MemberPress Vs Restrict Content Pro Comparison 2018

Updated: September 3, 2018
Filed Under:

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.

MemberPress Things To Consider

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 Things To Consider

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.

MemberPress Review Summary

As far as membership plugins go, you will be hard-pressed to find one that is better then MemberPress. It is very simple to setup and manage membership websites and their support will be there for you when you need them.

Restrict Content Pro Review Summary

Restrict Content Pro is a serious plugin to consider using for your membership website. Sadly many basic features are only available in the $249 per year package. Now if you are a web developer, and are going to use RCP on many websites, this cost is not that big of a deal, but if you just need it to power 1 website, it's expensive.

One of the interesting things is that this is just about the only reliable membership plugin for WordPress that still offers a lifetime plan, but at a fairly steep price, $499

  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

  3. Hi Adam, have you tried WooCommerce Memberships? I used it 2 years ago bundled with WooCommerce Subscriptions for a subscription website. Do you know how does it compare to Memberpress?

      1. Thank you Adam. I have also found WooCommerce support disappointing, but in my case WooCommerce was necessary. The documentation is pretty good though.
