There is an option to automatically add users to a membership level when they join a site through a non-WishList Member method. This could include any method that creates a WordPress user on the site.
Members typically register through a WishList Member registration option to gain access to membership levels. But, you may want to allow any users added to the WordPress site to automatically be added to specific membership levels.
This is possible and the option is named “Automatically Add non-WishList Member User Registrations to this Level” and it can be found in the Setup > Levels > *Click to edit Level* > Registrations section of WishList Member.
In most cases, users will gain access to membership levels by registering using a WishList Member method. But, there are some cases where you may want to add users to a membership level if they join using the WordPress registration option or a 3rd party plugin installed on the site.
Enabling “Automatically Add non-WishList Member User Registrations to this Level” will automatically add the user to the membership level if they join through a non-WishList Member registration option on the site.
Please note, registration does need to happen on the WordPress site for this setting to work as intended.
