Q. What does .PROCESSING mean when viewing members?

A. The processing records are Members that paid, but never filled out the form to create their account.
The process is, they pay first, and then afterwards go to the join page to create their account.
When they pay, the processing record is created, and then when they fill out the form, it is populated with their information.
If they pay, but never fill out the form, then they will show up as processing until they create their account.
With these records, you should send them to the join page to finish creating their account.

Don't try to edit the processing records yourself by putting in their information
(the processing account is missing several things and needs to go through the join process),
instead, fill out the form on the join page using the same email that shows for processing.

Q. How do I have it redirect directly to the create account page from PayPal without it requiring them to click a button to proceed?

A. With PayPal, after a person pays, they are required to click a button (that is not noticable to many people) to continue back to your site to finish the join process.  This can cause many people to get stuck in the PROCESSING mode.  With PayPal, you can have it to automatically redirect to your website after payment so the person is not required to click on a button to proceed.  To do this, you must turn this on within your PayPal account.

Q. Should I get a security certification for my site?

A. If you will be accepting payments with First Data or Authorize.net, then yes we advise getting an SSL certificate, and you very likely could be required to get one anyways.

If not using either of those payment processors for this software, then it is not required but still can be beneficial.  There are other benefits of having SSL such as a slight SEO boost with Google and a more secure members area.  Between the certificate and installation fees it costs over $50-100/yr to have SSL.

Q. When creating account (membership not free) is it suspended immediately after creating or after 24h?

A. A member is suspended when their payment is canceled.  Our software is notified by an IPN when a subscription is canceled and the member is suspended immediately.  There is a setting that can be turned on to have them suspended when their next payment would have been due, but by default this is turned off, and this should be used carefully because it will suspend anyone that doesn't have a payment record.

Q. How do I set the site so only paying members can use it?

A. When logged into the WMT Client admin go to "Advanced Features" (a blue icon located on the page of your site).

Then, change "Software Is Free" by clicking on the red switch so it becomes a green switch.

Save changes.
