Create a member home page with Memberships blocks

Here’s an Ask SkyVerge question we’ve heard from lots of Memberships users: When a member logs in, how can I redirect them to a custom member home page instead of the WooCommerce account page? This has been a popular request for some time, but wasn’t feasible for us to address since members can belong to multiple plans. How would Memberships know which page to send a user to when they belonged to multiple plans? It’d…

SkyVerge named to the 2019 Inc 5000 list

We joined the Inc 5000 list last year as one of the fastest-growing, privately-held companies in America, and we’re thrilled to be back on the list this year.

This is desirable for merchants who want a great deal of control over who gets access to membership perks on their site. If you’re interested in setting up Memberships to require application and approval, please let us know! In the meantime, here are a…

SkyTrip 2019 Recap

Topping last year’s team retreat was going to be hard. This is the story of how we rented a castle and pretended to be in Downton Abbey for a week.

For a newcomer to WooCommerce, this is often jarring: how can I adjust my WooCommerce receipt email to add new information or a thank…

The Authorize.Net integrations for WooCommerce were among some of the earliest plugins we built at SkyVerge. At that time, Authorize.Net had several different APIs that allowed you to do different things: the AIM API handled directly processing payments, the CIM API handled securely tokenizing saved methods, the DPM API handled embedded payment forms, and the SIM API handled off-site transactions. As a result of all of this separation, there were 4 different extensions to do…
