XF 1.5 User Upgrades "Can be Purchased" checkbox


Active member
Just need some clarification on this option.

If I uncheck the "Can be Purchased" checkbox on a subscription membership. What happens to renewals? Are they still allowed or are they rejected?

I'd like to grandfather our our old memberships, and I'd rather not lose those renewals.

The auto renewal is handled by PayPal so the payments will still be taken and the members will remain upgraded.

...and XenForo will accept those renewals which Paypal sends.


It only checks "can_purchase" when applying a new upgrade. If the upgrade is already active for the user then it doesn't check that. So renewals will still go through for users who already purchased the upgrade.
