    I have used MemberMouse in the past. It was extremely easy to set up and there's tons of tutorial videos within the Member's Area if you get stuck. The only downside is the monthly fee instead of buying the software upfront, but other than that I like it.

      Just curious who you switched over to? Was it just the monthly fee being the downside? I guess the benefit to that is you know the software is making money so will be around longterm.

      I have tried about a dozen solutions and all have their pluses and minuses. The biggest one being that they don't easily integrate Wordpress with a forum software such as Vbulletin or Xenforo. You end up having to use BBpress forums which aren't too great.

      Dunning management and card rebills are another place where many membership software fails. You lose a ton of money on lost customers.

        Just used MemberMouse for a site outside the IM niche with a couple of partners.

        I think it's fantastic.

        For some reason, the monthly fee turns some people off - they do the math and realize that $20/month is $240 for a year and in the long run they might save a little money paying $197 upfront for another membership script.

        But there are some benefits to the recurring charge. One being that you can start for just $20...then once the site is producing income that monthly fee just comes off the top.

        If you're bootstrapping your first membership site and don't want to invest a lot upfront before ever making a dime, it's a great way to go.

        The other benefit to the recurring charge is that they don't forget about you as a customer. They actually adhere to the 80/20 rule.

        Think about it - those sites that charge upfront have to keep filling up their funnel and making sales just to keep the business going. So where do you think their focus is going to be?

        Acquiring new customers or servicing those they already have?

          I was looking into this just yesterday, because I'm debating whether to turn my IM site into a membership site. I have so much free content I could post, if I could drip feed it I might have a decent membership site.

          I read a lot of reviews on MemberMouse, it sounds really good. The problem is I'm skeptical of reviews lol I didn't find anything that suggested improvements or had anything negative and this is just me, but that is what I look for in an honest review.

          At the end of the day I decided to try a free (you only pay for support) one first. I know it might bite me in the end, but it has good reviews, and has a forum with support. It has other free add-ons that will boost functionality which in my case is what I need. Multiple level memberships with drip feed content.

          Mind you, at this point I have not installed it full yet, except in my "sandbox" testing area. I haven't been using it for a year or so or anything, so I can't really recommend it yet. It does seem promising though.

          Just for disclosure, I have no relationship at all with this product, as an affiliate or anything. Don't even have the link handy sorry. The name you can google is PaidMembership(s?) Pro.

    $20 a month is reasonable if the product works well. To custom code something would cost a fortune. If you're making money with a membership site, then I guess it pays for itself. I just was curious how people are using it and what they like best about it. There are so many membership plugins to choose from now and I think I've seen almost all of them. Don't have time to test each and every one.

    When I think back to the old days, early 2000's and Membergate was all there was, that was over $3,000 just to get started. The software works well and does everything it says it does, although it is starting to look a bit "dated". DAP, digital access pass is a bit dated looking as well, but people swear by it and run million dollar businesses on both platforms. Member Mouse is looking pretty sexy in it's videos, just need to make sure it can deliver what it promises.

    I very recently demo'ed MemberMouse and found it to be excellent and have already recommended it privately to clients where the fit was good.

    Very high quality dashboard and reporting clearly built by and for profit-driven entrepreneurs (something virtually everyone else all but ignores or does the bare-bones base minimum).

    Solid training and documentation made it easy to set up fast.

    It's not a "buy it once, use it everywhere" kind of solution or software.

    You'll likely set up one MemberMouse account for each BUSINESS you're in, rather than try and fit a bunch of divergent products under one install somewhere.

    Hope this helps some,

    Brian

    Now a month later, are you folks happy with Membermouse?
    I'm thinking about using it with Stripe.com for a new project.


    Thanks,

  • I recently ran a WF thread asking members who have run membership sites to recommend their favorite. You can visit if you like, here is the link:

      I'm using MemberMouse on an 11,000+ member site. It's excellent software.

      It allows me to offer multiple courses and classes in both drip and download-immediately formats; to set up new courses quickly; to add upgrades simply; and, to receive payment using PayPal and Stripe (there are other options if you choose them).

      It does not play particularly nicely with e-checks.

      It does not play particularly nicely with most forum software, which has been an ongoing headache since my forums have always been a mainstay of my community.

      But customer service is AWESOME. I have a big, complicated site, a lot of users, and because of the complexity of what I've put together, occasional bugs and conflicts with the site. Eric is tremendous at working through issues...and that monthly fee you pay covers the customer service you may need.

      It's worth the money, and I'm paying significantly more than $20/month.

        How are the analytics and lifetime value stats? I see that they offer these in the higher-end plans and the start ones don't have them. Are they worth the extra expense?
