Simple and Effective

By IAmMarchHare on September 12, 2023

I was skeptical about this plugin, as there are some others that are overkill, overpriced and/or ineffective, but this one really works.

Works GREAT as advertised ...

Excellent plugin for User accounts

#1 for role-based membership management!

By zerocodepluginman on September 7, 2023

You won't find a plugin with such a simple setup and incredible documentation (shortcodes & instructions) in the universe!

Although it is freebie, you may be surprised by the e-mail support provided.

I made a complex membership setup with zero code knowledge. It took my only 5 minutes to create membership levels, pricing, connecting to Stripe account and take test with sandbox mode.

I couldn't do this with WooCommerce's 3 premium plugins. The most important point is that the restriction and redirection of the pages to be accessed according to membership level roles. Roles are solved with a few clicks. Before Simple Membership Plugin, I tried for 1 week to do this and I couldn't!

We owe thanks to the developer of this plugin, folks!

This plugin is amazing!

We used it to create a membership-area for our choir and it was the best decision to use the WP Membership Plugin. Easy and many options to configure.

Simple but Effective

This plugin does just what we need to maintain private section of the website for our Board members

Did not work

By thompsonaire on August 12, 2023

Loaded the plugin. Created several membership levels. Went to create a couple of sample memberships and could not. Tried 9 times to create different members and memberships and managed to get ZERO members. Also could not see a way to display the members on the front side of the site. So DELETE.. I do not mind spending time learning a program but if I can not get it to do simple things (Like being able to create a "Member" in a membership plugin. WTF???

Excelente plugin, lo hace prácticamente todo. Lo recomiendo 100%.

Concurrent Login & Password sharing are a security issue

By vivobook on August 3, 2023

The plugin unfortunately does not provide any safeguards against concurrent logins, thus allowing password sharing and posing significant challenges, especially for those who aim to monetize their memberships.

Remarkably, this issue has persisted since 2018, and it is astonishing that despite numerous user complaints, a solution has not been implemented. Regrettably, the 3rd party solutions proposed by the plugin's author in the forum have proven ineffective with this specific plugin.

Addressing this security concern would undoubtedly be a substantial enhancement. Despite this drawback, it should be acknowledged that the plugin is otherwise exceptional in its performance.
