80+ MemberPress Website Examples

MemberPress is the world's #1 membership plugin for WordPress websites. It enables you to:

  1. Create and manage a new membership website or…
  2. Turn your existing WordPress website into a membership site.

Today, tens of thousands of businesses use MemberPress to manage membership websites all over the globe. But what, exactly, do these sites look like?

For this post, we rounded up a list of more than 80 real, live MemberPress website examples for you to check out. We included a short overview for each website. We also included a basic description of how each site is using MemberPress to boost its bottom line.

We're super excited to show you just how versatile the MemberPress plugin is. But before we get to the list, let's go over what we mean when we say membership site.

What is a “Membership Site”?

The concept is pretty simple.

A website that requires users to sign up for access to any “protected content” is considered a membership site. Whether that protected content is available for free or for a fee doesn't matter. It also doesn't matter whether the entire site or just a few parts of the site are protected.

For example, consider an online women's clothing store that has a VIP community. Anyone can shop on the site without an account. But if someone signs up for the VIP community, they get special sale alerts, discounts, and a regular newsletter. Because the store has a VIP community that requires sign up, we'd consider it a membership site.

The fact that a user has to sign up to access some of a website's content is what makes that site a membership site.

Protected content can include all kinds of things:

SubscriptionsVideosPodcasts
Physical productsEbooksAudio content
Digital productsWhite papersCommunities, forums, clubs
Blog postsOnline coursesVirtual conferences
ImagesCoaching sessionsAnything else you can imagine!

Now that you've got a better understanding of what a membership site is, check out some awesome MemberPress website examples (organized by type).
