Just to follow up on this question after reading the blog posts on the user registration / paypal add ons:
It does look like I can set up a subscription based membership site using Gravity Forms + Paypal Add on + perhaps Justin's free membership plugin but here's my remaining question:
Can we import existing members into this scenario? I have a CSV file of existing members and would need to be able to import. That may be a question for the membership plugin. Or perhaps I could just use the User Registration add on as we only have small amount of content that would be restricted to members only.
Essentially, here's what we need to do.
1 -- Recreate the membership sign up forms using Gravity Forms. Old form is here:
2 -- Require payment after form is submitted via Paypal using an annual subscription based payment. Meaning that the membership payments would now be automated.
3 -- After form and payment are submitted, user receives automated email and is added to our membership list where we can a) send emails to all members and b ) restrict some site content to those members. Things like RSVP forms for events and perhaps news and updates for members only.
4 -- And, finally, be able to import our existing members into this new system using Gravity Forms + Addons + Perhaps Justin's membership plugin.
So can I really do all this with Gravity Forms?
Again, we were looking at a paid membership plugin but after seeing the Gravity forms Add ons, it does seems we can do all this with the developer Gravity Forms license.
Just would like confirmation before purchasing. Need to make a decision in the next few days but sure hoping I'm right about this scenario.
Thanks so much. Yael
