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.

Most sites running Paid Membership Pro launch in under 10 minutes. Check out the installation video if you don’t believe us.

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:
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.
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!
Paid Memberships Pro is the easiest membership tool for WordPress if you want to start taking payments immediately with little hassle. Setup is quick and the documentation is thorough when required, but I have not found much outside of the available add-ons that I need.
I was initially worried about the level of complexity PMPro had, and whether it would do everything I needed it to, but it was simple to set up (with my limited Wordpress knowledge) and easy to customise, plus the support offered when I upgraded my subscription and everything I got access to in the forum was well worth it.
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.
Paid Memberships Pro has allowed us to build a scalable solution for our subscription site. We don’t have to think about the smaller details because the plugin and team at Paid Memberships Pro has done that for us. This has saved me development time and costs and has allowed us to build something that we’re really proud of and has allowed us to build a real business upon.
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.
Paid Memberships Pro took my classroom website and allowed me to turn it into a business. I was able to get started in just a month or two, and now have 500,000 visitors monthly from all over the world, generating a healthy supplement to my job at the school. Paid Memberships Pro makes it so easy, I can generate twice my teacher’s pay in just my free time after school!
I was a bit hesitant to use a WordPress plugin for a membership site but Paid Membership Pro was one of the best decisions we made in starting my wife’s online fitness site. The plugin allowed us quickly set up signups, payments, emails, membership maintenance and more. Not only did it save us hundreds of development hours but it scaled well too. It really helped us jump start her business! The support is wonderful. This is definitely a well maintained product that you can trust.
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.
