    This is such a great program I would like to use it to manage not just the free subscribers but also paying supporters, contributing members, authors and everyone else who supports this educational website.

    In my case everyone gets a free subsciption, but I need to sort the subscribers in different ways that is transparent to the subscriber. How can I seperate subscribers into special groups and not have those groups display in the membership infomation area and still be able to manage and search those groups?

    Also:
    Does aMember integrate with any shopping carts?

    You can create several free "products" - subscription types. Then it will be easier to manage.
    Or you can add a custom field named "Subscriber Type".

    aMember has integration module for X-Cart.

    What does x-cart integration mean? Does this infer that with x-cart you can sell physical items and memberships via the same cart? Plkease tell me more.

    Alex, I did add a special field to sort by but I see that I can not use this to email to the group. Creating a "free" product would work if it did not display in the member information area but was hidden from the member somehow.
    Can that be done?

    No, it only allows to share members database between amember and x-cart. it is not full integration!

    You can easily hide it from member. Just remove these items from amember/member.html
