Access Plans Instead of Related Products
- Instead of relating courses & membership to products you can now relate Access Plans to Products (and product variations!)
- Course & Membership pricing tables will now look like native LifterLMS pricing tables except information will be pulled from the product
- It is now possible to create one-time payment products which EXPIRE by utilizing access plan expiration functionality!
- You can use FREE access plans which will move students through the native “Free Enrollment” checkout process provided by the LifterLMS Core instead of having to create a $0.00 product. It is additionally possible to link an access plan to a $0.00 product if you prefer that user experience.
- All the above is additionally possible with subscription products (and subscription variations) when using WooCommerce Subscriptions
Members Only Product Restrictions
- Members Only product functionality has been reworked and extended to product variations
- Each product (subscription) variation can have it’s own membership restriction. Simple products retain preexisting functionality.
- Added the ability to customize the language for the “Members Only” button displayed when the visitor/user doesn’t meet the product restriction requirements. Each product/variation can be customized to be unique or use the sitewide default “Members Only”
