What to look for in a membership plugin
There are several things to consider when looking for a membership plugin:
Content dripping: This is the practice of releasing content to members at pre-set intervals over a period of time — for example, a course that sends modules out by email once a week. This is a common feature in membership plugins, but some are limited to the creation of locked website content.
Content expiration: This option allows you to limit the length of time members have access to certain content.
Community creation: One of the best ways to get people invested in your membership site is to turn it into a community. Some membership plugins offer built-in community functions, such as forums; others offer integrations with specialized forum plugins.
Subscription types: Some plugins may only allow you to create one type of paid membership, while others offer tiered payment plans.
Subscription management: Your members should be able to change their subscription level, pause their subscription or cancel at any time.
Coupons: You want to be able to offer coupons and other types of discounts to new members during promotional periods.
Ecommerce integration: If you eventually want to sell locked content as products, look for a plugin capable of integrating with WooCommerce or another ecommerce plugin.
Email marketing integration: The membership plugin you choose should integrate with your current email marketing service provider. This will allow you to send automated members-only campaigns via email.
Customization: Look for a plugin that allows you to customize the checkout process. You may also want to be able to customize the appearance of pages involved in the checkout process.
Payment processing options: Some plugins are only compatible with PayPal; others accept payment via credit card using Authorize.net or Stripe. To maximize your money-making capabilities, look for a plugin that allows customers to choose their preferred payment method.
Ease of use: The best membership plugin is the one that feels intuitive to use, so you should be able to set things up without extensive tech knowledge.
Documentation and support: When you don’t know what to do, you should have an easy time finding answers, so the membership plugin you choose should have comprehensive tutorials available. You also want to consider what level of support is available — and look at reviews to determine how helpful that support actually is.
