Step 4.  Enter your product (membership) name.

Step 5.  Enter your unique product ID from MemberSonic for your membership level (it will look something like this:  wso_51797afc9239e).

Step 6:  Check “Take customers to this URL when they cancel their checkout” and enter your page to redirect them to if the payment fails.

Step 7:  Check “Take customers to this URL when they finish checkout” and enter the thank you page on your membership site.

Step 8.  Click on Advanced Variables and enter:


(replace ‘yourdomainname’ with your actual domain name).
