Most membership sites are based upon a model in which memberships always EXPIRE eventually (unless extended)

Can the Membership add-on for iThemes Exchange be used to enforce a somewhat different model?

One of my clients would like to build a membership-site through which to selling training material, and grant LIFETIME access to each particular training course that a given customer has purchased. For example, a given customer might currently have lifetime access to courses “A”, “B”, and “E” — but not (yet) to “C”, “D”, and “F” — which he has not yet purchased.

Would this be possible using iThemes Exchange and the Membership add-on?

Hi Yosi,

With Exchange and the Membership add-on, the membership product you create (and the associated restricted content) will belong to the customer forever once they purchase it.  If you do want to restrict the membership so that it only lasts a month or a year, you can use the Recurring Payments add-on.  

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks,

Elise

So, are you saying that the DEFAULT mode of membership is actually "lifetime" -- which is exactly what my particular client is looking for -- but that, in addition, you also support the "expiring" mode?

If so, the only issue which is still not 100% clear to me is: does Exchange+Membership allow a given member to simultaneously have *multiple* memberships in effect?  In the context of my original question, that would mean: could a given customer have active "memberships" for courses “A”, “B”, and “E”?  (But not for “C”, “D”, and “F” — which he has not yet purchased?)

Hi Yosi,

Yes, the default for a membership purchase is forever or lifetime.  Then, with the Recurring Payments add-on,  you can make it so that the membership would expire after a month or year.

A customer can purchase multiple memberships.  If you have memberships A through F, a customer can purchase memberships A, B, C and F and would only have access to the content associated with those memberships.

Let us know if you have any other questions.  

Thanks,

Elise
