Wishlist Member Review 2021

Wishlist Member is one of the first WordPress membership plugins right when having a membership website became a thing. In 2020 they released a completely new version to bring it up to par with other membership plugins.

Ease Of Use


High marks because of the new content control feature, but they can make improvements to simplify the options.

Wishlist Member Review: Wrap Up

If you asked me a year ago if I would use Wishlist Member, the answer would be a resounding “hell no”. But this new version has caused me to have a change of heart.

Wishlist Member is the only membership plugin that integrates with the tools I use. No other membership plugin has shown interest in adding integrations as Wishlist does.

The price is right at $147 for a single site license (compare that to MemberPress or others). It’s the best value for a membership plugin I have come across.
