Best membership plugin for wordpress

39 replies
Hey what's up all.
I'm adding a membership option for my readers to my site now. I'm trying to find the best one for wordpress. Any suggestions?

My goal is to have protected video content that only members can access on my site. I also would love for it to integrate w/ Paypal pro.

I tried getpremise and it seems to create more questions than it answers. Not enough tech support. Fail....

    Wishlist or amember are my preferred methods.

      The Google First Click free feature of Memberwing has been broken for over a year now and doesn't work. Yet, it's a big selling point on the website?! The developer still hasn't gotten around to fixing it yet (after a year).

    I've used wishlist memeber for all of my clickbank products.

    It takes some time to setup, and if you have like 100 pdfs you're sharing can be a real pain.

    BUT, it's powerful as heck and will protect your stuff down to individual files...

    Could be worth it depending upon how robust you want your protection schemes to be.

    I use Wishlist and now it's all I use.

    There is a learning curve, and it can be a hassle to setup for just a .pdf download, but once you get the hang of it you can crank out securing your membership sites in a few minutes

    I think you will be very happy with your decision. Ive been tremendously happy with the amember features. However, Ive never used the amember for a wordpress site, but I know they have a wordpress plugin.

    I've had good luck with s2member, along with a good customizable theme. The theme needs to be able to show/hide individual elements on a page by page basis, the more customizable the better.

    DAP Digital Access Pass. From warriors recommendations and great customer support. It's not expensive and there are others that may be less expensive but will do all you want. I have it on two sites. Still to flesh them out but had questions for Rav and his team and always got the support I needed.

    I would recommend Wishlist plugin or you can try Kajabi service.

    Seems like Wishlist Member has gone all quiet and they don't update the plugin much anymore. There haven't been any new features in ages.

    They just past the 4-year mark and when they started there were no membership options for Wordpress, now there are dozens!

    Seems like they got really popular, became number 1, made lots of money and now got lazy. But they pitch their own membership site quite a bit. Maybe that's where the money is now?

    Anyone know what's going on over there? Is Wishlist Member still king?

      A member is REALLY really good. Wishlist has gotten really lazy as for updates and what not. But wishlist is really good for beginners and it does work well for people who want to start membership sites.

        I've recently installed the Wishlist Member plugin. For my current basic membership site needs it seems to work just fine.

        One important thing to note is that when I did contact Wishlist Member Customer Support they were extremely responsive. In addition, the answers to my support questions were accurate and very helpful.

        All The Very Best,

        Tony

    Not sure if its the best, but it works real nice, and its free, S2Member, and if you combine it with another plugin that a warrior on here sells, which was designed specially for drip feeding content, its a nice combo package with no monthly fees, and its very affordable.

    I am also looking for a membership plugin and have found the following information in a broadcast from Affiliate Blog Online:

    When we were looking at creating a membership site, we did quite a bit of research on which was the best software to use. There are quite a few and some are very good quality. We wanted one that integrated with Wordpress so essentially a plugin. We eventually decided to go with one of the following:

    1. Wishlist
    2. S2Member
    3. Digital Access Pass (DAP)

    They all received excellent reviews on the net and were quite advanced in what they could do but what decided it for us was the fact that DAP had a very sophisticated dripping system.

    Basically, for those that don't know, a drip-fed system allows for content to be released over time. So if a member joins today, they might get Lesson 1 straight away and next week they might get Lesson 2 and so on. The other software did allow for this but it was a bit messy to set up whereas with DAP it was easy to just select a post to have it drip feed.

    After using DAP for a couple of months now, we are extremely glad we chose it. It is so simple to use and the support and documentation has been amazing. We have asked a lot of questions in the process and they have even logged in to our account on a couple of occasions to sort things out for us.

    Hope I could help.
