Pay Attention to These 4 Things When Choosing a Membership Plugin

Having a hard time deciding which membership plugin is for you?

Although the main feature of a membership plugin is to give you control of the content in a restricted ‘members-only’ area of your site, there’s a lot more to consider when selecting the right one for your site.

So, what should you keep an eye out for when choosing a membership plugin?

Tune in to hear four factors that could be huge game changers and make all the difference between making the right choice and making the wrong choice when it comes to your membership plugin. 

Episode Summary:

  • Why the customer support options offered by the developers of the plugin are so important
  • What to look out for when looking at the specifics of the license that your plugin comes with and the potential restrictions
  • The problem with having a plugin with encrypted code including customization drawbacks and potential issues with your web host
  • Why you should check when the plugin was last updated

Key Quotes:

If you bought a plugin where the only support available is through a forum or a Facebook group where the developer themselves isn't present, you’re relying on other users to support you, and that might not be great if you have an emergency.”

If the developer of your membership plugin hasn't released a new update in several years, and that is a huge, huge red flag. Chances are there's potentially security issues.” 

 “Make sure that you pay attention and do a little bit of research on the nature of the licence required for your membership plugin. Make sure you know if there’s any restrictions, how many websites you can use our plugin for and make sure you're aware of any recurring costs that you're going to have to keep paying in order to use that plugin.”
