Can I enroll members into a paid plan?
While you can create a 100% off coupon and email it to them, you can't manually enroll someone into a paid plan.
The reason for this is that paid plans create a subscription in your payment processor, and there's currently no way to manually enroll the member into a paid plan without doing so.
It's possible that in the future you'll be able to, if payment processors allow us to create paid plans without automatically generating a subscription.
