The Fast Member General Settings page is where you will configure most of your global site settings.
Review a history of the plugin changes up to the version you have installed.
The General Mailing settings will allow you to set the global email sender name and email address. This will be used in the Fast Member Autoresponder and Fast Member Broadcast emails, alongside any Affiliate welcome emails.
Note: Products each have their own sender email settings which you would enter on each product.
Mailing Methods – You will find a number of mailing methods to use and view a more detailed mail sending and SMTP integrations tutorial here
You can set the global Affiliate Welcome message here and again this will be used for all affiliates who join, unless a specific Affiliate Welcome email is created in the product.
Withdrawls – These are the settings for the Affiliate Withdrawls. Here you can set a threshold percentage which will be kept back until the Money Back Guarantee period is over.
You can also set the Minimum Withdrawl Amount your affiliates have to earn before they can request a withdrawl.
The built in system supports PayPal by default. If you have one of our payment addons then you may see additional options here

ClickBank Secret Code – Used for the ClickBank integration
Plugin Language – you can set one of the supported translations to use Fast Member in your own language
Currency – Set a site wide currency for accepting payments
Default Landing Page after Login – Set a global members home page. This will override the individual members home page product settings.
This setting is best used when you plan to sell more than one product or membership. By using this setting you can have a central ‘dashboard page’ for your members which links to the various membership levels and products once they have logged in.
You can view a detailed tutorial on Product Priorities here to understand the different scenarios where the members login page is used.
Non Member and Expired Member actions – these settings decide what happens to non members and those members who’s access expires (ie they miss payments).
These are global settings which will over ride the individual product settings. You can view more detailed tutorials on Non Member and Expired Member actions here
Hide Comments on Protected Pages – this will hide the posted comments on pages which have been marked for protection keeping the discussion as well as post content private only for members who have signed up and joined that particular product.
Delete Plugin Database – this will remove all entries created by FastMember from the WordPress database. If checked and you uninstall Fast Member you will lose all data associated with the plugin. This is only used when you wish to remove all traces of FastMember from an installation. In most cases leave this unchecked.
Use Beta Versions – This will allow you to install the latest development version of FastMember. Unless you want to test the very latest features and can report back any possible bugs you can leave this unchecked.
We may ask you to check this in individual support cases to push a new update to your site to fix any issues.
