Q. How can we upgrade members to another membership when they send us payment manually?
Go to "Members
" then find the Member that you want to change the membership for and click on their membership
It will give you a list of available memberships that you can click on to change the membership.
After that, click the billing link
on the right side and enter in the amount you received there.
Entering the billing amount is not needed if you are not paying commissions.If using direct payment the process is different.
You would still change their membership, but instead of clicking on billing to enter the amount
you will click on the amount column
that appears next to the username and enter it there.NOTE: You will need to click the red suspended link to unsuspend them if they are suspended.

Q. Why is it that when an existing member upgrades their account it creates a new PROCESSING record for them?
If they upgrade on the order page, and then if they pay with a different email other than the one under their account it will create a PROCESSING record for them.
A special order page can be setup where it requires them to be logged in to view it and then this issue will not occur.
When this happens, you should delete the PROCESSING record and add the billing record to the original Member account.
Q. How do I fix it when a member upgrades and it creates new PROCESSING record instead of associating the payment with the existing member?
When logged in as the admin go to "View Members
Then, find the new PROCESSING record and click 'Billing
' and copy the billing details (including transaction id
After copying, delete the billing record. Find the original Member record and click on 'Billing' and add a new billing record with the details copied from the PROCESSING one.
By copying the transaction id it will ensure that future payments will apply to the correct account.
By adding the billing record it will make sure any commissions earned are applied that night when commission payments are calculated.
