Wordpress membership plugin

7 replies
Hey everyone! I hope I'm not going to mislead anyone to thinking this is an attempt to sneakily market myself, I honestly want to just take a pulse in the market for a product I'm creating.

I'm developing a Wordpress Membership Plugin that allows you to setup membership levels for your wordpress blog and essentially turn your Wordpress site into a membership site. My question is, how many people are needing this sort of thing and what would be the primary features you'd look for in such a plugin?

I realize there are other similar plugins on the market, but feel I can do it better. So that's my goal. Your feedback is MOST appreciated and I would buy you a beer or coffee if you live in Chattanooga!

    From my view, membership should have at least..
    1. multi stage or level membership
    2. can add on / delete content easily
    3. can drip-feed content easily
    4. protects your content/products from unauthorized access
    5. can set up expiration dates for your content
    6. can be e-store also..
    7. can support multi products in one membership..
    8. easy to edit..

    anyway, i live outside USA, maybe u just currier my coffee..

    p/s dun forget to pm me when you release your plugin..

    Membership sites are great source of income. I ran one before but eventually sold it at Flippa for a considerable amount. I don't see any reason why someone who is interested would not use it... But the bullet points above is another advantage of a certain plugin to be more competitive...

    Hi John,

    there are tons of membership sites that run on wordpress. And if your planning to build a membership plugin , I think there maybe quite abit of competition here.

    Wishlist membership
    DAP - Digital Access Pass - Its not a wordpress plugin but runs on it.
    WarriorPress - (new one) - I'm using this

    Either ways if you do create the plugin, I'll gladly accept a review copy

    lifeempowered, Paid Memberships Pro is a plugin that I've created which is 100% open source.

    I'm trying to turn it into the community solution for membership sites on WordPress. I would love more people involved in development.

    So consider contributing to our project before starting something of your own.

    In the repo: WordPress › Paid Memberships Pro « WordPress Plugins
    On GitHub: https://github.com/strangerstudios/p...mberships-pro/

    If you are into this for the business angle. I think there are loads of opportunities to make money using PMPro as a base. What I'm hoping happens is that people develop extra functionality and tutorials, etc around a membership site niche and sell that.

    E.g., lots of personal trainers and other fitness experts are using our plugin. A package that included PMPro along with other plugins and themes that support the things they usually do with it could be sold as a bundled download or service.

    Or you could build a bundle for Warrior Forum folks that includes a lot of the things they typically need: an upsell after signing up, review copies, long form landing pages, etc.

    Cheers!

      You should check the insides of it out for an idea of somethings you could do.
