This Add On adds an additional field to the Edit Level and Edit Discount Code settings pages in the WordPress admin. You can use this field to set a specific expiration date. Instead of setting an expiration like “Expires in 30 days,” you can set the level to “Expire on 2021-12-31”.


  1. Plus and Unlimited members can install the add on via the Memberships > Add Ons admin page.
  2. Or, download the plugin file and upload the pmpro-set-expiration-dates directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your site.
  3. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in the WordPress admin.


When editing a Membership Level or Discount Code, you will see a new “Set Expiration Date” section and “Expiration Date” field.

  1. Navigate to Memberships > Settings > Levels and select a level to edit. Or, navigate to Memberships > Settings > Discount Codes and select a code to edit.
  2. Check the box labeled “Check this to set when membership access expires.”
  3. Set the expiration date based on the typical membership period (for example: 1 month).
  4. Then, use the “Set Expiration Date” field to override the default period. There are 2 main ways you can use this field.
    • Enter a specific date in the format YYYY-MM-DD to begin the subscription. This is useful for courses that have a specific enrollment period and group start date.
    • Enter a date that is automatically calculated based on their signup date using the a combination of integers and placeholders for year (Y), month (M), and day (D). This is useful if you’d like to have membership expire in a very specific term, regardless of their signup date. For example, to have all subscriptions expire on the first day of the following year, enter the following: Y2-01-01. Or, to have all subscription expires on the first day of the following month, enter Y1-M2-01.
