Best way to hook WSO to membership site?

5 replies
What's the best way to hook a WSO to a membership site? Is it as simple as using wso plus or JVzoo and then setting the paypal ipn to the ipn page that s2member or other software sets up? How is the best way to manage passwords? What's worked for you?

Thank you very much - I'm really trying to get this right, and its my first wso.

    I don't have a WSO related to a membership site, but I am part owner of MySurfBiz.com and we sell using JVZoo.

    We use the EZ Membership script.

    It's ok for sales as JVZoo keeps track of affiliates and passes back IPN information regarding each sale, but at the moment we are having trouble getting referrer information consistently from JVZoo. Not sure if we are doing something wrong, so have put in a ticket at JVZoo and am awaiting a reply.

    The way that allows you to move from stuck to OPEN for business.

    Pretty much, yeah. See, you've done all the right homework already!

    How is the best way to manage passwords?
    Most scripts let you set up a default password that all new users get, to be changed once they've logged in the first time. That's as much a pain in the ass in terms of support as auto-generating them IME, so I let the systems create the passwords automatically.

    Then you need to simply and clearly document the exact steps, based on whatever scripts you're using, for changing their passwords/updating their profile. You can send that in their welcome email, you can post it inside the site on a page that's public... you can let them know how in many different ways. Don't let this stop you. It's not your biggest problem... APATHY is a far greater enemy than user passwords, believe it.

    What's worked for you?
    RAP/RAP Press/WSO Pro Add-On

    Digital Access Pass (DAP)

    Nanacast

    Good for you, and you've obviously been smart about your research.

    Now don't let anxiety about having made the right choice get in the way.

    Here's what I can tell you having put virtually every membership solution created in the last several years to the test... ALL scripts have their own unique ways of pissing you and your customers off. Don't worry - there's something to hate about whichever one you choose.

    Good luck,

    Brian

    I see now that JVZoo has explicit fields for using it with s2member when you add a product. Looks like that takes care of my decisions!
