7 Unique Ways to Setup WordPress New User Registration

WordPress New User Registration Methods

What’s the most common way to register users on WordPress website? A user registration form, of course. And why even worry creating a user registration form when WordPress provides you a default registration system of its own? Well, the truth is, almost everyone browsing the web knows by now how the default WordPress new user registration system works and can easily evade registration when interacting with your website. If you are still sticking to the default WordPress new user registration system, it can cost you a lot of potential registration opportunities in the long run.

Today I am bringing to your attention 7 unique ways to register users on WordPress website. The key component that makes these 7 unique ways possible is the highly popular registration plugin: RegistrationMagic. Let us now look at each one of these unique ways in detail…


1. Contact Form

Contact forms are usually used to invite contact requests for various purposes. However, do you know that contact forms can also be used to register new users on WordPress website? If not, let me tell you how RegistrationMagic can help you with that.

RegistrationMagic offers a very simple and elegant way to control whether you wish to register users from your form or not. This setting can be found at two places in the RegistrationMagic Dashboard.

RegistrationMagic is compatible with all of the popular newsletter services. Whether you are using MailChimpAweber, MailPoet, or Newsletter, RegistrationMagic works magically with them all! To integrate your RegistrationMagic form with the newsletter service of your choice, just visit the Form Dashboard’s Integrate settings.

3. Product Purchase Form

If your WordPress site uses WooCommerce to sell products, then RegistrationMagic will allow you to create your very own customer registration form. This form will replace the default one that WooCommerce offers and you can edit the form in whatever way you like.

You can do this by setting the Default Registration Form in WooCommerce Integration settings (In Global Settings) to the RegistrationMagic form of your choice.

4. Exclusive Content Access

Sometimes it becomes necessary to keep certain content on your WordPress website hidden from public view. This content could be any sensitive information that should be accessed only by authorized users. Or it could be some copyright content for which people need to pay to access. Either way, you can make good use of this opportunity to register users on WordPress website.

You can create a membership plan with RegistrationMagic to register users on WordPress. And then allow only the registered users to access the restricted content.

5. External Social Profile Registration

It is not necessary that users always have to provide their details on the registration form right away. If a user already has all the required information on one of his/her social profile, then RegistrationMagic can accept that registration just as well.

RegistrationMagic allows registration compatibility with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Microsoft Live, Instagram and many more.

6. Event Booking

If you are planning an event, such as a summer camp, and accepting registrations from your website, then this can be a great opportunity to register users on WordPress site as well. To create an event registration form on your website, that also creates user accounts, all you need to do is set a registration limit on your RegistrationMagic form.

Form registration limit can be set either by date, or by number of registrations, or it can be both.

7. Site Launch

Are you aware of the fact that you can register users on WordPress website even before it goes live? Many site owners create a buzz around their website brand before the site is even launched to the public. They do this by setting up a message and a form on their site domain URL to request more information.

If you are in the process of launching a new WordPress website, you can use RegistrationMagic for this purpose by publishing your registration form on a page…
