MemberPress has joined the WPBeginner Growth Accelerator

Originally published November 6, 2018

I'm excited to announce today that MemberPress (the company that brings you MemberPress and other great products like Pretty Links and Easy Affiliate) has joined the WPBeginner Growth Accelerator Fund!

This means we're partnering with my good friend Syed Balkhi. Syed is the founder of Awesome Motive and WPBeginner as well as several tremendously popular WordPress plugins and services including:

This is a huge opportunity for our team and for our customers because we'll now be able to leverage all the resources of Awesome Motive to streamline our products and deliver amazing new features to you… faster!

Background Story

I've known Syed for years. I first met him at an OC Wordcamp and have had several opportunities to hang out with him at CaboPress and other conferences over the years.

But even before I met Syed he'd reviewed MemberPress and Pretty Links on WPBeginner and has always been a big supporter.

Because of this relationship, our companies' similar cultures, and the products we offer it made sense for us to become partners as part of the growth accelerator fund.

Syed's companies have built some impressive products and have a phenomenal reach. But even better, they've developed amazing cultures that are built around putting people first. We want to maintain this type of company as we grow and build world-class products along the way – and this partnership will help us to do both.

What will happen to the MemberPress team?

The MemberPress team isn't going anywhere. In fact, this partnership will enable us to hire more great people and grow the MemberPress team! We already have a fantastic team of great people, and we look forward to adding more awesome members in the near future.

What’s Changing on MemberPress?

Right now, nothing is changing. It’s business as usual. In the coming weeks, you'll likely see new enhancements, better ease of use and more great support. I truly can’t wait to share all the powerful features that we'll be bringing your way!

Will Prices Change?

We'll never raise prices for existing users. If you've got an active MemberPress subscription, you'll be forever grand-fathered into your existing plan.

As we add more features in the future, we may experiment with different pricing plans.

What’s Coming Next?

As I mentioned, we’re starting work on several new initiatives, and I know you’re going to love what's coming.

We'll also make tweaks to the website design to better highlight all the features that MemberPress offers.

Once again, I want to thank you for being part of the MemberPress family! We're so excited to now be able to utilize the resources of Awesome Motive to bring you more amazing solutions to help you crush your online business goals!

      Thanks Jack! I really appreciate that.

    That's great news. Please use the additional resources to finally implement Stripe's automatic card updater functionality. It's costing me (and most likely many other folks) real money that this still hasn't happened and thus it would be really great if this could become a priority. After all, Memberpress should be about making me money, not loosing it... ;)

      Thanks Philip! I agree that is an important feature although it should already be in place. Stripe automatically attempts to update credit cards if your customer has a subscription. If you need more of a dunning system in place we recommend ChurnBuster--we use it, have had great success with it and it integrates with MemberPress. If I'm not understanding you properly, feel free to send me the details of the issue you're having to ... and I'll see if we can get it resolved for you, thanks!
