“Tried & True WishList Member Is For You”

I probably overdid it in the Pro’s category but I’ve been a huge fan of WishList Member for many years. I have used way more membership plugins than I’d care to say and still use a couple of them – mainly because I’m too lazy to switch them, and if it ain’t broke don’t fix them. I can say though that if any of those other membership plugins ever do break it is an easy choice to move them over to a WishList Member set up. WishList Member has set the bar pretty high. So if anyone reading this is not sure about which membership plugin to use then I can highly suggest you try WishList Member – you will not be disappointed.

“A premier membership option”

WishList is a great plugin. It’s just not something that you can jump into and play around with to get a feel for how things work. It works best when you take the time to actually watch their tuorials and then try to use it.

“The Best Membership Software EVER - Especially for Infusionsoft”

WishList Member is the best membership software I have ever used. As a Membership Site Specialist, I’ve created hundreds of member sites for both myself and my clients over the years. I’ve used them all… None of them compare to WishList for a simple piece of software that you can install easily and set up quickly. I’ve integrated WishList with everything there is – quickly and easily – and now with their direct integration with Infusionsoft with WishList Member For Infusionsoft (WLMIS), it just gets better. I can now add people to membership levels based on their actions on the site, or even for clicking on a link in an email. I can track where they go through the members area, and trigger actions like sending them emails based on what they’ve done. This is phenomenal as I can send them emails based on sales pages for products they’ve looked at, and not purchased – all within the software itself. And if a customer’s card fails for a Subscription Payment..? WLMIS allows the customer to add a new credit card within the site itself. No more fussing about getting them to enter a new credit card through Infusionsoft which ends up confusing the customer. I can also give bonus access to other memberships I or my clients have – all seamlessly within the one platform. No more unsecure links or manual adds to memberships any more. WishList have created one of the best membership platforms today. I can’t recommend it highly enough. It is by far the easiest membership software to use software on the market today, and it’s no wonder it’s been #1 for so many years.

“Outstanding membership site software”

I have tried several membership site software products in the past, and then I found Wishlist Member. Since I am a long time WordPress user, I am very comfortable with using Wishlist because it integrates so well with WordPress. I can post content on my WordPress membership site, and then control if the content is protected for members only, if it is viewable for non-members, or if it is just for people with a certain level of membership (i.e. gold members vs. silver members). Wishlist has many features which will help a membership site owner customize the member’s experience. For example, I can set what a person sees right after signing up, which can be different from where they go when they log in later on. I can automate the release of content, and a whole lot more. The core software provides the the core functionality and enough to run a successful membership site. There are also plugins which help you to customize your site even further. Wishlist does integrate with other systems (ie. CRM systems, payment systems). The integration is quite good, but not flawless. I have never found software that is perfect for what I want it to do for integration with a CRM, and this is the same for Wishlist. That said, the integration is quite good, and with some minor adapting, I have been able to make wishlist do what I want it to do to run my membership site. Customer support has been very helpful and responsive, and they update regularly – often incorporating customer’s concerns/questions into the next update. Overall, excellent and easy to use membership site software.

Tired of clunky? Switch to simplicity.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WishList Member Questions

Answer: Absolutely. WishList Member is thoroughly tested to ensure it functions with the latest version of WordPress. Any adjustments or new features within WordPress that may affect WishList Member are addressed as quickly as possible upon the release of a new version of WordPress. Heck, we actually run our own membership sites using WishList Member so it’s in our best interest to make sure it’s up to date. 😉

Answer: The latest versions of WishList Member require that PHP 5.4+, MySQL 5.0+ (MySQL 5.5+ recommended) and Apache 2 (with mod_rewrite enabled) be installed on the server and have been developed for optimal use with WordPress 4.0 or higher. We also recommend to avoid cheap shared hosting environments as much as possible as they can lead to potential issues on sites with large numbers of members (500+).

Answer: Yes. Members can both be imported and exported using WishList Member. A .csv template is provided to you for importing members from another system and if you wish to export your members, you can export them all at once or by membership level using the WishList Member export feature.

Answer: WishList Member currently includes full integration with the following: PayPal, Stripe, Infusionsoft, ClickBank, PayPal Pro, WooCommerce, ThriveCart, Authorize.net, Recurly, 1ShoppinCart (API), 2Checkout, eWay, JVZoo, Pin Payments, SamCart, Premium Web Cart, UltraCart, Red Oak Cart, Cydec and more. WishList Member™ also offers a simple integration option which can be used with payment providers not listed in the full integration list.

However, a simple integration requires a site admin to manually cancel a membership level within WishList Member if a user cancels payment or if payment is unsuccessful. The full integration options will handle the cancellation process automatically. That means if payment stops, they are automatically blocked from accessing protected content when the full integration option is used.

There is also a Generic integration option that allows for full integration using a more technical set up process.

Answer: WishList Member currently integrates with: aWeber, aWeber API, MailChimp, Constant Contact, GetResponse, GetResponse API, iContact, Infusionsoft, ActiveCampaign, AutoResponse Plus, Interspire Email Marketing, Madmimi, arpReach and more. There is also a Generic option that allows for an integration to be set up with AutoResponder options not listed above.

Answer: Yes. You can accomplish this by setting up a membership level for each area of your site you want to move people to. Then after a set period of time you can move people from one level to another automatically using the “Sequential Upgrade” features built into WishList Member. With this method, the member can only access the content within the Membership Level they currently have access to and will gain access to the upcoming content once they are upgraded to the next Membership Level.

Answer: Yes. A registration can set so that the site admin must approve a registration BEFORE they gain access to content. A registration can also be set so that an email is automatically sent to the user requiring them to confirm their registration BEFORE they gain access to protected content. Both of these scenarios are optional.

Answer: Yes. WishList Member includes an API and a set of WordPress-style functions you can use to work with the WishList Member code.

The API lets you connect to and interact with WishList Member using an external (outside of WordPress) script that you write. The available WordPress-style functions let you connect to and interact with WishList Member inside of plugins and themes that you write (that will be installed in the same WordPress install as WishList Member). The documentation for both are available at: https://codex.wishlistproducts.com.

Answer: Yes. Systems like ClickBank and 1ShoppingCart can be used to successfully manage affiliates so it is possible to setup a membership site using WishList Member and have an affiliate program at the same time. In addition, WishList Member also has an integration with iDev Affiliate tracking software. This integration is provided as a free bonus for all customers and it is located in the Resources > Other Resources section of the Customer Center.

Answer: Yes. There is an affiliate program for WishList Products. You can learn more and sign up for the affiliate program using the following link: https://wishlistproducts.com/affiliates.

WishList Member is a WordPress plugin so it can be installed and used on a hosted WordPress powered site. A copy of WordPress can be downloaded from WordPress.org. That plugin can then be installed on a hosted WordPress powered site.

Note: WordPress.com is a different environment. WordPress.com offers packages for sites that do not allow for plugins or themes to be installed so WishList Member cannot be used on these types of sites. WordPress.com also offers a Business Plan Package which does allow for the installation of 3rd party plugins and themes. WishList Member was not specifically developed for this environment so we cannot say the intended functionality will work on a site using the WordPress.com Business Plan Package. WishList Member might function as intended in this environment, but we cannot guarantee it at this time. It is recommended WishList Member be used on a hosted WordPress powered site.

We use WP Engine for our WordPress hosted sites and highly recommend them. We’ve teamed up with them to provide a 20% discount on the first month of new hosting accounts with them. You can click here to get the coupon code for the discount.
