Features – WishList Member
As mentioned, following are some of the very important and must-know features of the plugin. All the features can be looked at in detail on the plugin’s homepage.
Unlimited Membership Levels (Free & Premium)
The plugin allows the users to create unlimited number of membership. The memberships can be either paid (premium) or free. The users can easily set different prices for different membership levels. For example, a user might want to create 3 plans namely Bronze, Silver and Gold. That user might want to keep the Bronze plan for free, and charge $20/Mo and $35/Mo for the other two respectively – it can surely be done with the use of Wishlist Member plugin for WordPress.
Complete Content Protection
Every membership site has a reason behind its existence. The main reason is the content , or digital products such as Themes, eBooks etc. that hold so much value that it needs to be paid for. This plugin helps in the complete protection of ANY content on a site. Be it the post, part of the post, page, part of a page, categories, comment(s) etc.
The protection is decided by the user. For example, the user might want to show ‘Page A) and everything on it (the files etc.) to members who have purchased the Silver plan and more. The plugin then protects the content from any other viewer apart from the authorized.
Easy Payments (with auto-renewals and expirations)
The plugin comfortably integrates with the best and the most used payment gateways such as Paypal, Clickbank, UltraCart, 1ShoppingCart etc. Therefore, the members get a wide range of payment options. Apart from just collecting the payments for the first time, the plugin takes care of getting renewal payments at the specified time i.e. daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.
This yet brings down the effort of remembering everything to zero.
Not only does the plugin handle the renewals easily, but also handles the expirations of the membership accounts. For example, if the payment hasn’t been received for ‘account 1′, the membership can directly be cancelled, or be cancelled after the specified time during which the member is notified of the payment issues. Everything automatic.
To take care of the members, notify them about the updates etc. or just to connect with them – there has to be a platform.

And not only these, but many more.
