Add new user role when existing role expires

If you are setting an expiry time on membership roles, you might want to add a new role when the membership role expires.

You can do this with the following snippet. Note that if you are assigning a new role to replace an expired role, you will need to have created that new role in WooCommerce > Settings > Members Only > Roles.

<?php
/**
* Add new user role when existing role expires
* Note that the new role will need to be created first
*/
function prefix_after_expired_user_remove_role( $user, $role ) {
// This will add the 'Expired' user role.
// Ensure that you have already created this user role in WooCommerce > Settings > Members Only > User Roles
$user->add_role( 'expired' );
}
add_action( 'wcmo_after_expired_user_remove_role', 'prefix_after_expired_user_remove_role', 10, 2 );

Here’s how to add a snippet.
