Introduction – The Problem with new MemberPress accounts
If you use a third-party shopping cart like ThriveCart together with MemberPress, you’ve probably noticed how clunky the user registration process is for your customers.
This creates unnecessary friction for your customers, and support headaches for you.
We even appealed to the wonderful Membership Academy community to see if anybody had solved this riddle:
No such luck…
So we had to come up with our own solution! 🙂
In an ideal world, MemberPress would automatically create and immediately auto login buyers after a purchase from your shopping cart app.
Well, we’re working on that part. 🙂
But in the meantime, we’ve been able to make the process just a little bit smoother for your buyers by removing the first password reset step entirely.
We do this by sending a so called “Magic Login Link”.
When your member opens his email and clicks this link, it will automatically log them into MemberPress without requiring any password reset.
Your members can save this email message and click on the Magic Login Link to login in the future as well.
So in effect, your members don’t even need to set a password (although they can do that if they wish).
How do I use the Registration Password Bypass plugin?
Why did we develop the Registration Password Bypass plugin?
One of our customers uses ThriveCart to sell access to his membership (by the way, we use it as well!)
His membership site is based on MemberPress.
And as most of us know, MemberPress has some restrictions when it comes to user registration.
Namely, the requirement to set your own password before you can even login.
So we needed a solution to bypass the password requirements for all new users.
After hours of research, I found out that there are no existing solutions for this problem.
So I decided to be creative and to develop my own solution! 😀
Luckily, the “base” plugin WP Magic Login Link—which is developed by a developer we found on Code Canyon—has almost everything we need for our add-on to work.
I used that as the base plugin, and added our plugin as an add-on that works on top of the existing functionality of WP Magic Login Link.
So just to make it crystal clear…
You’ll need two plugins for this to work, the basic plugin (WP Magic Login Link) and our add-on (Registration Password Bypass).
Use Case #1 – Third-Party Integration with ThriveCart
You can have a ThriveCart product which needs to add users to your membership site and you don’t want them to have to create new passwords since that would be an extra step.
Technically, it would be two extra steps since they have to manually login afterwards…
Use Case #2 – WooCommerce customers
The add-on works with WooCommerce too!
So if you plan to make your customer’s life easier when they buy your products you can create accounts automatically for them when they buy your products.
WordPress will then send over a “magic” login link so your members can directly access their WooCommerce dashboard.
Use Case #3 – Manually create private accounts
Some situations demand to manually create an account for some of your users.
Of course, you want those accounts to be private.
With our solution, you just have to add the account data without the password and they will receive an email with a “magic” login link.
