I am using Membership Pro, with Paypal (sandbox) and off line for testing purposes. I have both working where they take the payment and return to my site, but I cannot find how to change the members status of enabled and active from x to on.
I manually must go to the subscriber screen and click the 2 buttons on and then they work.
How or where do I set this to be done once the payment is completed?
While this is a development site, the site off line status is set off, so it is open to the general net. I did not see any options in the paypal payment settings that allowed me to set this functions subscription status to active, like in the offline payment function. But that function also keeps the user blocked when i return to look at the membership status.
I am sure I am doing something wrong or missing a simple step. just can't seem to find what I am missing. Thanks steve
You need to set your site online public accessible for the system to work. So in short:
1. Your site needs to be in online mode, not offline
2. Your site needs to be accessible from outside (for example, not on local computer or in an intranet)
The reason is because when users make payment, PayPal needs to notify Membership Pro about the payment. So if your site is not accessible, Membership Pro won't be notified and the status of the subscription will remain Pending, not active
