    I want customers to be able to pay first and then let them create their amember account. Is there any type of plugin for this?

    Thanks

    Not that I know of- what you can do is place the payment system ahead of the amember signup, then when payment is completed send them to the amember signup page to order a "free" lifetime product.

    I appreciate the advice but my membership site would get raped if I did it that way :)

    Do you think it's possible to have someone code this in or is it impossible?

    This is possible as customization but depends on payment system that you will use.

    Alex, a lot of people ask about this- which payment systems can it be done for?

    David,
    This is possible for payment systems that send IPN notifications to aMember and include info about user and payment details in notifications (for example paypal, clickbank etc..)
    However there will be some limitations. User will not create account after payment himself, it will be created automatically from IPN script, and user will receive login/password by mail.
    Anyway, this can't be done globaly for all payment systems and depends on exact setup.

    Yes this is possible to implement for 2CO.

    No there is no explanation, and solution is custom in each case. Customization of /amember/plugins/payment/twocheckout_r/twocheck_r.inc.php will be required.
