Pronamic Pay 8.3: MemberPress update

Pronamic Pay 8.3 update

Pronamic Pay version 8.3 has recently been launched. This release is largely focused on MemberPress. A feature that has been requested a lot is the ability to adjust subscription prices. We have added that in this version.

Adjust subscription prices

MemberPress is a popular plugin for WordPress to create a membership website. For example, you can give access to paid content or offer online courses.

We understand from several MemberPress users that they occasionally change the subscription prices on their website. For example, an annual membership comes at a slightly higher price. The adjustment of the subscription itself is easy to arrange in MemberPress itself. However, for existing subscribers, the new amount must be set manually.

As of version 8.3, the amount of the subscription in Pronamic Pay is automatically updated when the price is changed in a user's MemberPress subscription. A major improvement for website owners, which ensures that price changes are automatically processed. In contrast to links provided by MemberPress such as PayPal and Stripe, where the price also has to be processed manually. After which the amount to be collected is actually adjusted.

NB: In some situations you do want users to agree to the new prices again. For example, if you make an unannounced or major price change, subscribers cannot accept that. Which can result in an expensive chargeback. In our view, it is therefore wise to inform your subscribers in advance if you change your prices.

Subscription and Payment Statuses

A second optimization in support with MemberPress is the addition of the subscription status and the date of the next payment when editing a subscription in MemberPress. Also when viewing/editing a transaction in MemberPress, the status of the payment is now listed.

Use the latest version

If you use MemberPress, update to the latest version of Pronamic Pay. The most stable version of our plugin and with best integration for MemberPress. In addition to these updates, a number of minor optimizations have been made in general. So update, so you can be sure you're using the best solution.
