    How does aMember work for a service business that wants to start a subscription membership for clients who want to remain on an "active" list?

    I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around list management. One
    of my clients wants to have a subscription service that adds and
    removes clients from a list based upon their payments. She's deeply
    intrenched in Aweber and uses it regularly, but the Aweber/Paypal
    integration does not work with the Paypal recurring subscriptions,
    only single purchases.

    In a nutshell, if a client opts to pay $30 a month they are part of
    the active list, but if they stop paying she wants their name removed
    or status set to inactive, or something similar. Clients who remain
    on the list (or as active) will recieve updated information on
    appointment availability and links to recent recordings, etc.

    My first thought was to look at membership software, like amember. I
    use amember for my E-Learning Center and it works like a charm.
    aMember keeps the user list updated based on if they continue to pay
    however I've got the recurring pay options set up. If a user does not
    renew a subscription they are removed from access to a training
    course. That works out great for me.

    But how does this functionality translate to a service as opposed to
    a product? Is something like aMember really the way to go for the
    functionality she wants? I was really hoping there was something that
    integrated into Aweber that would take care of it so she wouldn't
    have to manage her list from another source other than what she's
    currently using.

    Any ideas? Maybe I'm thinking about this all wrong.
