  • Easy To Use Intuitive Setup
  • Drip Feed Content
  • Multiple Payment Processors
  • Email Autoresponder Integration

MemberPress Cons

MemberPress comes at an annual cost, not one time. Really though, with a membership plugin, you want access to timely support and rock solid updates, so paying an annual fee is completely understandable.

My biggest issue with MemberPress has always been the plain looking checkout form. It ugly big time. And if you are not a developer, it’s not going to be easy to improve it. I have raised this concern with the developer, but they haven’t done anything to improve it.

    Thank you for the review. I also watched your tutorial on YouTube. I’m considering this for a fitness/holistic lifestyle coaching site including workouts as well as nutrition, meditation education and videos. There are many to choose from but keep coming back to this. Do you think it would be better than Wishlist or Ultimate Memberhsip pro, the 2 others I keep looking at?

    Thank you

    1. If you are going to be offering online courses, I would suggest looking at LearnDash as you may not need a membership plugin. But if I had to choose, I would go with MemberPress over Wishlist or Ultimate Membership Pro.

  2. I was going to buy MemberPress and convert my membership website but I won’t do it because they recently doubled its the price. The price was 129, now it’s 258. They also placed a fake “countdown timer” with a 50% discount, supposed to go on for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes, the countdown started again. Now they changed the discount to 60% for Black Friday.

    From december 1, what will the real price be? $ 258? I was happy to pay 129/year, but won’t buy if the price is 258, and above all I can’t accept these aggressive marketing strategies that try to force me to buy something because the price will go up in 40 minutes…
    I don’t mind there is a promotion (or a fake one?) going on in this moment, what if next year they double the price again? I will have to change membership plugin one more time.

    Wishlist member may be an older plugin but they are much more serious with the price: they don’t give coupon codes, they charge an honest price for renewal, after you first pay the full amount.

    Thanks for your articles and tutorials, best wishes

  3. Couple questions. Considering this for a sports news publication that will have a mix of free and premium content. Is there a way to make sure users can tell which posts are premium vs. free on the front end? Also, is it possible to customize the log in options depending on the area of the site they are in? For example, if they’re clicking on something premium from the home page, could we redirect them to a sign up page, but if they click on something premium from social, could we have the log in pop up at the post level?

    I was driving myself nuts trying to figure out what subscription management I should use. Luckily I found you review and overview and that sealed the deal. It’s just what I wanted and made sure I clicked using your site. Thanks for finally making my decision process easier. Well done.

  5. Adam,

    Thanks for this review of Memberpress, I’m planning on purchasing within the next 24 hours and will make sure I do so from our site so I can help support you and the great content that you produce.

    I have one question – Can I use pages designed with Beaver Builder and Ultimate Addons with MemberPress. I want to be able to control the content on the various pages that Memberpress directs members to so they only see high quality content on the pages and posts.

    Thanks again.
