Pros
It's important that my clients have a product that works and doesn't keep asking for money, the more you ask for money the less they like a product regardless of how awesome it is.

KP

Krystyna P.

I love how "lightweight" this software is. If you're looking to create a course, but don't want quizzes and bunch of the overhead that comes with a full LMS, RCP is a great solution.

WD

Will D.

I love the ability to easily create a variety of membership levels as well as different discount codes. I also love the variety of add-ons that give additional functionality.

SG

Simon G.

Cons
Then RCP (now iThemes) told me that we needed to upgrade the RCP plug-in to fix the issue. Again, no offer to credit our account or pay for the chargebacks from angry subscribers.

NS

Nick S.

It is confusing and hard to use, especially for non-technical users.

Jennifer K.

Now I need to manually prepare legally qualifying invoices to any member who asks for this. The ugly black buttons don't respond to the theme styling.

The "Air Traffic Control App" of Content Lockers and Membership Access for Wordpress

Reviewed 2 years ago

RCPs best feature is their support. This is not initially a selling point, as most compare features. But their support is outstanding, which is important when you are relying on a plugin to capture revenue for a site.

Pros

The software that Air traffic controllers use to track and route flights HAS to work. Likewise, Restrict Content Pro software is robust. It just works. Every time. All the time

Cons

RCP works because it limits itself to core features vs "bells and whistles." This can be annoying when it comes to features like social login, and a slick UI (which require a somewhat clunky 3rd party integration). that being said, the sites I have RCP running on, run, and run, and run. They require little maintenance and never break.

Vendor response

Hi Anthony, thanks for writing a review. We typically stick to strengthening our core features to keep it lean. As you know this means that RCP won't be the perfect fit for all use cases. We greatly appreciate your constructive feedback and are quite proud that our support team has been able to help you along your journey! However, it seems that your team's experience in a variety of sites reflects that RCP is not 100% suitable for all use cases and this is true.

Very well worth the money, but does need some improvements for professional use.

Reviewed 2 years ago

The response time of the help desk is very good. Often the same day or the next day. This is way better than my experience with WooCommerce. They easily let me wait 14 days before I am worth their time to answer. I'm not always very happy with their answers, but I must respect their position.

Pros

The option of group memberships is important for our business model. Installation is easy, settings and features are abundant.

Cons

The PayPal API keys are plainly visible to any admin. Other plugin developers regularly ask admin access to help solve a problem. I hesitate to grant them admin access because if I grant access to the wrong person, I may end up with an empty PayPal account. It regularly misses a PayPal payment, after which the member receives an email that their membership has ended. This leads to unnecessary communication...

Thanks for the detailed review Hank! We appreciate the feedback.

I wouldn't use any other software

Reviewed 2 years ago

My overall experience is extremely positive. In fact, I just pointed another client to use RCP and out of the other 3 platforms they were looking at, they decided to use RCP for their website needs. I'm very happy with this product and the customer service is usually always quick to respond!

Pros

Mainly, I appreciate the purpose this software provides. I did a lot of research for other WordPress platforms and this one kept showing up. I even tested other platforms and RCP outranked the rest of those I tested in performing the areas of focus needed.

Cons

The only thing I like least is there's some areas that are not as customizable as others. For instance, the registration page. I wish there was a way to style this a bit differently as it looks very stale and formal. Maybe some day in the future, there will be different registration templates to choose from.

Vendor response

Hi Tim, thanks for the review and feedback! Glad to hear that we've been able to help you, as we take pride in our support.

Best plugin for setting up and running a membership/course site

Reviewed 2 years ago

I am a soloprenuer and was looking for a software to help me setup and run a membership/course site. I'm not a developer but I have experience with wordpress, so it was quite easy to setup and install. I had some issues at first with Stripe processing payments, but a quick email to support helped me troubleshoot the web hooks issue I had. Every time I've had a question or issue the support team has gotten back to me within 24 hours and has always had a solution. In fact once they offered to log into my site and correct the problem for me-which was a huge timesaver.

Pros

I love how "lightweight" this software is. If you're looking to create a course, but don't want quizzes and bunch of the overhead that comes with a full LMS, RCP is a great solution. It's really easy to set-up, I'm not a developer and was able to set everything up quickly and easily.

Cons

If I had to pick a con of the software it would be the way it handles upgrades during free trials. Right now if a user upgrade tiers during a free-trial they get charged right away for the new tier they upgraded to.

Vendor response

Hi Will, thanks for writing a review. Thanks for explaining your use case and we're glad to hear that our support team has taken care of you. Your feedback is appreciated!
