s2Member – Membership Plugin for All Kinds of Memberships, Content Restriction & Member Paid Access Subscriptions

Description

Great membership plugin! Over 11 years of experience, development, releases… Still going and growing!

Sell unlimited memberships, turning free subscribers into members (→ s. to member → s2Member), single payment or recurring paid subscriptions. Easy and quick to use. Protect your membership content in a moment, and a moment later be ready to get payments for member access. Easy to configure and very flexible. Protect the whole site, nothing, or just parts, even member files for paid downloads.

Packed with features, but not required to use all, just those you want. Some of them:

  • Member user levels and custom access capabilities
  • Membership content protection (post, page, category, tag, etc)
  • Protect anything served by WP (post types, URLs)
  • Member file protection (sell downloads)
  • Prevent member account sharing (limit IPs, simultaneous logins)
  • Protect accounts (limit failed login attempts)
  • Cool security/trust badge with your domain
  • PayPal Standard buttons for membership payments (more in Pro)
  • Automatic member access demotion at end of paid access time
  • Tracking software integration (affiliates, etc)
  • Email services (Mailchimp, etc)
  • Notifications (signups, payments, etc)
  • Integrate with bbPress, BuddyPress for member communities
  • Compatible with any well coded theme (Elementor, Divi, etc)
  • Customize the WP login/registration look
  • Custom redirection after member login
  • Create custom profile fields for member accounts
  • Customize the user welcome email

Not needed to know any PHP code or be a developer. Only code needed is copy-paste wp shortcodes, like for the paypal buttons.

I've been using s2Member for 9 years and finally have the opportunity to update the theme to Divi. While working on reformatting page designs, I noticed that some of the s2Member shortcode was not working. I reached out to support and within an hour, Cristián responded. He gave some suggestions. It took about 3 back and forth emails to nail down the solution. All of this took place in only a few hours. Amazing support of a high-end plugin and much appreciated. This is one of the reasons I stick with s2Member. Support has always been great! Thanks Cristián!

After I have installed this plugin, it was looking good and the functionality of the plugin was great. But for some reason, I was having a problem logging in with my sidebar login menu. At first, I was not sure why then my user contacted me and told me that they can not log in and were having errors. After I deactivate this plugin the error went away and the user was able to log in with no problems.

This membership plugin does a lot and has many, many configuration options to achieve whatever you want. Cristian went out of his way and helped me diagnose a problem restricting part of another plugin. I received extremely quick and reliable support.

I am not sure what some of the users here have been doing but I have built with most Membership plugins and literally dozens using S2 Pro and I can tell you, bar none it is the best of all of them. Extremely powerful, anything you might want to do it can do. There is a strong S2 Member community forum with all the answers you might need, a pool of skilled developers and the S2 pro deal is the software deal of a lifetime. php scripting anyone!! Given the huge power and value of S2 Pro for literally almost peanuts it's unrealistic to expect "on call support" but there is support, and really you won't need it, the plugin is extremely well documented inside Wordpress admin and there is all the information you might need in the free community website. The same developers do their own cache plugin works works perfectly with S2 pro called comet cache ( another excellent deal), I highly recommend you try it out, my thanks go to the S2 developers for their fine software

I bought S2Member a few weeks ago thinking this would solve my issue of providing memberships on my website. Unfortunately, this plugin is incredibly limited. There's no cart integration which means you're stuck forcing users to purchase your subscriptions separately from other products/services you might have available. On top of that, S2Member is incapable of minifying it's JavaScript files. This is something minor when it comes to SEO, but the fact that it causes the issue without any indication down the road it will be a priority. Lastly, I emailed them (because it's the only way to contact them) to ask for a refund. It's been a month and I haven't gotten a response. I'm not sure why it's ratings are so high in the first place.
