Memberone - Goldbar (click to read reviews)

Website URL
Price: $99.95 - 299.95 / month
Guarantee: none
Installation: Installs on multipe servers, Central control panel hosted on their servers.
Trial Version: No trial or Demo
Support: Helpdesk
Payment Processors: Paypal, and a Goldbar affiliated merchant account.
Required Software: none - hosted
Description:

Goldbar one is an all in one payment system, autoresponder,  helpdesk, CMS, and membership system. It installs places membership systems on mulitple websites and you control them from one central interface. This allows you to build one working prototype, and then clone the system for many different sites.

They do allow the sequencing of content depending on when a new member signs up. They also have an add on which allows you to send information to a fulfillment company.

This is in their terms of service "Goldbar.net reserves the right to change fees at any time, for any reason at its sole discretion. " - a bit scary...

They also sell a video called "Membership Superstars" which I found to be more of a long sales letter than a how to on membership sites. Useful if you are interested in their software as it explains how it can be used.

WordPress Wishlist (click to read reviews)

Website URL
Price: $97 single site, $297 multi
Guarantee: 30 day money back
Installation: Self, with video tutorials.
Trial Version: no
Support: help desk
Payment Processors: Paypal, 1Shopping Cart, Google.
Required Software: Wordpress, PHP, Mysql
Description:

This is a plugin for Wordpress which makes it into a membership system. The makers have done a very good job at creating a simple to use product for turning a wordpress site into a membership site. It has some advanced features like increasing the level of membership over time. However its not clear if when the person cancels this sequence is stopped.

It seems like a good program, and has some very strong marketing behind it. Initial inspection shows it as a good system for a basic wordpress membership system if you want to use paypal and a couple of other payment systems. However, it doesn'tprotect the content from hotlining or have an affiliate system built in.
