Membership plugins are complex but I have been using for 6 months, easy enough to implement and powerful, i wish Paypal pro was included in the Free version but I can't fault whats provided, it just works thanks guys.
Seems to be a lot of score settling here recently play fair people wordpress and the plugins are free, if you have a support issue don't try to trash a developers reputation deal with it professionally via support, just note you had a problem because of X or preferred something different because of Y,but only if it's helpful to the community!
I think it's very fit for developers
The free version seems alright but can't quite do what I desire, but I was told that the Pro version could. As much as s2Members talks about granting the ability to set up PayPal option, you'd think that there would be a PayPal option when seeking to go Pro, but there is none, only Credit Card and BitCoin? Is there a reason for this?
I have deleted my comment because I figured out what's wrong.
Got everything up and running fine.
So far I have nothing but good things to say about s2 member pro. Ive been using it for 4 months, It took a bit to get used to as it was my first time using a membership plugin, but they make it easy with their interface and once you go through all the options and set everything up, it works like a charm. It notifies me of everything thats happening on the back end (new users, cancellations, failed payments, etc etc) and it basically does everything for you. Also I wanted to say the support has been fantastic, thank you to Raam Dev for the INCREDIBLE support, that guy is amazing, thank you so much!!
I love the fact we can mess with php and else !! Thanks to be compréhensive ;)
I've been using s2member since about 2012 and in that time have created a fair few membership websites or in case simply used the amazing functionality for course booking / payments on non membership websites. The technology is second to none with incredible support. Jason Caldwell and his team do a great job and no wonder they have such a strong community within the membership plugin field. I would highly recommend this plugin to anyone along with ZenCache. 5 stars from me :)
This plugin is great and does exactly everything you will need to have a membership site. The staff is very helpful as well. I highly recommend it!
We moved over to S2 from PMPro, as we specifically needed some of the more advanced features like custom capabilities.
In my initial research, I was a little hesitant, concerned about reviews of 'too difficult to implement' and a 'lack of support' forum.
We've been here a couple months now, and all things considered, it's been a great experience. The Knowledge base is useful, and my concerns about lack of support have disappeared, as I've had a half dozen questions responded to and resolved in a timely manner.
Yes, there were a lot of options and choices related to setup, but not so many that I couldn't figure it out with the videos and kb and some email support. Ultimately, I think it's all those options and settings that makes for a really powerful and flexible plugin.
I originally wished that they took a more active role in helping with customization, but ultimately I get that they focus on support of the base stuff, and I got a great customization done for a fair price over on oDesk.
All in all, a great move for us.
Note: FWIW, although many of the features are in both Free/Pro, I should mention we decided to use the Pro version, which for us was worth every penny.
