How it Works

This Add On enables a new section on the Membership Checkout page to allow a member to select whether to purchase a recurring subscription or just a single membership term. For example, if your level has an initial payment of $10 and a recurring subscription of $10 per month, the member can select to simply purchase the level for $10 for a single month or to purchase the monthly subscription.

Admins can adjust whether to allow automatic renewals per level on the Memberships > Settings > Levels > Edit Level page.

Important Notes

Paid Memberships Pro has built-in membership extension logic for all users that renew their fixed-term membership. This means that if a member has a fixed 1 year membership on your site that expires in 14 days, they can check out for the same plan and extend their membership one year PLUS 14 days from now. No custom code is required for this to work.

If a member with expiration in 14 days renews their membership and selects automatic renewals using this Add On’s options at checkout, their membership and renewal date will begin immediately with no “extension”.

To allow members to preserve their payment date, please explore using the Proration Add On.
