Comparing Wishlist Member to MemberPress is quite easy. It's like comparing an old tube television to a beautiful flat panel. Out with the old in with the new. Wishlist Member is an old archaic membership plugin that is extremely tedious to use where MemberPress is brilliantly easy to use, it's full-featured, and has fantastic support that your business can rely on. With MemberPress you can have a membership site running in a matter of minutes, with Wishlist Member it takes hours to figure out how to do anything because nothing about it is intuitive. It was great 4 years ago, but it just hasn't kept up.

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.

Wishlist Member Cons

Sadly Wishlist Member is still the same membership plugin that it was 5 years ago. Many of the modern features you would want, like content drip, is just a major pain to implement.
