great plugin, used again and again
By , for WP 3.9.1

I use S2Member for 3 years now to sell digital content.

It simply works great!

I just started a new site and I'm amazed by the functionality of the updated S2Member plugin.

Great work guys, you rock!

S2 member issue
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have used S2 member for over a 1.5 years now

It works great however it slows my website down when i disable the plugin the performance increases i only use s2 member to protect a single page so i might be using a sledge hammer to crack a nut i wish there was some thing out there that would allow a paying member to access a restricted page.

Very good plugin with a good service
By , for WP 3.9.1

s2member is a great plugin that does lots of different features like giving rights for pages for just special users, giving customized notifications and you even can create coupon codes.
The free version is by itself already good, but the PRO is giving you the features to make your changes more personalized.
The support is also just for PRO users what is understandable.
There is only one thing I'm not 100% satisfied and that's their service.
If they would improve that than s2member would be perfect.
At the moment it's only possible to contact with support tickets as a PRO member and you get a really quick response in 24 hours.
I always liked their forum where you can look for solution when you are having a problem. But at the moment they closed the forum and only support tickets are the only way to get help. If it would be public in the forum again it would be perfect. Than less people would need to bother with a private support ticket.

Hopefully the s2member team is turning their forum back on in future. That would change everything back to a perfect state.
But besides that I'm really satisfied with s2member. It's close to be perfect.
At least the forum will hopefully stay online forever and not switched off.

Would be great if the forum would come back, maybe in a different version that's easier to maintain. Hopefully there could be found a solution for the future.

I'm still giving it the full rating in the hope that the plugin stays as perfect as it is at the moment and the service just gets improved back the way it was with a forum.

Thanks for the great plugin

It works.

The helpful explanations in the menus can sometimes actually be confusing, but overall it's a well done plugin.

Both paid and free versions work well
By , for WP 3.8.1

I am using the free S2Member version on two sites and the paid S2Member Pro on one site and have found support for both to be pretty good. This plug-in works great for a membership site; there are a few things I wish they would include (the ability to add a donation to a membership payment; and a publishable membership directory are a couple), but I've researched a lot of membership programs and this one always comes out on top for me.

Useful, well done, adaptable
By , for WP 3.8.1

Easy installation, and very easy to setup.
I checked the free version, and inmediatly I upgrated to Pro. As you view funcionality you discover so many things you can do with all. If you are a developer, you can achieve so many customization in your site; if not, you can easily setup your content, your integration and payments methods.

You can find many documentation, and the forums where they resolve issues are so extensive.
The support is very good when you have the Pro account, if not, they answer but it takes some time.

Great software and support

I had the typical snags while setting up the plugin, but the excellent support from Websharks made it tolerable. Thanks Christian for your help! I plan to use the plugin on other sites that we're making.
