How To Link and WishList Member

by steveo on January 26, 2011

Having problems?

Want to use Nanacast for Affiliate Tracking and payment handling and still deliver secured, drip-fed membership content through WordPress using Wishlist Member?

With WishListCast you can do exactly that. Here’s how…

Grab Nanacast

Grab Nanacast through (yes, that’s my link) :-)

Grab and Install WishList Member

Refer to Wishlist documentation for this

Grab and Install WishListCast plugin


Grab WishListCast plugin at
Upload through standard WordPress plugin install process

Create a Membership Level in WishList


Refer to Wishlist documentation for how to do this

Collect integration details from the Integration tab in Wishlist


You need to know the "Secret Word" and the SKU for the membership you want to link

Create a Membership in Nanacast

This is the membership we will link to your Wishlist Membership Level
(i.e. signing up to this Nanacast membership will add you to Wishlist)
Refer to Nanacast documentation for how to do this.

Add "Password" as a custom field


Click on Notifications / Custom fields in your Nanacast membership and add password from the list of pre-defined custom fields.

This is the same as if you were using MemberLock

Tick the box to "not show password field and Auto-Generate Password Instead"

Link to WishListCast from your Nanacast Membership Custom Fields/Notifications


This is where you will link Nanacast to Wishlist through the WishListCast plugin

If you have multiple membership levels you want to join you can use a "pipe" (|) to separate them, eg.

Note: Line breaks here are for readability – the command goes all in one long line.

New in v1.1.0 – Set a Default User Role
You can now set a default WordPress role for the new user by adding &role=roleName (e.g. &role=subscriber to the link command e.g.

If you do not specify a role, then the "New User Default Role" from your WordPress Dashboard Settings | General will be used.
If you want the new user to have NO WordPress role use &role=none

Test by creating a New member


Add a new member in Nanacast.

The member will appear in your Wishlist Members

Check member appears in WishList Members


At this point, integration is working.

If you Unsubscribe the member in Nanacast, they will be Cancelled in Wishlist (simulate PayPal / credit card recurring payment stopped).
If you Resubscribe the member in Nanacast, they are Re-Activated in Wishlist (simulate PayPal / credit card recurring payment resuming)

Set Thank You Email


Make sure that the email you send to new members directs them to your Wishlist membership site (default is Nanacast).
To do this, just change the Website URL.

Bulk uploading existing members from Nanacast to Wishlist


If you have existing Nanacast members, you can easily bulk upload them to your Wishlist site by going to your Nanacast membership list (click View Active)

Upgrading existing members – make Nanacast members "Pending"


Hit Check/Uncheck All and change status to "Pending" – this will send an unsubscribe message to Wishlist (as the members don’t exist in Wishlist yet, this will have no effect).

Upgrading existing members – find "Pending" members


Next we use the Advanced Search functionality to find the existing Pending members

Upgrade existing members – find "Pending" members cont’d


Search for subscriber’s with "Pending" status

Upgrade existing members – set status to Subscribed


You may optionally Resend email receipt – this will send your subscribers the "thank you" email with their Wishlist login details.
