The Approvals Add On allows you to set up a unique approval or application process for your membership site. After a member signs up, the admin will have the ability to approve their membership or deny the application.

The diagram below explains how approval fits into the standard membership checkout process.

How it Works

Using the add on, you can set your membership levels to require approval with a few options. Not only can you set a level to require approval, you can also set a level to require an approved membership from another level in order to complete checkout.

This allows you to offer a two-step membership application and full membership registration model. You can place an application fee on the application level, and then charge your full recurring membership fee on the primary membership for approved members. Extend your site further by using fields add via the Register Helper Add On to gather member information that will help you decide whether to approve or deny the membership.

Thank you for adding this feature. It really opens up how I can use your application for my company.

Yes love this feature! I’ve been doing it in an ad hoc way. But bulk approval or membership change would be nice. Sometimes we get 100 members a day.

Noted the feature request for bulk approvals. We want to at least make the approval button execute via AJAX saving a page load.

This is a great addon so we can approve or deny access, however,

There does seem to be errors with this addon.
See this topic for errors etc
https://www.paidmembershipspro.com/forums/topic/approval-pending-email/

emails addressed to wrong person. Admin and User swapped.
No email to edit in the Email Templates area etc etc

Wondering if this is a quick fix to correct these.

Just bought the paid version. I used the approval addon but no luck.
Will it not work if using the buddypress registration form?

look forward to hearing from you.

Hello,

We have this installed and recently registered a user with a particular level on our account that requires “Admin approval”. In the meantime, this user should not be able to access areas of the website (at least not logically by its concept). A user who is pending approval should have restrictions on their accounts.

That said, this particular level is allowed BuddyPress access. However we want this to be restricted until the account has been approved by the admin. Is this not possible with this addon? If so, than how do we achieve this?
