PaidMembershipsPro Integration with AtomChat

Installing AtomChat on WordPress with PaidMembershipsPro Plugin

AtomChat plugin is by default configured to fetch user memberships created by your PaidMembershipPro plugin. Membership levels assigned to your users with PMPro are added as Roles in AtomChat.

What can you do with these Roles?

Our Role Based Access feature allows you to control which user role gets access and privilege to which features.

You can also set chat permissions between users of different membership levels/roles with our Advanced Contact Configuration setting from your AtomChat Admin Panel. For example,

Before you begin

1. Signup for a free trial (if you haven't already)

First select a plan from the AtomChat Free Trial page, enter your email address and start your free trial.

2. Note your API keys

Sign in to your AtomChat Client Area and click on the Manage button and then note down the keys present in API Keys (top right button) section - API Key, Auth Key, License Key and App ID. You may need these during installation.

Choose a layout

AtomChat offers 2 layouts

AtomChat layouts are not designed to be used together on the same page. If you add both layouts on the same page, please expect erratic behaviour from the software.
