How to renew a membership

Although the process of renewing a membership is fairly simple (all you need to do is log in on the website, access the Show Subscriber's Memberships menu item, click on the Renew button associated with the membership and fill in your payment details), there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration:

The Disable Account When Membership Expires ? option

This option is found in Components >> RSMembership! >> Memberships >> edit your membership >> Stock & Activation. Enabling it will render RSMembership!, upon expiration, to automatically disable the accounts the membership is associated with. Since the account will be disabled, the subscriber will no longer be able to log in with it and renew his membership. In order to allow the user to renew his membership, his account will need to be re-enabled by a website administrator.

Recurring payments

You can set up recurring payments in Components >> RSMembership! >> Memberships >> edit your membership >> Membership Information by setting Recurring Payment to Yes. Enabling this option will result in the membership being automatically renewed, without the need for the subscriber to follow the steps described above.

Even though recurring payments are enabled, the user will still be able to manually renew his membership through the Show Subscriber's Memberships menu item.
