Question about subscriptions

Hi there,
I just have a quick question about the subscription service offered.
When you have paid for the subscription, do users automatically gain access to restricted areas, or does it take a couple of days/hours to process?

Thanks in advance,


Dear chickendippers:

Theoretically, the PayPal system returns a successful transaction notice to the Digital WPA site and as soon as the CRON runs (an automatic check-up) every hour, your membership status would change from "authenticated user" to "member." At that point you'd have full access to all aspects of the site.

This may not always work as planned, however, so if you notice any problem, just send an email to us ( and we'll make sure the system knows your membership status.

Many thanks for the reply :)
