Wishlist Member vs. Magic Members

Wishlist Member vs. Magic Members

Wishlist Member vs. Magic Members

The Magic Members and Wishlist Member have established themselves as some of the best WordPress membership plugins on the market. As a result, it is common for webmasters to find themselves considering both options when starting a membership site. Both have notable strengths and few weaknesses which makes choosing between the two a difficult task.

1. Features

The true strength of Wishlist Member is the number of 3rd party applications which are specifically designed to be integrated with the plugin. Unfortunately, this often leaves webmasters scrambling to find the right add-on plugin to make Wishlist Member exactly what they want. On the other hand, Magic Members excels because nearly every feature a membership site owner would want is built into the core of the plugin. This eliminates the potential for compatibility issues. Plus the few plugins most often combined with Magic Members to increase functionality are designed by the same developers to eliminate the threat of compatibility problems. Continue reading

Wishlist Member WordPress Membership Plugin Review

3 Key Areas Wishlist Member Excels

1. 3rd Party Integration
It has become almost an expectation that the best WordPress membership sites have the capability to integrate with popular 3rd party plugins. No one expects a membership plugin to have every feature required to operate a profitable membership site. This is why 3rd party integration is so important. Key integration capabilities include list generation/management, payment gateways/processors, and the ability to be used with a variety of themes and other popular WordPress plugins without breaking.

2. Strong Core Framework
Another reason Wishlist Member is so popular is because of its core design. Unlike many other popular WordPress membership plugins, Wishlist Member places a high emphasis on being a WordPress plugin first. This ensures it remains compatible with new WordPress versions. It also leverages built-in WordPress features whenever possible. This helps it remain a fairly lightweight solution in comparison to the capabilities it offers. This is ideal for WordPress users compared to membership plugins that are highly reliant on their own architecture which can cause conflicts with WordPress and lead to additional coding tweaks to ensure integration.
3. Does Miss Key Features
It seems like most WordPress membership plugins excel at one or two things but are not ideal for supporting a variety of different types of membership sites. While this doesn’t seem important at first glance, most membership site owners plan on launching additional sites in the future. It is much easier to get comfortable with a single plugin that can used across multiple types of sites. It also saves a lot of setup time.

2 Drawbacks to Consider Before Using Wishlist Member

While Wishlist Member is a great solution there are a few drawbacks that keep it from completely dominating the marketplace.

1. A Major Redesign is Nearly Impossible
In its current form Wishlist Member is easy to use and extremely popular but if a major redesign was ever needed there could be problems. Choosing a fully mature WordPress membership plugin like Wishlist Member has numerous benefits but it also means you shouldn’t expect any major changes in the near future. It would be nearly impossible to provide this without a major overhaul of the core code. A related problem with fully mature plugins is small issues are often overlooked or 3rd party solutions are required to overcome them.

2. Customer Support Has Never Been a Strength
Customer support for Wishlist Member is considered solid but unspectacular. Not only do users need to get through the initial request stage but they are reliant on a designated programmer/support specialist to handle the problem. The specialists are very good but it makes the entire process more time consuming than it often needs to be.
Overall Wishlist Member is a great choice for a variety of different situations. It is a strong, mature plugin that relies on WordPress which ensures compatibility with themes and the core framework. At the same time it is important to consider how impactful the drawbacks will be for your specific needs before making a decision.
