I’ve been working on a project that keeps sending me back to square one. I’ve tried Excel, Access, several other databases, WordPress plugins, etc.

The situation is a simple matter of:

Admin enters all customer data up front (or via CSV)
  (member #, name, address, date-of-birth, etc.)
Customer arrives with a membership card
  w/ UPC label (member #)
Card is scanned
Customer data member #/date-field
  is updated with the current date or a new instance of 'checking in'

It’s not even a big database – maybe 500-1000 members.

That’s pretty much it. Every time I get close to a solution in the database world, I stop and try to find a WordPress plugin to maintain the data. I’ve been going back and forth for over a month now. I would prefer the data be stored either on Dropbox, Google Drive, or inside a WordPress database.

Why not use the S2 Member plugin?

Thanks for your reply, pixelgrade. I tried S2Member. I could kick myself for not keeping notes on installation of each thing I tried. I’m re-installing now to see why It wouldn’t work for me. Just don’t recall what the issue was. Thanks again!
