LifterLMS Overview

LifterLMS is a free learning management system for WordPress. They also have paid extensions available to fund the development of the core plugin. It is also the LMS that I use on this website.

LifterLMS Review: Things To Consider

The core plugin is free, but doesn’t come with a payment gateway. You will have to purchase the gateway you want, currently, Authorize.net, PayPal, Stripe, and WooCommerce are available for $99 each.

Customizing colors requires custom CSS, but I find it fairly easy to do.

LifterLMS Coupon / LifterLMS Discount

There are currently no active LifterLMS Coupon or LifterLMS Discounts available. However, if you do purchase LifterLMS through the link on this website, I will give you access to one of my premium training course which normally sells for $49.

LifterLMS Review: Summary

LifterLMS is great. The one thing that I think is insane is their pricing model. Yes I am complaining about pricing.

Truth be told, all you really need to buy is 1 payment gateway. The rest is completely optional.

But man, the price of their bundles. I just want to know what they are smoking to come up with this stuff. I think their community and user base would grow so much faster if they had realistic pricing.

    1. Please take a moment to read the transparency report on my website which clearly says that I am not a paid sponsor for anyone. Horrible performance in relation to what? Are you using cheap hosting, that will produce horrible performance for any plugin? After personally using LifterLMS for the past 3 years, I don’t find it lacking any admin feature.

  1. Hey Adam, in your reviews for Lifter and LearnDash, Lifter is lower on every aspect (reliability, value, support, ease of use)…My questions is…while it’s clear why Lifter is lower on the scale when it comes to pricing, could you share a bit more on why it’s lower on the other 3 scales (ease of use, reliability and support)? Just trying to get some more color around the cons of Lifter as it compares to LearnDash…especially since you have used both…

  2. Hello Adam. Does it provide api to build mobile application.. if not, can you suggest any other lms platform that supports mobile application..

    1. Yes, it will work fine, but as far as the way it looks on the front end, you will need a bit of custom CSS to get it looking good. This is the benefit of the Astra integration, it will look great out of the box.

      1. Dear Adam, I have bought some solutions through your website (Elementor + Lifter LMS pay pal). I did not find an Astra Theme that I liked so I went for OceanWP to build an online course. Could you explain a bit further what you mean by your comment here “Custom CSS to get it looking good”? And how do I get the Lifter LMS course to show on the OceanWP theme? OceanWP will help me further when I can explain to them what needs to be done. Thanking you in advance. Kind regards, Eyrun

  3. Hi Adam,
    First, let me start by saying that I love your tutorials! Now for Lifter LMS, I can’t find the free option on their website, i see that it’s paid only option. Am I’m missing something?
