For each subscription plan, you can specify price (how much users have to pay to sign up), subscription length (how long the membership is active if users sign up for this plan), thumbnail, description.... of that plan.
2. Membership sign-up from front-end: When users visit your site, they will see list of publish subscription plans, choose a plan they want, sign up and process payment (via online payment gateways such as Paypal, Authorize.net, Eway, Offline Payment...). After that, they will have an active membership of that subscription plan and can access to restricted resources which you setup for each subscription plan.

I wish you tried to contact me for support before writing this review because your review is completely wrong:
1. The extension has documentation located at http://documentation.joomdonation.com/membership-pro.html. Further more, you can post your questions on forum, submit support tickets or even talk to me directly on Skype if you need support.
2. The extension does allows you to create free membership (you can see the demo for a free subscription plan at http://membershippro.joomservices.com/plan-types/free-subscription). It supports both free and paid membership, both onetime and recurring subscription.
3. The extension does allows you to prevent accessing to restricted resources (articles, any pages (urls) on your site, any resources which can be handled by Joomla core ACL). And when you try to access to an un-authorized resouce:
- The system will display a customized message saying that you are not authorized to access to that restricted resource.
- You will be redirected to the corresponding subscription plan (or plans list) so that you can purchase the plan in order to access to that resource.
If you receive my response in this review, please contact me via Skype (my skype nickname is tuanpnves) or submit a support ticket so that I can help you to setup it and make it works properly.
Not only was this an easy to implement component; Tuan and his support team is unparalleled. He quickly would respond to any issues I ran into and corrected thing for me without any hassles!
Joomla claims to have insane support (which they do), and so does Tuan and his support team.
I would strongly recommend this product or any other product he has developed just from the standpoint of excellence in service. If there was a 6 star rating system in place, they would receive a 7 from me.
On top of that we had some custom requests to the develop which they gladly communication through skype for live support and we were able to create some customized perks within minutes.
Easy To Install
No learning Curve like a lot of others
Easy Payment integration
Fast Live Support
So far nothing with their component.
I am really hoping for the Mailchimp integration, which will make automatic responses to my members more easy.
- Painless installation
- Easy to setup
- Various membership plan options
- Hassle free workflow. Registration and Subsription to any plan could be done on one page
- It integrates well with Community Builder
- Integrated translator
- Active forum
- GREAT and fast user support
- Code is clean and intelligently written, so skilled coders can modify it with easily, if needed.
- it supports Joomla overriding system
- no working demo, hopefully they will add it soon ;)
If only other components would have such good support in term of speed and willingness to help beyond usual support scope. New version is coming soon, with even more features, so my purchase was justified beyond my initial hope for this component. Keep on a good work, and add working demo asap! I'm sure that this would bring more sales to you.
Membership Pro, (and other extensions from the same developer), are just fantastic.
Apart from the simple fact that they work, and work well, there is the absolutley superb support offered by these folk... unparalleled.... simply fantastic. Tuan goes way over the limit in supporting his customers. I would purchase an extension based on this fantastic support alone.
The support team helped me through each step, and responded quickly to each request. The extension itself is very full featured and does everything I wanted for our subscription based on-line video training site. I would highly recommend it.
