LifterLMS Integration

This video is taken directly from our integration page within the platform. Some of the steps mentioned will be specific to where this video originally shows within your dashboard.

To connect a membership platform to your account, you need to go to your Settings > Integrations area within your dashboard.

In the video above, we look at how you can connect your LifterLMS site to ThriveCart so that you can automatically add customers to membership levels when their orders complete.

The LifterLMS integration requires you to be running LifterLMS 3.39.0 or higher on your site.

What does this integration support?

When using ThriveCart to power your sales and sending customer information to LifterLMS, you will be able to

  • Add customers to individual courses automatically when orders complete.
  • Add customers to Memberships (multiple courses) automatically when orders complete.
  • Revoke access automatically for single payment products when refunded.
  • Revoke access automatically for subscriptions when cancelled.

How to add customers to LifterLMS automatically

To automatically add customers to LifterLMS when they buy your product, you will set this up under your products Fulfillment tab.

You will want to select the option to ‘Add them to my membership site’, followed by selecting what membership fulfilment you’re looking to use followed by what specific website for that platform.

Remember, ThriveCart allows you to connect multiple membership platforms to your account and also multiple sites for each platform.

This allows you to have different products in your account that add customers to different membership sites and services you may use.

If you have multiple pricing/product options set up, then you can also choose to apply the customer to the same level for all pricing options, or set different levels for different options.

If you have a bump product enabled on your checkout, then you will also have the option to set what level you wish to apply to the customer should they purchase the bump offer.

For your upsells, you will set the fulfilment under your funnel settings for the product.

How do customers get their login details?

After your customer’s order completes, ThriveCart will send your customer information to LifterLMS which will automatically have their account created if they don’t already have one associated with the email address entered at checkout.

If the customer already has an account on your site under that email address, their new membership levels will simply be added to their existing account.

New users are then sent an email with access information (which can typically be modified within your membership platform settings in their system).

WordPress looks to typically send welcome emails with login information only for new users. It’s worth noting that ThriveCart does not send the login details via email – this is sent directly from your website.

When new customers are added to your WordPress/LifterLMS site, they’ll automatically send the ‘welcome email’ to your customer. This email includes their login username, a link to the dashboard, and a link to set their password. We recommend tweaking the default email so that it’s clearer for your customers.

You can find this under your LifterLMS > Settings > Notifications > Student Welcome area in your WordPress site.

The default email:

We’d recommend maybe having something like this:
