6 + years user on multiple websites

Since I transitioned to Memberpress I have had 0 issues with membership management! I will be a loyal customer.

Pros

Over the 6 years that I have been using Memberpress I have had no issues at all with the membership management. I like the ease of use. The not complicated setup and the fact that it is dependable. It keeps up with the changing internet!

Cons

I am very comfortable with this software. I would suggest to include more metrics on the reports such as Total income per user / total income per product. Some ability to create pivot tables and charts would be great! I would also like the ability to Upsell if someone clicks on cancel membership. That would be great to add.

Reasons for Switching to MemberPress

Outstanding Features! Superb Support!

It solves the need of our organization with course and membership management. No plugin in WordPress yet can do such as of writing this review.

Pros

The 2-in-1 feature of Course and Membership plugin for WordPress is very convenient for setting up our course site. The support is also outstanding and helps to solve the errors quickly.

Cons

The limitations in course completion. However integration with other features like gamepress is great

Reasons for Choosing MemberPress

No need to purchase separate license for membership and course plugins

Reasons for Switching to MemberPress

We need to purchase other license for course and membership plugin. So we stick with one plugin that can do both.

Comprehensive WordPress plugin

I utilize MemberPress to form complex enrollment frameworks for nonprofits that require numerous enrollment levels at distinctive costs, counting the capacity to auto-renew enrollments and sent out robotized update emails. For numerous nonprofits, the administrative burden of overseeing participations can be choking. MemberPress makes so much of that work disappear.

Pros

Once set up, the plugin makes taking installments and keeping track of individuals a breeze. It's all for the most part computerized, so there's not much extra exertion that goes into collecting data, sending e-mail reactions, taking installments, etc.

Cons

There's nothing I do not like. Maybe, as a recommendation, there can be a few preset styles for the member's account dashboard in WordPress. In spite of the fact that it's utilitarian and works impeccably, it's maybe a bit essential in plan. It can be effortlessly customized with some HTML and CSS but this takes time and so presets would offer assistance with the plan handle.

Good, but the fact there's no editor built-in...

For the price they're charging and this being a WordPress tool, I expect some sort of appearance / form style editing to be built-in. I was really disappointed to discover that I'd basically have to code much of the appearance and stylistic settings. This makes it really hard to optimize for conversions. With me not being that good at CSS, this also means I'll have to hire a CSS dev to make MemberPress more user-friendly and conversion oriented. There are basically NO appearance editing features built-in, and I find that extremely disappointing.

Pros

Inclusive of just about everything you need to run a membership website

Cons

No built-in appearance editing. For the price they're charging and the fact that this is an annual membership, that should definitely be built-in. There are WP tools that cost WAY less that have appearance editing built-in.

Reasons for Choosing MemberPress

Seemed to be the most inclusive of the features we needed. Support seemed good.

Fantastic Piece of Software

Memberpress offers a much cheaper way to offer an LMS to my client's customers without the subscription requirements that popular all-in-one websites use.

Pros

I purchased this software on behalf of my client, looking to move away from a subscription-based learning management system and host their own. Memberpress offered everything they required (and more) from a full Learning Management System. Setup was extremely easy and was installed on the WordPress site in a matter of minutes. There's great customisation, a whole library of plugins to add additional functionality, and integrates great with other popular software such as MailChimp, Elementor and Stripe. Even features like automatic PDF generation for customer purchases increases the automation and means myself / my client needs to spend less time interacting with the system - which is a bonus in both our eyes. I'm looking forward to continually develop and work with my client with Memberpress and look forward to suggesting it as my go-to software for any future LMS projects.

Cons

There's nothing I don't like. Perhaps, as a suggestion, there could be some preset styles for the member's account dashboard in WordPress. Although it's functional and works perfectly, it's perhaps a bit basic in design. It can be easily customised with some HTML and CSS but this takes time and therefore presets would help with the design process.

Reasons for Choosing MemberPress

Memberpress sounded like a more, well-rounded plugin that offered more functionality for the price paid.
