    Enable the Customer Center

     

    About the Customer Center

    The Customer Center is where your contacts can log in and view invoices, review their purchase history, update their credit card details and change their login information.

    Prerequisites
    How to Enable the Customer Center
    1. Log into your integrated WordPress site
    2. Mouse over the Settings menu in the dashboard
    3. Click on PilotPress
    4. Find ONTRAPORT Integration Settings and check the box next to Enable Customer Center

    5. Save
    6. Select the Post-Login Redirect page you’d like your customers to see after they login
    7. We recommend setting this to Redirect Customers to the Customer Center (but you can choose any other page or WordPress hosted ONTRApage shown in the drop down if you aren't using the Customer Center)

    8. Save Changes
    What Customers See in the Customer Center
    • Unpaid Invoices
    • Payment history - every payment a customer has made
    • Subscriptions and payment plans - current subscriptions and payment plans
    • My Account - update their credit card information and their login username and password

    Troubleshooting Customer Center Access

    Problem: Customers receive welcome email with blank email address and blank password

    Solution: In the welcome Step Sequence make sure you use a Rule Step to grant the membership in the site before the email with the merge fields.

    Problem: Customers are no longer able to login

    Solution 1: Disable API caching by going logging into your WordPress site > Settings > PilotPress > Advanced Settings > Disable API caching

    Solution 2: If you’ve unhosted and rehosted your WordPress site while you’ve had customers with logins, be sure to send your customers an email with the merge fields for their new login credentials once you’ve rehosted your WordPress site.

    Solution 3: Check the access levels of your WordPress pages. If contacts don’t have the proper access level, they won’t be able to log in.

    Solution 4: Update PilotPress. Grabbing the latest version of the plugin may fix the issue.

    Solution 5: If you are using a redirect plugin with the PilotPress plugin simultaneously, disable the redirect plugin.

    Solution 6: The post login redirect page that you have set up may have the wrong access levels set. Verify and update the access levels if necessary.

      It would be great to be able to load the CC from a shortcode inside a theme page. If you are using a theme, the CC takes you outside the theme

      Yes Please make this a priority as I use optimize press and would like to place the CC into a OptimizePress (OP) template page. currently is creates a page that I can't convert to OP.

      I agree that it would be great to load the Customer Center and the Partner Center from short codes.

      I'm having a lot of trouble integrating the centers with my site in OptimizePress. The auto generated

      pages don't use my custom design.

      I would like to know whether I can have more than one type of membership program on the one website and URL using pilotpress.

       

      If so... under settings where it says... "

      |

      Add newly registered WordPress users to your ONTRAPORT contacts"

      and What tags should they have?  

      and What sequences should they be on?

      |

      .... How would I distinguish which membership program ?

       

      In fact how would I distinguish between membership levels?

      Ideally, I'd love for my members to see that there are more programs and service offerings available, that they may not have yet purchased.

      Hi Nomiki - You would set up your various membership levels in ONTRAPORT and then add the membership levels to Contacts using Rules or Sequences. Our Knowledge Base article on that process is here: Creating Membership Levels and then here for adding members to those levels: Add Members and Release Content.  

      The setting in WordPress Admin > Settings > PilotPress was recently added as some clients wanted the ability for people to sign up at their WordPress site. They then use a Sequence or Tag to act on them in ONTRAPORT. What I've seen most often is a "Basic" or "Free" access level being given to these Contacts, then a drip mail campaign to encourage them to upgrade.

      Is there a way to add a Cancellation Button on the Customer Center that updates a custom field so we don't have to lead with customer cancellations in a manual way???

      Thanks
