When desiring to approve users prior to completing a membership purchase, there are two general approaches:
- Approval at Registration – in this approach, you restrict purchase of memberships to registered users only, and user registrations must be approved.
- Approval of the Order – using this approach, the membership purchase process is generally the same as it normally would be – the user completes registration when they purchase a membership. However, the order is marked as completed manually by an admin (or shop manager) so the user does not get membership access until the order is completed.
