Inspired by many other businesses in the WordPress ecosystem that have been sharing their revenue numbers and other details behind their businesses, we’ve decided to post a transparency report of our own. I hope this information will help developers who are interested in transitioning from a consulting business to a products-based business. We’re also launching our new PMPro (more…)
Hi, I’m Kim Coleman, founder and designer of Paid Memberships Pro. I created Paid Memberships Pro because I saw a real need for an open-source solution to help bloggers monetize site content. I’m excited we’ve expanded PMPro to support broader use-cases, including Association-type websites, video bloggers, e-learning and more.
Sites running Paid Memberships Pro use it to:
Manage professional organizations with thousands of members.
Easily manage customized registration information and recurring dues – streamlining offline processes and providing an online value-add component to your community’s members.
Get paid for E-Learning and digital courseware.
Forgo third-party solutions and manage the entire experience of your E-Learning curriculum for any delivery method including drip-feed, webcast, audio/video, downloadables and discussion.
Accept paying subscriptions for on-demand video.
Put your valuable digital content behind an easy-to-access paywall to create a recurring revenue stream, turning your passion for production into a “make money in your sleep” business.
Struggling to find a membership plugin flexible enough to meet your needs?
Paid Memberships Pro was programmed “the WordPress way”—our code is developer-friendly, not obfuscated, and easy to customize via free add-ons or your own code.
Getting lost in pages of complicated settings and unnecessary features?
Having trouble configuring or getting support for premium (pricey) software?
Our code is 100% GPL and free. Support is what you pay for here, and our showcase of happy customers will tell you we deliver.
Businesses of all types recommend Paid Memberships Pro:
No other membership plugin is as customizable as Paid Memberships Pro. I’m able to help my members move forward in their careers by designing a site around their needs – not around the capabilities of the plugin.
PMPro is the plugin that has changed the way I do business. PMPro’s ample developer documentation made it all pretty easy for me, and I can’t wait to find out what features are added next!
I discovered Paid Memberships Pro whilst looking for something to integrate with the LearnDash LMS. I’m really pleased with your how your plugin works and look forward to using it on future sites. Thanks for your generosity in releasing such a great piece of software.
I am not a developer, but I found it very easy to set up different membership levels and membership charges. PMPro is very flexible. I would recommend this application (plugin) as a perfect solution to website owners building a paid membership clientele.
We looked at several other membership plugins and PMPro was the clear winner. We needed something that could be highly customized and PMPro was the only answer. The add-on library has been a big help as well. Every time we want to implement some new membership features, chances are they’re already done and are just a couple clicks away from being implemented.
I used Wishlist Member for years, and Paid Memberships Pro is now my go to membership software for WordPress. It is truly open source and from what I can tell, endlessly customizable. I implement a lot of membership systems and so far, this has been the most enjoyable one to use and setup. The seamless integration with Stripe, easy to setup membership pages, and the fact that Jason and the team share code snippets proactively to members makes using this plugin a terrific experience. Even if you’re not a developer like me, the premium access to forums and recipes are guaranteed to save you development cost for any customization you need. My only regret is that I didn’t start using it sooner.
I’ve tried a handful of other “Top” rated plugins but PMPro was definitely the easiest to implement. Everything worked as it was supposed to. That bundled with the fact that it’s free!! I don’t think you can beat it. I paid the $97 for additional support, and it was well worth it. The add-ons, plus the fact that you can use native WP plugins to add more functionality make this plugin truly worth using.
