Where do I get the option to choose whether to renew a membership automatically? Secondly, how does it only apply to the initial membership?

I have

  • installed a recurring payments processor (agileware eway)
  • in the membership type configurations page I've made auto-renew optional
  • I've tried the page, both logged in and not logged in.

Where should I see this choice?

After you've made the membership type as optional, you should set an additional setting on the contribution page, i.e,

  • visit Contributions -> Manage Contribution Pages
  • Go to the Membership tab of the required contribution page.
  • You will see an additional column of Auto-Renew on the Membership type field.

  • Select Give Option on the membership type that you want to enable this option for.

  • Save and Navigate to the live contribution link civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=<page_id>. This should display an option to renew the membership.
