Common Questions about the Integration:

Here are some common questions we get asked about using MemberPress WooCommerce Plus to integrate MemberPress and WooCommerce (in combination with LearnDash):

1. How the flow works when integrating these 3 platforms?

MemberPress WooCommerce Plus allows you to sell MemberPress memberships as WooCommerce products.

For the LearnDash – MemberPress integration you need this add-on:

MemberPress Integration

If this add-on enrolls / unenrolls members than it will achieve what you want, but it is not related to our plugin.

MemberPress WooCommerce Plus will assign the member to MemberPress after the payment via WooCommerce, and will allow you to grant the membership discounts per level, and once the member will be assigned to the membership, the Learndash -MemberPress add-on will take action to assign the member to the relevant LearnDash courses.

The users flow is like this:

  1. Adding the MemberPress membership product to cart > Checking Out via WooCommerce
  2. Completing the payment process and going to the Order Receipt or any other page you choose to redirect members after they purchase a membership via WooCommerce (Can be defined in the MemberPress WooCommerce Plus plugin settings)
  3. Members are automatially enrolled to the relevant course (Using the LearnDash MemberPress Add-On)
  4. Members can access the course!
  5. Email with payment receipt and membership details are sent to the customer / member

2. What happens incase a refund for the course is granted? Will the member be unenrolled from the course?

Yes! When granting a refund, the member is order status is changed to “refunded” by MemberPress, and LearnDash only allows access if a users membership status is active, so the member will no longer have access to the course.

3. What happens to the MemberPress membership if the customer cancels his subscription? 

If a member cancels his subscription the membership within MemberPress will be cancelled automatically and the member will no longer be able to access the course’s content.
