PDF Certificate for aMember

The current version of this plugin is: v4.7

The PDF Certificate plugin for aMember lets your members download a PDF Certificate personalised with their name, an expiry date, product name and custom fields.

This plugin is perfect for membership sites wishing to offer a certificate of membership, a course completion certificate or even event tickets.

You simply upload your blank certificate template in PDF format, position and size the member name, expiry and (optional) custom fields on the certificate via the plugin settings, and then specify the product(s) which should allow access to the certificate.

And because members can download and print their certificate themselves, you save yourself the headache (and cost) of printing and posting certificates yourself.


  • aMember v6
  • A ‘blank’ PDF certificate template (PDF v1.4 / Acrobat v5 or lower)
  • PHP 7.2 or higher (plugin v3.3+ needed for PHP8 compatibility)

Features of the plugin include:

  • Supports both US and European paper format:
    Your certificate can be US Letter or European A4 and Portrait or Landscape.
  • Automatic Certificate Creation:
    The plugin automatically creates the certificate complete with member name, expiry date of the certificate and (optional) custom field of your choice. Takes away the hassle of creating certificates manually – no more messing about with mail merge!
  • Custom Certificate Template:
    Simply upload a pdf ‘blank’ of your certificate template and tell the plugin where and what size to insert the member name, expiry date and (optional) custom fields. You can also set the alignment of the field (left/centre/right).
  • Customisable Download Link:
    You can set the text of the download link offered to eligible members.
  • Customisable Certificate Expiry Date:
    You pick the product(s) which qualify the member to have the certificate and the plugin will pick the MAX expiry date from the member’s active eligible subscriptions. Or, you can specify your own fixed or relative date (e.g. ‘last day of next month’). Plus you can choose any date format to show on the certificate.
  • Custom Fields Add Flexibility:
    You can add up to 3 custom fields to further increase the flexibility of your certificate. For example, you might use a custom field to specify a member’s qualification, grade, or job title and include this on your certificate.
  • Advanced Hooks/Filters:
    Developers will love this plugin because its hooks/filters make it easy to add advanced customisations and business logic for specialist use cases. And because your custom code is hooked in, you won’t have to re-add it every time the core plugin is updated.
  • Required Products:
    You can also specify product(s) which MUST be active for a certificate to be granted. For example, if you want to only grant a certificate on completion of a course, you can create a hidden ‘doorway’ product (e.g. ‘Certificate Approved’) and make it required. Then, once the member completes the course to your satisfaction, you can simply grant them manual access to the ‘Certificate Approved’ product!
  • Simple to Install
  • No programming knowledge required. Simply drop the plugin file into your aMember misc plugins folder, configure the options you want and away you go!
  • Unencrypted Code, Unlimited Personal Licence
    The full source code is visible, so you can customise to your needs. Your purchase allows you a lifetime licence to use this plugin on all aMember sites you personally own.
  • Comes With 6 Months Support / Updates
