At the end of the day, both will get the job done. But the real story is about integrations and cost.
MemberPress is easier to use and a bit less complicated to set up (because it has fewer options). It has fewer integrations then Wishlist and will cost significantly more per year. Also, keep in mind that the cost of MemberPress doubles after your first year of owning it so you are looking at 3X – 5X the annual cost of Wishlist Member.
Wishlist, on the other hand, has more integrations and capabilities but I feel like it has too many options and could feel overwhelming.
But on the flip side, Wishlist is a lot more affordable, has many more integrations, and also has some more features that you don’t get with MemberPress.
For me, I would choose Wishlist because it works with the tools I use and is a much better value.
I came to this page after searching Member Press VS Restrict Content Pro. I noticed that the review details on this page for (Memberpress Cons) are the same cons given for (Restrict Content Pro).
Thanks for all you do for the WP community.
I am not seeing that.
Curious if your view of Wishlist Member has changed given the supposed updates and LTD on Appsumo?
Yes price is a factor and you can’t beat the LTD price.
I am a huge fan of DAP for the membership plugin, but they have become a bit bloated & conflicty with plugins.
I have tried Wishlist and Memberpress but they are lacking shortcode customization that DAP made super easy. (where you can drop shortcode in to any designed page)
What other member plugins are out there?
Also give Restrict Content Pro a shot.
Are there specific shortcodes you are looking for? We did a complete overhaul when we built version 3.0. I’m curious if there are specific shortcodes that are missing. If so, I’m sure we could likely add them.
We’d love to have you do a new review. Our team completely redesigned the interface in WishList Member version 3.0. We’ve had some amazing feedback from our customers since the release in mid-April 2019. Our integration with Zapier has been well received and more features are coming soon.
My apologies Tracy for not getting this post updated to reflect the new version of WishList Member. I know you had reached out over the summer, but it was quite a busy summer for me. I try to get to this in the next week or so.
Hi Adam, thanks a bunch. I just spotted this comment reply right after I sent you an email follow up. I apologize for the repetition. Thanks again!
which one best integrates with learndash?
That would be Member Press.
We worked with LearnDash to build out a solid integration from WishList Member. It will be released with our next update which is currently scheduled for next week. 🙂
Thank you Adam for the review. Also, thank you Tracy for the information regarding LearnDash. This is important feature in regards to what I am looking for in a membership app for my WordPress site.
You’re welcome. We’re about to release a new update with more LMS plugin integrations. We also have an integration with BuddyBoss coming up as well.
any change of heart since the release of Wishlist Member 3?
I’ll have to check that out. Odd they are still rocking the same website from 2013.
How about changing the registration date? I mean customizing the registration date? Is that possible with MemberPress?
Not sure I follow your question.
According to Memberpress they do support coupons. Am I misunderstanding. https://docs.memberpress.com/article/143-creating-a-coupon
You must be misunderstanding something because nowhere am I saying it doesn’t support coupons. But thanks for making this comment and leaving that link.
