Looking For The Most Comprehensive Membership Site Solution For A WordPress-based Website

10 replies
Hello Fellow Warriors,

I would like to hear your opinion about the most comprehensive membership solution for a WordPress-based website. Also, if you could list some of the pros and cons of any membership software/plugins/solutions you have personally used, that would be most helpful.

Thank you.

    Hi , I don't want to spol your thunder but the reply to your question depends on what you mean by "comprehensive".

    It probably best to list what your requirements are - basically what are you personally looking for in a membership software etc then people can respond to what fits that criteria?

    I could link to a blog post that reviews quite a few (membership software/plugins) but not sure if I can place links here :-) (been a while since i have posted I can't be bothered to read the rules)

    The blog posts is a bit old but it does gives idea of core things to consider which I think will be relevant.

    let me know (MODS) if I can post link (not affiliated to the blog post).

    Thanks for your replies. Here are some of the capabilities I would like to have:

    Control Content Access - This would include the ability to protect a forum created with bbPress or a comparable WordPress-based forum.

    Content Dripping Capability

    Unlimited Membership Levels - With The ability to allow for upgrades to higher membership levels.

    Integration with popular email services - Such as Aweber, Get Response, etc.

    Integration with a variety of payment gateways

    Ability to protect and sell downloadable digital products such as ebooks or videos

    Outstanding technical/customer support - This is a deal breaker. Regardless of how wonderful the product is, it is not an option for me without outstanding technical/customer support.

    Ability to offer limited-time discount coupons

    Ability to offer a limited-time trial membership

    Price - Price is not a factor for an excellent product with excellent technical/customer service.

    Thank you for your help.

    I have used Wishlist Member for years on multiple sites. I'm very happy with it.

    That said, I've been experimenting with Paid Membership Pro and have been quite impressed.

    I'm finding I don't want to switch membership tools mid stream. So try to pick carefully. 5 years down the road you aren't going to want to change, probably.

    The SageRock Institute Online Marketing Institute Learning Library is now totally free.

      I'm in agreement here in that I don't want to continually have to switch membership software. I'm interested in a long-term solution.

      Thank you for your input and thanks to everyone else who has been kind enough to respond.

    DAP (Digital Access Pass) can answer all your requirement list.
    The only thing is that while support was good at first, I am having
    a hiccup with that now and not sure if it's on their side or mine.
    I came here to research that and so far I see only praise for their
    support so hopefully they will answer my ticket soon enough.
