How to test your member experience and Member Plans

Sign up for your Member Plan

The simplest way to test your Member Plans and overall member experience are working properly is to simply go to your website and sign up as if you were a new member.

Create a 100% off coupon

If the Member Plan you want to test is NOT free, we recommend you first create a coupon discount for yourself so you aren't charged after signing up.

  1. To do that, go to your MemberSpace account > click 'Member Plans' in the top navigation > click 'Add/View Coupons' > click 'Add Coupon' > for the dropdown 'What type of Member Plan is this coupon for' choose based on the type of Member Plan you're testing > fill in the form and make sure you set the discount to 'Percentage Discount' and enter '100' > click Create Coupon at the bottom.
  2. Open a private window in your browser > click 'File' in the top left of your screen > then select 'New Incognito Window' or 'New Private Window' depending on your browser.
  3. Then in this new window > go to your website > click on the plan sign up link you want to test.
  4. Use the 100% off coupon you just created when entering in your credit card details for the paid plan.
  5. After you're done testing, make sure you cancel yourself from the plan by going to your MemberSpace account > clicking 'Members' in your top navigation > find your test member and click 'View member details' > then click 'Cancel' next to the plan you signed up for.
  6. If you prefer to sign up and actually pay (not recommended) here is how you refund yourself afterwards (Stripe will charge you a refund fee).

Alternative - Set up a free test plan

If you prefer to create a free test plan instead, choose one of your existing Member Plans you want to mirror for the test.

  1. Go to your MemberSpace account > click 'Member Plans' in your top navigation > click 'Add Member Plan' > select 'Free (no payment)' from the dropdown.
  2. For the title of the plan just call it something simple like 'Test Plan' and make sure you set up the same Member Page access, Content Link access (if applicable) as the Member Plan you're mirroring.

    Also make sure the 'After Log In' and 'After Sign Up' is the same as the Member Plan you're mirroring.

    At the bottom make sure you toggle off 'Make Plan Public'. 
  3. Next, click the 'Sign Up Link' for the free plan you just created. Then click the 'Copy' button:
  4. Open a private window in your browser > click 'File' in the top left of your screen > then select 'New Incognito Window' or 'New Private Window' depending on your browser.
  5. Then in this new window > go to your website > paste in the sign up link you just copied and sign up as a new member.
