Multiple Subscriptions Level Groups
After you install and activate the Multiple Subscriptions per User add-on you will be able to setup different Subscription Level Groups.
In our case the Math Course Gold Subscription Plan represents a Level Group and the Physics Course Gold Subscription Plans represents another Level Group.
The Subscription Level Group can contain one Subscription Plan or Multiple Subscription Plans.
Subscribing to Multiple Subscriptions Plans
At Registration users will be able to select and purchase only 1 Subscription Plan from a specific Subscription Level Group. In our case the user can purchase a Subscription Plan from the Psychics Group of from the Math group.
The user will be able to view the purchased Subscription Plan, after login, inside his Account.
Logged in users will be able to purchase another Subscription Plan from the other group if they go to the List of Subscription Plans page where you added the [pms-subscriptions] shortcode.
In our case, at Registration, we Subscribed to the “Physics Course Gold” Subscription Plan and now we want to purchase the “Math Course Silver” Subscription Plan.
This is how the Account looks like after the user purchased the “Math Course Silver” Subscription Plan.
