I considered a few alternatives before settling for MemberPress. So far, I can say that I made the right choice. Even though it lacks certain features, the core functionality it provides makes it the perfect fit.

Pros

MemberPress gives you all the things you need to build a functional membership site on WordPress. While working on a client's website, it was the only WP membership plugin that allowed me to use a local payment gateway (PayStack) right out of the box by installing a ready-made addon. There was absolutely no need to buy this separately or manually write the code for it.

Also, being able to create corporate membership is a big plus.

Cons

MemberPress lacks a member directory with complete profiles on the front end. I've seen some WP membership plugin with this and this makes one wonder why it's not included.

Alternatives Considered

aMember Pro and Restrict Content Pro

Reasons for Switching to MemberPress

MemberPress seemed to have more features and fitted my client's needs better.

Overall, I generally like MemberPress over other membership platforms for the fact that it is standalone and is censorproof

Pros

MemberPress is the ultimate plugin for monetization of content without the fear of censorship or third party control ( Read: perfect Patreon alternative).

It's extremely easy to set up login pages and membership levels. I can also just put specific content on my site under paywall. Recent addition of MemberPress courses that allows me to price different parts of my course and let my website work for me is the ultimate reason I permanently switched from Patreon. It's a plugin, so they'll probably never censor me.

Cons

I am yet to find anything poor about the plugin otherwise I would definitely have put that here.

Subscription Model has changed - * WARNING* -

Absolutely terrible.

Absolutely terrible.

Pros

Easy to set-up and manage multiple memberships and protect various Wordpress content,

Cons

Memberpress was sold in Dec 2021 [SENSITIVE CONTENT] who has completely changed the plugin and the subscription model.

Unlike other Wordpress plugins, once your 12 month 'licence' expires you are completely locked out from the back-end of the plugin and prohibited from managing any users or memberships unless you pay $$$.

This is completely unethical and we have removed Memberpress from approx 80+ websites we manage for clients.

Teachable and LearnDash

Reasons for Switching to MemberPress

At the time for it's features, but since switching there are better options everywhere.

When I switched to Memberpress, I wanted a member dashboard that linked to my course, live events, facebook group, and had room for featured content. I am very pleased I made the switch. I also wanted to be able to sell membership tiers.

Pros

There are a lot of moving parts in a membership, and MemberPress covers them all. It even includes customizable email templates that are sent out for a variety of communication needs, including membership renewal, reminds them that their credit card is about to expire, etc. I also love that it does not tie me to a certain design, and that I can use my own templates and CSS.

Cons

I felt that there was a lot to learn for onboarding, but such is the case with robust software. Their online articles and videos are very helpful however.

A dream to implement

Reviewed on 08/03/2022

Pros

Setting up a membership site was so easy to do. In the past I've seen clients with hal a dozen plugins to create membership sites, especially if they have Woo as well! But Memberpress wraps everything up neatly and still manages to be time-efficient and optimised for speed. It was really easy to setup and get going, really intuitive.

Cons

I found that some output, for example the "My Account" widget is unable to be styled using settings. If you don't want vanilla you have to break out the Chrome Inspector and create your own custom css. While I can do that, a lot of people cannot.
