Buy Now Payment Button for Membership
Step 1) Generate the Advanced Variables Code
Go to the Payment Settings tab from the admin dashboard menu of the simple membership plugin.
Take note of the ID of the membership level that you are creating this payment button for. You can find the ID of a membership level (example: 4) in the “Membership Level” menu of the plugin.
Lets say you are creating a payment button for your “Gold” membership that has an ID of 4.
Enter 4 in the level ID field and then hit the “Generate Code” button:
Copy the code that the plugin generates for you. You will need to paste it in the “Advanced Variables” section of the PayPal Buy Now button.
Step 2) Create the PayPal Buy Now Button with the Code
Log into your PayPal account and go to the Merchant Services menu.
Create your PayPal Buy Now button as usual but before finishing the button, go to the Advanced variables section.
- Check the Add advanced variables checkbox.
- Copy and Paste the advanced variable code that the plugin generated for you in step 1.
- Finish creating your button and use it on the “Membership Join Us” page.
- You can edit the “Join Us” page that this plugin created for you and embed the button code on this page. Your customers will use this button to pay for the membership access.
