Restrict Default Content
Secure your pages, posts, blocks, and categories. Show an excerpt, “sneak peak” or partial content or completely hide restricted content. Set a custom message for users or visitors when they attempt to access protected content.
Restrict Single Pages
Allow members to purchase individual content, sell one-time access, or allow a single category purchase for a flat price.
Allow members to drip feed access to a series of content according to a schedule based on their membership level start date.
Offer each member a unique page for direct communication. Design custom member homepages by level and adjust navigation menus to highlight important links for each membership level.
Create Directories and Profiles
Allow users to browse and search public or members-only directories for a robust community or listings site.
Create a complete membership offering with unique pricing and content access for each level. Members can hold one or more member levels at a time.
Offer individual or organizational memberships with child accounts linked to a paying parent account.
Set up a membership site to accept applications and process dues for an offline community, like a trade association, professional association, or member-supported organization.
Collect User Fields by Membership Level
Capture custom profile information by membership level for public or admin-only display. Fields are stored as WordPress user meta.
Member Email Communications
Customize the content and design of every message sent to members, including membership confirmation, payment invoices, and expiration notices.
Sync Roles and Membership Levels
Link a membership level to a core WordPress role or create a new role and define custom capabilities based on your membership features.
Flexible Membership Level Pricing
Configure levels for free or with many pricing structures. Levels can be free, one-time payment, or a recurring subscription such as annual, monthly, weekly, daily or hourly charges.
Recurring Payments and Subscriptions
Process recurring payments and create an order for each successful payment made. Failed payments will retry and cancel according to your settings and membership status.
Customizable Membership Trial Periods
Offer free or reduced price trial periods and optionally require a payment method to auto-start the subscription when the trial ends. Offer a trial period that differs from your recurring billing period.
Customize Member Renewal Dates
Offer rolling membership or force all memberships to renew on a specific day of the month or year.
Sales & Revenue
Know exactly how well your membership site is doing with up to date sales and revenue reports. Filter the Sales or Revenue report by membership level and time period (day, month, and year), and compare data to the “average” trendline for the filtered view.
Signups and Cancellations
View membership signups, expirations, and cancellations by day, month, or year. Compare signups to cancellations or expirations.
Member Visits, Views, and Logins
Explore overall site traffic and dive into specific statistics per member. We also offer custom methods to track user activity by membership level in Google Analytics.
Members List View
View a report of all members and filter or sort by level, start date, expiration, and more.
Member Value Report
A report that highlights your most loyal members by the total revenue they have spent with your membership.
Order Management for Admins
View all orders for new and recurring payments. Filter orders by status, date, membership level, discount code and more.
Add Members Manually
Manually create users and update their membership level, expiration date, and subscription details as the site administrator.
Import and Export Members
Perform an initial import of your complete member database and maintain your data as a single point of truth. Membership information can be exported to use in spreadsheets, custom reports, CRM tools, for periodic mailings, and more.
Require Approval for Membership
Restrict membership level signup and require an admin to approve a member. Levels can require an application and charge a fee, or offer a free application to unlock the premium (paid) access.
Membership Manager Role
Give a user specific access to manage the “Memberships” area of your WordPress dashboard without giving them the full capabilities of the administrator role. You can adjust which specific admin areas of PMPro the user can access.
Frontend Login and Password Reset
Give members a seamless user experience to login or reset their password via a frontend page on your site. You can block access to the WordPress dashboard and hide the Toolbar based on member role.
Frontend User Profiles
Allow users to manage their own profile information, including default fields, their account password, and update any custom fields you have added for their level.
Membership Account Dashboard
Members can view their active membership, past invoices, update their subscription payment method, change levels, or cancel their account.
Member Directory & Profile Pages
Create a public or members-only directory and individual profile pages for each member. Your directory or profile page can be customized with your desired user fields and additional content such as an image, download, or embedded video.
Limit Post Views
Restrict the number of protected pages a non-member or lower tier member can access until they hit a paywall.
Advanced Levels Page
