How to Redirect Customers to Wishlist Member Registration Form after WooCommerce Checkout

How to Redirect Customers to a Wishlist Registration Form after the Payment when Using Wishlist Member WooCommerce Plus

When using Wishlist Member WooCommerce Plus to integrate Wishlist Member with WooCommerce, the payment process is managed by the WooCommerce platform.

Therefore, the purchase flow via WooCommerce is just the same as the regular Woo payment flow when NOT using the integration plugin (Wishlist Member WooCommerce Plus).

This is the purchase flow when selling via WooCommerce:

  1. Adding products to cart and going to the checkout page
  2. Typing the payment form details and completing the payment
  3. Redirected to the purchase receipt

Many of our customers have been asking us how they can redirect their Woo customers to a Wishlist Member registration form to create a Wishlist account after they complete the payment process in the payment gateway so the flow would be like this:

  1. Adding products to cart and going to the checkout page
  2. Typing the payment form details and completing the payment
  3. Redirection to the Wishlist Member registration form to create a Wishlist account
  4. Redirection to the purchase receipt

The main reason is that they want to add more fields to the registration form to gather more information about their members.

The problems when redirecting to a Wishlist Member registration form:

The point of integrating Wishlist Member and WooCommerce (or with any other online store) is to allow customers to purchase multiple types of products, including membership levels and/ or pay-per-posts. Wishlist Member alone, when not integrated with WooCommerce, allows selling only one membership level at a time.

1.Customers need to fill-in a unique registration form for every membership level and pay-per-post they purchase:

When integrated with WooCommerce, if customers purchase more than one membership levels in one cart they will need to display them with 2 different registration forms in order for them to register to both levels (one for each level), and if they purchase multiple levels they will need to fill-in a unique registration form for each level… this doesn’t make any sense.

2. You break the regular flow of purchasing through an online store:

Another issue with displaying registration forms on an online store is that they break the regular purchase flow customers are used to when purchasing from a online store. The customer is regular to see an invoice or an “Order Complete” page, and redirect him to a second registration form is unnecessary, especially as he has already filled all the information at the checkout page.

So how can I add fields to collect more information about my customers?

You can do that using the official WooCommerce extension called “Checkout Fields Editor” that allows you to add and change the checkout fields.

Using this extension you can edit the billing fields, shipping fields and more and collect extra information that is important to you.

Why You Should Never Use WooThemes Wishlist Member Integration for WooCommerce?

Why You Should Never Use WooThemes Wishlist Member Integration for WooCommerce?

In the last few years, if you wanted to integrate Wishlist Member & WooCommerce, you only had one option and that was to use the extension developed by WooThemes, the developers of the WooCommerce platform.

It would only make sense to use this extensions as this was the only one available. However, about 9 months ago we have developed Wishlist Member WooCommerce Plus, which is a complete integration plugin for Wishlist Member & WooCommerce that takes the integration between these 2 great products to a whole new level.

In the meantime, WooThemes has stopped supporting their Wishlist Member WooCommerce extension and in the last few months they even stopped selling it on their website.

Infect, the only information you can ever find of its existence is the product documentation that was left online for old users.

So why you should never use WooThemes Wishlist Member extension?

Here are 4 main reasons not to use the WooThemes extension for Wishlist Member & WooCommerce:

Looking for Black Friday and Cyber Monday Discounts ? Sorry, But We’re Not Playing This Game

Looking for Black Friday and Cyber Monday Discounts ? Sorry, But We’re Not Playing This Game

We value your time, so if you think you are going to find any Black Friday or Cyber Monday discounts at the end of the post, save your time. Saying that, you will, however, find at the end of this post a way to get discounts on all product all year long.

We have thought about it a lot, whether or not to create a promotion in this time of year, after all, every one else is doing it and customers are just looking for the right deal in order to purchase the products.

Also, this time a year is a great way to promote any product, just offer a Black Friday offer and any website that has a list of offers will be happy to promote you (for an affiliate commission) and this would be appeared like a great opportunity.

But you know what? We have realized that this kind of promotion is not taking us to where we want to go, and I think that it isn’t getting us where you want us to be either.

All our products have a great value, we develop products for people who build websites. When you buy anyone of our plugins you make an investment. It’s not just the cost of the plugins, learning a new tool takes time and trusting the company who develops it requires confidence. You are engaging with us for the long term.

We are not selling Play Stations, Xbox  or flat-screen TVs, all of these are great products, but we are just not in that business.
