plugin are available via WordPress Dashboard » Pay » Subscriptions. All payments – including recurring payments – are available via WordPress Dashboard » Pay » Payments. If a payment is related to a subscription it shows an extra icon:
- Blue recurring icon for the first payment (to setup recurring payments);
- Grey recurring icon for all recurring payment which are made automatically.
When viewing a subscription, all payments created for that specific subscription are also shown. If there are any problems with a payment, the payment can be viewed and an explanation for the status of the payment may be given in the “Log” box.
