Offering high-quality premium content to your paid members is an increasingly common practice in generating a revenue stream from WordPress websites. This is especially true in times of ad blockers. You can achieve this by using a handful of useful tools in the form of WordPress membership plugins. You may thus quite easily create a source of revenue from your WordPress website by offering restricted access to your premium content.

Restrict Content Pro (Free & Premium)

One of the best membership plugins for WordPress in our opinion is Restrict Content Pro. Restrict Content Pro is developed by Pippin Williamson, who is a well-known developer in the WordPress community. The digital ecommerce plugin Easy Digital Downloads as well the affiliate program plugin AffiliateWP also belong to him.

Whilst the free version of Restrict Content is quite limited, the pro version comes with powerful add-ons to not only restrict content on your website to logged-in users but for example to also implement WooCommerce or payment gateways like PayPal.

When it comes to restricting content you can use shortcodes to restrict content only partially but you can also set up restrictions for whole pages or posts. This way you can secure and sell content on your website in a professional way. Speaking of which: you can even restrict content only for a specific time, before Restrict Content Pro sets it to public automatically as well as the other way round.

Other features that make Restrict Content Pro a premium plugin:

1. Easy to set up
2. Many add-ons to cover most requirements
3. Frontend forms for user registration, login and password reset
4. Discount codes
5. Printable HTML invoices
6. Complete Member Management
7. Reporting Dashboard
8. Great Support

So Restrict Content Pro is a powerful premium membership plugin packed with a lot of features without being to complicated or too much.

Paid Memberships Pro (Free & Premium)

The Paid Memberships Pro plugin is a popular solution in providing you the ability to lock certain content from non-paying members. This membership plugin allows you to securely lock a variety of elements including posts, pages and entire categories. It is flexible enough to enable you to create multiple levels of membership too, each with varying access permissions granted to them. This plugin is ideal to create a members only area on your site.

Paid Memberships Pro itself is free and has no restrictive limitations. There are premium addon being made available to their own paid members. A generous collection of free add ons is also available to further extend the functionality of the plugin. Through these extensions you can integrate Paid Memberships Pro with an array of other membership-based services for your WordPress website.
