A tool to allow users to subscribe to a Plone site and pay their membership fees.

Project description


This package provides paid member subscription functionality for a Plone site, including subscription renewals, membership expiration, and CSV import/export of site members.

Member subscription payments are handled by PloneGetPaid: and member management is handled by Remember: .


  • Plone 3+ (tested with 3.2.x/3.3.x)
  • Remember (tested with 1.1b3)
  • Membrane (tested with 1.1b5)
  • PloneGetPaid (tested with 0.7.9/0.8.8). Currently only works with synchronous (onsite) payment processors, although one production install has been customised to work with PayPal.
  • archetypes.schemaextender



  • The required configuration you need in your buildout can be seen here: . Just copy this into your existing buildout (or use it as is) and run buildout.

  • Restart Zope.

  • Go to the Site Setup page in the Plone interface and click on the Add/Remove Products link. Choose collective.subscribemember (check its checkbox) and click the Install button. If collective.subscribemember is not available on the Add/Remove Products list, it usually means that the product did not load due to missing prerequisites.

  • From the main Site Setup page, click on Zope Management Interface, portal_properties, then subscribemember_properties and enter the available membership subscription options in the membertypes field. Each subscription option is on a new line and the semicolon separated text values are as follows:

    > Label for dropdown menu;Subscription amount as an integer,['List of roles paid-up member is granted'],Number of years subscribed as an integer value,Other text description for membership type (optional)
    > E.g. Physician,15,['Member'],1,STUD-2

    Following this, you can enter the member_import_directory where collective.subscribemember should look for a CSV file containing member data to import and also the reminder_email_trigger, which is the number of days prior to the subscription expiry date that a member should be sent a reminder email asking them to renew their subscription.
