I have been using Memberful for a couple of months now and think it is great. Support is awesome and prompt. I would recommend it for anyone creating or updating a membership site.
I've been using Memberful for several years now. One of the things I like about them most is that they're focused on constantly making the service better without constantly adding new features and making it bloated and difficult to use. I use Memberful for my Homeowners Association (HOA) site where all members are free (yes, Memberful supports that!). I also use it for a membership site that requires a subscription to access premium content. It works perfectly for my needs and it's easy to use shortcodes and functions. For example, I use functions on template pages to show and hide certain information depending on if they're logged in or not, and also what level of membership they have. Additionally, it fully integrates with Discourse, which is what I use for my forum. I love this service!
plugin does not secure content. i can still access "restricted" content when not logged in. would not recommend
There are lots of options out there for providing a paywall in front of your content. Memberful provides the perfect balance between the two extremes. On one extreme you have overly complicated corporate systems that are overpriced and antiquated. On the other extreme you have sites that control everything and try to do everything for you — on those you have very little customizability. Memberful is the best of both worlds. It provides modern features (webhooks, OAuth, Wordpress integration, an API, etc) without being overly complicated. Because it integrates with Wordpress easily and any website with some development — it gives you the power to set up however you need to. Add to that, the customer service is top notch.
I use the plugin for an online jazz piano lessons website and love the integrations, functionality and features. The set up is simple and the payment processing panel is very well designed and conversion centric. All payments are deposited directly into my Stripe account which makes things super easy to manage. From an SEO standpoint, the plugin allows you to have two versions of the same page, 1 for paying members and the other version full of copy and teaser videos to increase search engine visibility and new member acquisition. I always recommend this plugin... It's not overly complicated and just does the job, allowing you to focus on running your membership site! Hayden Hill Founder www.pianogroove.com
It broke my site giving a 500 error. I didn't have access to anything, including my admin panel. I went into cpanel and removed the plugin but that didn't do a thing. I had to have my hosting company fix it. Thank goodness they did and for free!
