WEBFI-WordPress-5 Best WordPress Membership Plugins

Are you planning on creating a membership site with WordPress and are unsure what to use? Choosing the right membership plugin is crucial for your business because a better platform means more ability for growth. In this video, Syed and Christina will go over WPBeginner’s top 5 recommendations for membership plugins.

This video is sponsored by MonsterInsights, a powerful plugin to help you use your analytics information to the fullest, take a look at MonsterInsights here:


For our discount, use our code: WPBVIP

Our first recommendation is MemberPress. It is one of the largest and most robust membership solution at the moment, it also sets up many of the required pages for a membership site for you to make the process very straight forward. There are even options for content dripping, different access controls, integrations with popular email services, and even multiple types of gateways. You can find the plugin and apply any discounts we may have negotiated using our affiliate/referral link below:

Second would be LearnDash, it’s a very flexible LMS plugin. This allows you to easily create classes, lessons, or other learning resources for your users. Pre-built in are the options to create quizes, add badges, course specific forums, and other education related needs. You can find LearnDash and apply any discounts we have negotiated using our referral/affilaite link below:

Teachable is another powerful option available for a membership plugin. There is the negative that this is not a WordPress plugin and it is instead its own builder. It is a powerful course builder that you can place on a subdomain for your site and have pre-built tools to help you get up and running. You can find Teachable and apply any discounts we have negotiated using our referral/affilaite link below:

Restrict Content Pro is another contender for a great membership plugin to consider. This is built by the same people behind plugins like Easy Digital Downloads so you know it’s a good company behind it and has many different payment integrations. You can find Restrict Content Pro and apply any discounts we have negotiated using our referral/affilaite link below:

S2Member is the final recommendation we have in our list. The main issue is that for beginners it can be quite difficult to properly set up. Other than that it is a powerful option for an alternative. You can find S2Member and apply any discounts we have negotiated using our referral/affilaite link below:

    Hi guys. I have a product to sell. Not mine. I'll be an affiliate. It's a physical product. If I want to start from scratch. What are the steps? For example. 1.Build a website. 2. Start Blogging. 3. Link Blog to a landing page/Website. 4. Link that to the affiliate site?

    I have a job website and need to build a membership base. I just want new visitors to register before they can access my website. Which of the plugins do you recommend?

  • Art Studio Rome on November 1, 2020

    Great introduction to some of the options. Thank you. I'm sure all of these work in conjunction with video content BUT, which service would you use to deliver the video? Vimeo? AWS? Or? And which of these options has the best integration with some or all of the video-delivery platforms? Thank you in advance for any insight you can provide.

    A friend/client want me to set up a member's site for his upcoming high school reunion. It will be free to join, no payments needs, only uploading "X" number of photo (not as many as on FB, don't have the space) and a detailed profile. What would you recommend? Happy to buy via your link. Tim

    Do you suggest membership plugin to create multi-vendor marketplace?

  • Muhaimin Zamri on January 31, 2021

    Does Memberpress work with multisite? meaning can the plugin be installed across my multisite with one subscription?

  • M D on November 27, 2021

    Talk to me like I’m a 5th grader. 😂

    By setting up a membership on my website am I in a sense creating my own Patreon like page?

    Personally that’s what I prefer. It gives me full control over my supporters instead of an outside company having their emails and it keeps them on my site for other promotions and ways to connect.
