The Fixed Period Membership Add-On allows your Subscriptions to end at a specific date, no matter when a client subscribes to them.
Install the Fixed Period Membership Add-on
Fixed Period Membership is a Basic add-on, available with a Paid Member Subscriptions Basic or Pro license only.
After purchasing a premium version of Paid Member Subscriptions, the .zip file will be available for download under your account page by clicking the version Download button.
Once downloaded, you can install the premium version as a normal WordPress plugin, by uploading the .zip file in your WordPress Admin -> Plugins -> Add New -> Upload Plugin.
Alternatively, you can install the premium version by extracting the folder found inside the archive and uploading the entire folder via FTP to your /wp-content/plugins folder found inside your WordPress install.
How to use the add-on
The add-on adds in the subscription plan settings the ‘Fixed Membership’ checkbox that needs to be checked in order to enable Fixed Period Memberships.
Once the ‘Fixed Membership’ checkbox is checked, the ‘Duration’ field disappears and the following two fields become visible:
– ‘Expiration Date’: the date when the subscription plan will expire for all users, regardless of when they subscribed. It needs to be a date in the future.
– ‘Allow plan to be renewed’: when checked, the ‘Renewal’ options will appear and the possibility for yearly recurring subscriptions can be selected accordingly.
