MemberPress Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about MemberPress's features:

Trisha C.

Finally, a robust membership platform that integrates into our website

2021-01-18

There has been a slight learning curve coming from a competitor's software, but that is to be expected.

Pros

I also love the ability to create corporate accounts and monthly recurring memberships, and that there are so many available add-ons and third party integrations that we can use.

Cons

We switched from another membership software, so it was a little tricky importing information in a similar way to what we had set up.

Good for Memebership & Content Resriction

Pros

Good Support, Ease of Use, Content Management, User Management with Ecommerce- 3 Plugin in one

Cons

Option to end access immediately if a subscription is cancelled rather than wait for the trial period or bill period over

(Almost) Everything you need

2021-04-30

They are robust and well documented by both MemberPress and the third-party provider.

Pros

The number of integrations available makes this a solid foundation for our online paid content. We are using several integrations but most notable among them are the S3 plugin which let us protect our video content from an AWS storage bucket.

Cons

We had originally purchased MemberPress to act as a Learning Management System (LMS) but we found the newly added Courses module to be too simplistic for our needs.

Fantastic Piece of Software

2021-08-30

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

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.

Cons

Perhaps, as a suggestion, there could be some preset styles for the member's account dashboard in WordPress.

Love this Plugin!

2020-12-09

Pros

I am relatively new to web design and website management so was facing a huge learning curve already but this plugin is soo amazing, easy to use and support is fantastic!

Cons

I wanted all subscriptions to renew and bill on the first of the month initially so was a little disappointed but honestly its not a big deal. It bills on the day of sign up so gives me recurring income more frequently vs. Once per month.

My LMS Choice

2021-02-09

MemberPress fits nicely with my vision for online course creation.

Pros

I needed a learning management system for some online courses that I need to create and MemberPress was my choice.

Cons

I am still in the process of creating my courses with MemberPress, but so far, I haven't encountered any challenges or functionality limitations that impact my desired results.

Daniel F.

The most robust and sensibly designed of the wordpress membership plugins

2017-12-05

Robust wordpress membership platform which we use for delivery of paid courses and learning management.

Pros

The latter approach is excellent for those combining this with custom fields and really customising the admin panel heavily. Integrations are not endless but are well considered and usually best of class i.e.

Cons

Because it's a framework really, it is possible to use memberpress badly if you are not an experienced wordpress developer. Not making good rules for restriction and relying on per page restriction for example can set you up for a messy future and makes you very dependent on memberpress. The forms and payment workflow could be nicer. The user self-service section needs some work although it can be styled with CSS. it would be nice if the defaults were a bit more modern and adapted a bit better to themes. More action based hooks would be useful to make a very customisable membership signup and upgrade flow.

Memberpress seems to be the most comprehensive and powerful membership solution on wordpress

2021-07-08

This all in one plugin allows me to monetize part of my content, to sell my coaching services and now my courses as well !

Pros

The icing on the cake is the ability to sell and manage our courses directly in the Memberpress admin. t's intuitive, easy and quick to create and perfectly integrated...

Cons

I do not have enough perspective to provide feedbacks on the management of memberships and payments.

Great!

2021-04-08

Was able to set up most of my course in an afternoon.

Pros

I like the finished format, easy to navigate and track progress of my online courses. Adding content is very easy.

Cons

Some of the more technical aspects of setup I needed help for, tutorials outside memberpress and tech support. Nothing too tricky though.

Flexible and Extensive Membership Payment and Portal Solution

2021-06-28

We are able to allow new users to sign up, we get paid and can kick off automated scripts that talk to our other website management systems in a streamlined way.

Pros

Makes it very easy to brand and pull into their API to meet our own needs.

Cons

Some nuances in how their code is written and how it works with WordPress that takes time to learn. Can be difficult to add new user subscriptions or upgrade as an admin due to the subscriptions using native Stripe subscriptions - we get why it was done this way though.

The ONLY one

2020-10-22

Sadly it is a little bit hard to customize if you’re new to this and the design with regards to payment methods or log in are flat “boring”. The courses “new feature”, needs a lot of things to improve, I don’t even know how to use it and I can’t use elementor with it and has no quizzes available yet.

Pros

I really love the access restrictions, wherein you can select any content that you want to block.

Cons

The new feature “Courses” needs at lot of improvement and also need more guide on how to use it.

the more I discover it, the more I appreciate it

2020-05-24

I created several member areas on several sub-domains I created online courses and challenges

Pros

what has served me the most so far is the content dripping, the autoresponder and of course the ease of creating member access

Cons

I need to develop the online course part of my activity. I think that if you develop this aspect, you would be really very very complete in terms of your offer.

Solid Product With Good Support

2021-02-09

Customer support has been much better than average. There is a lot of functionality built into the product which can be leveraged over time as needed.

Pros

And, most importantly the import/export of data functionality is easy to use and allows us to keep everything in sync with our master database.

Cons

We had to use a third party plugin to have the login/out status appear on the screen.

Great for multiple types of Memberships

2020-12-29

Easy administration and setup after learning curve.

Pros

With Individual's and corporations using our platform, it was very was to segment each into their own group with specific courses and groups.

Cons

Real life video examples. The learning curve is a bit hard especially with groups/rules/coupons, but after you learn the in/outs of the software, its good.
