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.
