  • A Simple Membership Problem...


    I can't figure out how to do something that's probably very simple.

    Here's what I'm trying to do:

    1) Offer differently-priced subscription links to different, specific, non-random groups of users. (Example: Group1 is offered a Free or $0 price, Group Two is offered $17, Group Three is offered $27.)

    I imagine one way of doing this would be to put subscription links on different, hidden URLs.

    Is that the best way to offer different prices, or is there a better way? Note that I want the prices hidden-- I don't want those in Group Three to see the prices available for those in Group One.

    2) My impression is that there isn't a Bulk Membership Import feature in vBulletin. Is this true? I ask because I'm moving from a one-shot product sales model to a membership model, and I'd like to be able to import all my old customers into the new membership database at once.

    Is there a better way of doing this than asking them to subscribe to a $0 membership?

    1) You can restrict subscriptions by usergroup:

    Admin CP -> Paid Subscriptions -> Subscription Permissions

    2) ImpEx (our importer program, available in the member's area) can import users from a CSV file. If you want to integrate and not import then that requires custom code. If you have some coding ability then you can post on for help with this.
