So far, they have the widest range of functionality, versatility, and 3rd Party Plugin support out of all the other similar gamification plugins we tried.

The best part of this plugin is that it’s free.

At last a serious, well-coded, versatile, fast and easy to integrate achievement plugin for WordPress. Well documented and prompt and efficient support. Itsi-pitsi learning curve but well worth it. Say goodbye to the competition and say hello to GamiPress. Kudos to the team!

Absolutely satisfied

Without any doubt, the BEST plugin out there 🙂

Many Options, fast evolving, best support

Needs some time to understand the many options that are given, but support is amazing and will help you to get you set up quickly. Also documentation is very good and the plugin is updated regularly. Thank you very much for this great plugin!

Good plugin but the WordPress forum support is terrible

The plugin itself works fine, but it is extremely limited without add-ons. It looks suspiciously similar to badgeOS (which went defunct right before GamiPress was launched). The real problem is its terrible support here on They think suggestions are help requests and use terrible grammar in their responses. From the suggestions I have made and the responses to questions I have seen, GamiPress does a downright terrible job of support.

If you are a developer like me and know how to fix problems and add your own features, then GamiPress is perfect for you. If you are not, you are on your own.
