A wordpress site where customers can log in to their account.

A wordpress plugin to make a "customer login" section.

Ok, I know it's weird to ask this on mefi, but after failing elsewhere on the net, I thought I'd give it a try.

My wordpress site sells one and only one product, which is renewed weekly (aka a subscription).

I want the customer to fill out some data that I want, then they're taken to paypal to pay (and they have to fill out some new data [like credit card info] which I don't care about seeing, though some of it is redundant [name] so it'd be nice if that was pre-polulated in the paypal page). (By the way, this is a small operation so I can't afford to "upgrade" paypal beyond "website payments standard.")

Then later, customers can come back, log into their "my account" section, and make changes: like updates to their name or address, or canceling their subscription.

Also, I want access to all the data about all my customers.

There has to be a wordpress plugin that does something like this. I've tried a few e-commerce plugins, but they all failed in one way or another... what advice does metafilter have for me?

You can use this plugin or this plugin to do what you want. For the second, have a look at this article, which I found very useful in a "how to bend a WP membership plugin to your will" sort of way.

I use Wordpress Register Plus and it works well.

Available here.

Under wp-admin | plugins | Add New- you can search for plugins and typically install them right from the backend.
