    Hey David,

    How difficult was it moving from a subdomain using Thrivecart to hosting your courses on your main domain using WooCommerce?

    I’m thinking about doing the same thing because I have a couple of courses and other football coaches who want to use my platform and my site is slowly during into a e-com like store but with membership.

    My courses were always hosted on my own domain. Thrivecart was only used to sell stuff. So not exactly sure what you’re asking.

    In terms of switching from Thrivecart to WooCommerce as the shopping cart, it wasn’t particularly difficult. Realize that I kept Thrivecart there for any existing subscriptions. And I just set it so that all NEW ones go into WooCommerce. And they both assign the same tags in the CRM (using WP Fusion), so from a course permissions standpoint, it doesn’t really matter.

      I thought you used to have the Lab on an app.blogmarketacademy.com

      The reason I ask is because I have my membership on a subdomain and want everyone on one domain.

      Didn’t know how difficult that would be to move everything to the main site.

      Ah, gotcha. I misunderstood. Yeah, so when I put it all back together again, what I did was left all the LAB material right where it was. I imported the blog posts into it. Then, changed the domain.

      Moving the blog posts is a lot easier than moving all of the other membership plumbing and courses.

      That’s awesome and what I want to do.

      Was it difficult to point the domain? Can you point me in the right direction or would it be better to get some help from you?

      It isn’t too difficult, but I could help you do it.

      – Change the domain in WordPress settings.

      – Change the domain in your hosting settings

      – Change the DNS as needed.

      In some cases, there’s a little bit of search/replace needed to fix URL links. Just depends on if yuo have any hard-coded URLs in your content or theme.

      I would love your help with that. Because I want to do the same thing. It’s easier to move the pages and blog posts than it is to move all the courses.

      What’s the best way for me to get your help?

      Just pick up a service credit on your account and then submit a request and we’ll get it done. If all you need done by me is the actual domain switch, 1 credit should be fine. If you want me to move your content, too, then it MIGHT be super fast… but you never know until you do it. Sometimes there’s a little bit of fixup needed after an import.

      BTW, your email address is in my system as bounced. I assume you haven’t been getting any email from me. 🙂

      Going to get the credits now. I think I can move all the pages and everything.

      I don’t use that email anymore. (I forgot to change it too in my settings.)

      Is there anyway you can change it on your end? Because I freaking missed all your emails.

      My new email, that I use all the time, is —EDITED OUT —

      Also, are you using WooCommerce Membership AND Subscription plug ins? Or only one of them?

      Because I’m looking at them and you would need to buy both and that’s 400 a year.

      I use the Subscription add-on for billing, but WPFusion handles all the membership access stuff.

      BTW, I edited your prior post to edit out your email address so you don’t get spidered by spammer bots. 🙂
