Membership Multiplicity

How would you like to allow members of your WordPress membership site to create as many paid subscriptions to your offerings as they want? That would be pretty awesome, right?

Well, you can do this right out of the box with MemberPress.

MemberPress stands apart from other WordPress membership plugins for many reasons … but one of the most powerful is simply that you can allow your members to create as many subscriptions as they want.

Most other membership plugins are tied WordPress roles. This means that each user can only have one subscription at a time because each user in WordPress can only have one role at a time.

But MemberPress is different … it tracks subscriptions independently from WordPress roles which enables your users to subscribe to an unlimited number of subscriptions simultaneously and to set up numerous upgrade paths.

MemberPress does integrate with WordPress capabilities–which will allow you or a developer to customize page templates, themes and other plugins based on your members' active subscriptions.

The brilliant part of this setup is that unlike other plugins, MemberPress has been architected from the ground up to allow your members to create, maintain and modify unlimited subscriptions. And even better, not only is MemberPress' admin interface specifically tuned for multiple subscriptions but MemberPress' self-service member account page will also allow your members to create, update, upgrade, or cancel any number of subscriptions … simultaneously.

This feature will give you the flexibility to:

  1. Create “bolt on” subscriptions to give your members premium access to different types of premium content
  2. Create multiple, completely different product lines … each with their own upgrade paths
  3. Allow your members to subscribe to the same membership product multiple times (this is especially good if you're selling membership licenses, etc)
  4. Create a catalog of individual membership products which can be subscribed to multiple times

Of course, it's easy to keep it simple as well … with one upgrade path. But the usefulness and power of being able to allow members to create a multiplicity of subscriptions should be fairly obvious … even if you don't need this capability right now. The truth is that this feature will most likely become critical as your WordPress membership site grows and you want to explore new ways to enhance your WordPress membership site.
