Registration process

Users are registered in Packages provided by theme and managed from Theme Options. Each package might have set different capabilities to manage Items, different price (required is one of our payments plugin like PayPal Payments or Stripe Payments…), time expiration and ability to use information related to Item Posts.
Users are registered with the role according to selected Package during registration.

  • In case of charged package, user stays registered as Subscriber until payment isn’t processed and PayPal (or other compatible payment gateway from our portfolio) send to the system notification about correctly processed payment. Consequently, the user role is changed automatically from Subscriber to the role with name of Package. If user do not process payment (or leave paymant page), he is still registered as Subscriber and after login he can select Package again – process for payment is repeated again.
  • If is used Bank Transfer payment method, all management about payment is in hands of website administrator. User stays registered as Subscriber too, until website administrator receive payment and manually set Role according to package for which user pay.

After successfull registration process is user always redirected to the homepage with notification message displayed in header of website. In case of payments, you can select in Theme Options page where is user redirected after successfull or unsuccessfuly payment process – more information are available in documentation of appropriate payments plugin.

Manage Packages for Users

All created Packages are available from Theme Options. You can create unlimited number of Packages and select wanted capabilities for users.

Email notifications available in options will notify your users via email before expiration of their account. You can specify the time in days to allow users renew their account before expiration. If user doesn’t renew the subscription, the account role is going to be downgraded back to Subscriber automatically.
