Membership & Content Restriction – Paid Member Subscriptions


Paid Member Subscriptions is a robust WordPress membership plugin that’s a joy to setup and use.

It offers a complete membership solution, allowing you to accept member payments, manage members, create subscription plans and restrict access to premium content.

You can also use it to setup an Elementor membership site fast and easy.

To start simply create a new page and give it an intuitive name(e.g. Member Registration) and add the following shortcode: [pms-register].
Publish the page and you are done!

Shortcodes for Member Registration, Login, Content Restriction and managing Membership Plans

You can use one of the following shortcodes:

  • [pms-register] – adds a front-end user registration form where users can purchase a membership level
  • [pms-login] – create a front-end member login form
  • [pms-restrict subscription_plans=”9,10″] Special content for members subscribed to the subscription plans that have the ID 9 and 10! [/pms-restrict] – to restrict content based on subscription plans or logged in status
  • [pms-account] – setup a WordPress members area where members can easily edit their account information and manage their subscription plan(s)
  • [pms-payment-history] – adds a front-end table with the member’s payment history
  • [pms-recover-password] – adds a recover password password form, that enables users to reset their password if needed

Membership Modules:

Content Restriction

Paid Member Subscriptions is a very interesting plugin with a lot of functions, even in the free version - only ARMemeber Lite (WP repository) offers such possibilities, which has an advantage in 2 categories: a) ARMemeber Lite has nicer forms and you can edit all forms (fields, colors). Sure, you can add a second free Profile Builder plugin, but it duplicates the pages and functions and the fields in Profile Builder are uglier - narrow in height, and when you turn off plugins' CSS, each form looks like a puzzle. In other plugins, CSS just changes the look, but doesn't demolish the entire page. b) Memory usage: 634.7 KiB. Page speed impact: 0.146 seconds. This can be improved. Also, sometimes the plugin generates errors: [11-Nov-2021 08:34:41 UTC] WordPress database error. c) There is no space before the currency name. This is a linguistic error in many European languages. There should be an option like in WooCommerce, where you can choose an entry with a space: 63,463.00 zł. Here, only this entry may look like this: 63,463.00zł.

This is the best Membership Plugin for me by far. Pretty straight forward to use, even if your a beginner. It's user friendly and not to difficult to work out. I've tried many other plugins of this kind, which have either been too confusing or too over priced. It also has some of the best features that can be used for free, that other plugins will just have as a paid addons. Like the ones you really need for it to be functional. Thanks very much Cozmoslabs
25 Ottobre 2021
All the interactions I've had with the Cozmoslabs team have been incredibly positive and they are always quick to respond to any queries. We no longer use the plug-in as our organisation decided to go for donations rather than a subscription service, but during the six months that I used it, I was very impressed. The plug-in has an easy-to-use interface and I found the whole process of setting up the subscription plans and payment routes really easy.
25 Ottobre 2021
I've not had many subscribers yet so I don't feel like I can comment on heavier or more long term use, but this plugin has done everything it promised to do, with pretty much no hassle. I think that's worth 5 stars!
