MemberPress is a WordPress plugin used to secure and sell content on your website. With its extensive features and integrations, MemberPress can handle just about any membership website requirements.
Restrict Content Pro is a membership plugin for WordPress based websites. It will allow you to secure and sell content and includes a number of add-ons to cover most requirements.
Current Pricing: $129 – $349
Current Pricing: $99 – $249

This will be the tightest comparison of membership plugins because they are both really close in features, ease of use, and solid backing. If I was to give an edge to one, it would be MemberPress because I have personally experienced better support from them, more personalized support, where I really felt like they wanted to do anything to help me. I am not saying the RCP support is bad, because it's not, but it's not as great as MemberPress. Features, prices, etc are all going to be similar, but even though I am giving the edge to MemberPress, you really can't go wrong with either.

  • Powerful Access Rules

Restrict Content Pro Pros

  • Simple Setup Process
  • Many Integrations
  • Reporting Dashboard
  • WooCommerce 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.

Restrict Content Pro Cons

On the surface, Restrict Content Pro seems reasonably priced, but when you start to dig into what comes with the various packages, you start to see that it's an expensive solution. Many features that should be standard are only available in the $249 per year package. The most notable missing feature is content drip.

  1. Thanks for sharing … I choose RCP ultimate finally. Consider the increased price and annual payment, I thinkthe price would be lower using RCP Ultimate. I want using my membership for long time, not only one or two years, therefore at least for 5-10 years investment, RCP is the winner.

  2. Thanks for this. Restrict content pro has the worst support ever… I purchased their licensed version and one expiration they won’t give reply even to questions related to technical problems… I have used a dozen premium plugins but no one has ever bluntly replied me that they will not provide support as the licence is expired. Stay away from Restrict Content pro
