username field, please advise settings

  1. Hi, I'm using the user registration add-on with the paypal add-on to charge users for a membership subscription.

    What is the best way of setting up the username field validation as regards the user having to have a unique username and email. I need it to only insert this information AFTER the user has paid for registration, not before. If i set this as no duplicates it validates and stores the form entry then goes off to paypal. Basically, if that user deiced to cancel and then fill in the form again, their username and email is registered on the system and can't be used again, even though the user never made it to the end of the process

    please could you advise?

    thanks!!

  2. Hi Tom Tong,

    The User Registration Add-on already does a good bit of validation on the user name for you, including making sure a username does not already exist. In addition, the UR Add-on integrates with the PayPal add-on to provide the option to only register a user when the payment is received: http://grab.by/9QUF (these options can be configured from the form's PayPal feed after a User Registration feed has been created for that form).

    If your product is subscription based, it will not delete the user, but it does provide the option to downgrade their role on the site.

  4. Correct, the User Registration checks for duplicate usernames by default.
