Add Product Now Shows As "add New Membership"
Posted 12 March 2014 - 10:47 AM
I just tried to add exhibit space and event sponsors products for an upcoming event. When I selected "Add Product", "Add New Membership" came up. I don't want to add a membership, I want to add products.
Once the Membership plugin is added, does everything become a membership?
Does iThemes have plans to differentiate membership sales and other products in Exchange?
It looks like, the way it is now, I will need to get rid of the Exchange Memberships plugin and add a plugin like s2Member in order to keep products and memberships separate.
I'm beginning to think that adding membership sales to Exchange is something that has not been thought out. If it can't be fixed to also sell products, I will have to deactivate and delete the Exchange Memberships plugin. This will make the 2nd time I've had to do this due to limitations of Exchange and the Membership plugin.

Having the Membership add-on enabled does not turn all product types to Memberships.
If you have multiple product types enabled, in your menu, you'll see all the product types listed:
If you hit the "Add New" link at the top of the "All Products" page, it will start creating the last product type you created. So, if you just created a Membership Product, that's what it will bring up when you hit Add New. Or, if you've just created a Physical Product, it will start creating a Physical Product when you hit the link. It doesn't mean you can only create Membership products.
Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Here's what I need to do:
- Set up an Exhibit Space product for $550.
- Set up "Special Events" sponsorships with varying costs (each sponsorship is an individual product).
- Enable payment for both the Exhibit Space and the sponsorship, combined for one payment
Thanks for your help.

You do not need to create a physical product. If you're seeing the Forever/Monthly/Yearly options, that means you have the Recurring Payments add-on installed and activated. You do not have to charge them monthly or yearly. If you want it to be a one time fee, just leave it on the "Forever" option. Or you can deactivate and remove the Recurring Payments plugin.
If you're wanting to allow customers to purchase multiple products at once, you can go into Exchange > Add-ons and enable the Multi-item Cart add-on. So you can create an Exhibit Space product and a Special Events product (or products) and they can purchase both using the cart option.

If I turn off Recurring payments, will this also disable the membership term of one year from date of purchase? We need to be able to keep up with memberships, so that people can be notified when their membership is going to expire.

If you want the membership to end after a year, you'll leave Recurring Payments activated and select the Yearly option next to the price. Then, after a year, the membership will expire. It will not recur automatically unless you set it to do so by clicking the icon to the left. If it's grey, it will not recur automatically. If it's green, it will recur automatically.
