Patreon WordPress is now compatible with Paid Memberships Pro

With version 1.5.0, Patreon WordPress is now compatible with Paid Memberships Pro. If you had PMP pro before, you can just install Patreon WordPress and have your patrons easily unlock content gated with PMP without needing to do anything else. It will just work out of the box.

It also works the other way - PW gated content can be unlocked by a qualifying member from matching PMP tier assigned to any post/content.

You can also gate posts/content with both plugins at the same time, and any user from any qualifying Patreon pledge or PMP tier can unlock the content.

Current compatibility logic works over monthly PMP memberships and monthly Patreon membrships. Some details are below:

  • Paid Memberships Pro gated content can be unlocked via Patreon if user has qualifying pledge level that matches PMP gated content
  • Patreon gated content can be unlocked by a matching PMP membership level
  • Content gated by both PW and PMP can be unlocked by qualifying pledge from Patreon that matches the Patreon pledge
  • Content gated by both PW and PMP can be unlocked by qualifying tier membership from PMP that matches the PMP tier

In future compatibility over PMP memberships based on one-time payment and Patreon lifetime total pledge may be added.

You can just upgrade to 1.5.0 from your WP admin, or download it below at its WP org repository page.

@codebard Hey all, just wanted a quick clarification on the wording above. Am I to understand that having PMP and connecting it to the Pro plugin will allow the same content to be unlocked via a Patreon membership or a PMP membership?

Say I have a page on my Wordpress site that I want to lock for $1 Patreons and I also (for whatever reason) want to assign that same page to be viewed by a subscriber of my site who is NOT a Patreon, I can do that?

Impressive if true!

To clarify: You dont have to connect anything in the two plugins - it will just work out of the box.

Other than that - yeah, indeed you can have your users unlock content with either of the plugins.

Patreon locked content can be unlocked by PMP member which qualifies for a matching subscription $ level.

PMP content can be unlocked by Patreon patron that has a pledge that matches the PMP tier level.

More potential compatibility is possible - like matching one time payments of PMP to Patreon’s total historical pledge. But for later releases likely…

Impressive if true!

Enjoy!

WOW! Thanks for the answer and I will be checking into it for sure!

Best!
