Is there a way to set up a member's only section specific to our business? In other words, I know we can set up a member's only area, but all a person need to do to access it is register online. We are a private club so I wanted to know if there was a way to set up a member's only section for the actual members of our club?

Hello Connie,

Can you elaborate more on the following, "I know we can set up a member's only area, but all a person need to do to access it is register online."

You also commented, "We are a private club so I wanted to know if there was a way to set up a member's only section for the actual members of our club?"

So, are you trying to setup a "Members Only" page for your website that's password protected?

Hi Connie -

Thanks for writing in!

You're correct - with the Storefront Members Only section, anyone can register to become a "member".

However, if you want to limit Members Only to your club members, this might be a workaround that could work for you:

- Require a Subscription Product to become a member: This would mean that in order to become a member they would have to purchase a subscription product that you assign. However, this still leaves it open for anyone to purchase the subscription to become a member

OR you can

- Require certain products to require special authorization to purchase : This means that you can assign only certain members to purchase particular items. So, if there's a product only true club member are allowed to purchase, you can enable this and select which of your store customers are allowed to purchase.

Hope that helps!
Aubrey
