Update user role when payment is fulfilled

  1. In the current PayPal Add-On in combination with the User Registration Add-On we have the option: "Update user when subscription is cancelled.". I think it would be very powerfull to add an option: "Update user when payment is fulfilled to [field select]".

    The [field select] should not contain al the WordPress user roles, but the fields within in the Gravity Forms. That way we can link products / subscriptions directly to user roles. New users could be created with the default role "subscriber" and upgraded automatically to the selected product / subscription role (for exampled: "paid_subscriber") if the payment is fulfileld.

    We have developed something similar in the iDEAL Add-On (Dutch payment method):

    Is this a feature that can be added? If so, how long will it take to add this? We could also develope this function with some custom code in combination with the "gform_paypal_fulfillment" filter.

  2. This is something we can look at adding. It would be a good feature for the User Registration Add-On or the PayPal Add-On. There are a couple different ways it could be implemented.

    I can't provide you with an ETA as we aren't currently working on updates to these Add-Ons. It would be possible to do so now using the available hooks. You can add additional options to the PayPal Feed settings screen using hooks. The User Registration Add-On adds options to the PayPal Add-On to handle what happens to the user when a subscription is canceled, etc.

    Thanks Pronamic for the code! It was really exactly what I was looking for too. I uploaded your code to the plugins folder and activated. I see the Update User role on the paypal option in the forms section, it just didn't populate with any roles.

    I tried deactivating and activating the members plugin I am also using but it didn't help. I check

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
