Member Benefits / Membership Levels

Once you have created your membership levels, they can be displayed on your site in the form of – member benefits page as well as on your new member form and renewals form.

Membership levels are also used by the Recurring Payments plugin to create and send renewal reminders.

Update Membership Levels

Change cost of membership

Because membership levels are used throughout the Chamber Dashboard system, when the time comes to update or change your membership levels, there are a few steps to the process.

To make changes to membership levels, from your WordPress dashboard: go to Businesses >> Membership Levels.

Before you start, which type of update will you use?

Change level name

If you change the name of a membership level, the change will automatically show up for all Businesses currently assigned to that level. For example, if you change the name of a level from ‘Small Business‘ to ‘Businesses & Non-profits’, all Businesses assigned to the ‘Small Business’ level, will now be in the ‘Businesses & Non-profits‘ level.

To see a list of Businesses currently assigned to a membership level, click on the number in the ‘Count’ column.

Note: Any open or pending invoices that existed before you made the change will need to be manually updated to the new level. Go to Invoices >> All Invoices and sort by amount to get started.


Add a new level

If you add a brand new membership level, new members will be able to choose this level when they join. However, you will need to manually assign existing members to include at this level. You can use the WordPress bulk edit feature to make this change to more than one Business at once.

Note: Any open or pending invoices that existed before you made the change will need to be manually updated to the new level. Go to Invoices >> All Invoices and sort by amount to get started.


Delete a level

When you delete a membership level, any businesses that were assigned to that level will need to be
re-assigned to a different level.

if you are planning to delete a membership level that is NOT assigned to any Businesses, you can simply delete the level. (There is no way to create a draft membership level, so be sure to save any information that you might want to refer back to later.)

If there ARE Businesses assigned to the membership level, we recommend creating your new level first, then re-assigning your Businesses using the WordPress bulk edit feature, before deleting the old level.


Change level perks only

If the only changes you are making to the membership level are within the ‘Perks’ area, all you need to do is make your changes and be sure to click the ‘Update’ button when you are finished. These changes will automatically be updated on your membership benefits page.


Change pricing only

To change the cost of a membership level, first make the change on the ‘Edit Membership Level’ screen, shown above.

You will then need to manually update any open or pending invoices that existed before you made the change. Go to Invoices >> All Invoices and sort by amount to get started.

Update invoice:

  • Edit invoice.
  • Select new membership level.
  • Click ‘Calculate Total’.
  • Then ‘Update’ the invoice to save your changes.
  • Use the ‘Email Invoice’ option within the individual invoice to resend to your member with a custom message.
