We’ve been building membership sites with the MemberPress plugin for a while now. Its simplicity, add-ons, and integrations make it one of the best WordPress plugins in the marketplace.
Building your own membership website is a great way to scale your business, help others master a skill, and build a thriving online community.
Here’s what some experts are saying about it:
WPBEGINNER ranks it number 1 and what I like about their review is that it gives you the PROS and the CONS of this plugin.
MAK gives us a deep dive into this membership plugin for WordPress:
This is a complete MemberPress Review. I cover everything you need to know about MemberPress including the MemberPress Courses add-on which absolutely free. MemberPress also has an amazing Divi integration which allows you to show content based on membership levels. I highly recommend MemberPress not only as a membership plugin but as an all-in-one online course platform.
I have been using Memberpress for the last few years and have learned what it does really well and what it doesn’t do well.
What about the user reviews:
One thing is to give you expert thoughts about this incredible plugin and another is the opinions of real-life users. I believe this is important to listen to because it really gives you a truthful idea of whether they are liked or not.
So, I went fishing for some insightful reviews. Not that I need to be convinced of its functionality and usage but maybe you do. Capterra reviews have some MemberPress plugin reviews for you to have a look at.
Others are proudly saying:
“Comprehensive WordPress plugin”
Overall: 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 sending out robotized update emails. For numerous nonprofits, the administrative burden of overseeing participation 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 planning. It can be effortlessly customized with some HTML and CSS but this takes time and so presets would offer assistance with the plan handle.
“Solid solution for your membership needs ”
Pros: It does exactly what I need at a great price. If you need a membership solution and are using WordPress, I can definitely recommend MemberPress!
Cons: It can take a bit of figuring out to get set up and running. Overall, not to difficult though. They could provide more case uses and how to implement the software.
“Overall, an excellent product.”
Overall: It took some time setting everything up the exact way we needed it, but there are plenty of FAQs and video tutorials that got us there in a fair amount of time. Once set up, editing and tweaking certain things is easy. There haven’t been any issues with payments and debiting our members’ accounts. So far the software has worked exactly as it’s supposed. Overall, we are very happy and will carry on using MemberPress for the foreseeable future.
Pros: -Great support with in-depth FAQs and video tutorials. -No errors or glitches. Everything works the way I’ve set it up to. -Plenty of options and capabilities for what we need now and what we might even use in the future. So many features.
Cons: -Took some time to understand how everything works and to set up everything in the exact way that we needed to use it. -Limited payment gateway support.
Reasons for Choosing MemberPress: A wider range of key features that seemed important for our purposes and it was very highly recommended by other blogs and sites.
“MemberPress Courses is the best out there”
Overall: Overall it’s great once I got it working right with WooCommerce. There are things that can be improved but nothing is a problem right now where it’s too negatively affecting the experience.
Pros: The Courses addon is the main draw for me. It looks the best and is simple to use for the user.
Cons: It’s lack of good integration with WooCommerce. I have to use a 3rd party automation service to connect MemberPress Courses with my WooCommerce store and it’s still, not a problem-free solution. I wish they made real WooCommerce integration.
Reasons for Switching to MemberPress: MemberPress was just much easier to use and set up. And it looks much better than Learn Dash.
And some not so good reviews 👀
“Waste of Time.”
Overall: Many hours were spent trying to make MemberPress do what it could not do. Although the product is good for a new business, it’s really bad for a decades-old one. We thought we would be able to load all the members in, apply a membership type to them and get a bill sent to them. But no, they all have to sign up individually. It’s ridiculous and costs us a lot.
Pros: The MemberPress Groups and Rules are easy to use.
Cons: When we bought MemberPress we thought we would be able to load our existing member database straight in. After a month of trying, MemberPress finally informed me that it was just not possible. All the members had to sign up individually via the website. This was a massive inconvenience. We haven’t completed the transition yet, but I know there will be a lot of members who just can’t be bothered and we will lose them. Our members are our bread and butter. So we have lost income by switching to your product.
