Memberships - Password Access to Protected Directories
|Top Previous Next|
Memberships provides a method to sell password-protected access to specific folders (directories).
To add a membership, you must first create a subdirectory to hold the protected content. The directory must be below your AShop installation on the server directory tree.
AShop will now protect the directory and prepare it for use as a membership product.
Note: Since AShop uses .htaccess password protection, this feature is only available on Linux/Unix servers.
Customers May Recover Forgotten Passwords
If a customer, who has purchased a subscription product, cannot remember their password, they can retrieve it. If they call sendsubscrpass.php from their browser they will be prompted for the directory that they have subscription access to and their email address. An email will be sent to your customer with their password.
Deactivating Expired Subscriptions (without Password Robot)
The subscription product will be labeled "Instant Access" in the store catalog product listing.
Links to the purchased subscription directories, user names, and passwords will be included in the e-mailed store receipts that are sent to customers.
Discount Coupon Codes may be created for subscription products.
