Free Member Verification

When creating a Free Product you have the option to ask your members to verify their email address before an account is created.

This will help you cut down on spam accounts and bot registrations as members are only added to WordPress after they have confirmed. Until then they are held in a temporary table in the database where they remain until confirmation.

After clicking the confirmation email their account will be created as normal within WordPress and they will be added to the Free Product. They will also be logged straight in to save them having to revisit their inbox for the next email with the password to access.

Here is how to setup the Free Member verification process

Confirmation Email Settings

Within the Free Product settings check the box for ‘Send Email to Verify’

Send Email to Verify

Navigate to the Email Notifications Tab

Enter the details for the confirmation message. You can use the customisation tags to create a confirmation URL which your site members will click.

After your member first registers they will be directed to the Free Product thank you page. 

On this page you may wish to display a confirmation message.

This can be added with the ‘Confirmation’ shortcode which is accessed from the orange Fast Member icon.
