I got a notice the other day about signing up for an email list that I had completely forgotten about – how many times do you do that?
It was from Memberful which is an easy way to sell digital goods, whether it’s software, graphics, fonts, icons, templates, themes, and plugins. Oh my! Anything really.
Memberful is really easy (like point and click) to set up. It also optionally integrates quickly with WordPress via a plugin. The guys over at The Theme Foundry have been using it for over a year to sell their WordPress themes and integrate with their WordPress powered website.
And, if you’re the technical type, they also have an API for integrating Memberful with any third-party CMS or even a custom application.
Right now the only way you’ll get in is sending them a note about your interest. It leverages Stripe, which is a powerful financial processing system that we at WP Daily are pretty psyched about as well.
The “digital goods” plugin market space is growing and there are already many players out there that are offering ecommerce/gateway solutions. Will this be “just another” one to add to the mix or will it become a much bigger business unit for The Theme Foundry?
Only time will tell if it finds a solid place among developers and WordPress-powered site owners. I personally haven’t requested access simply because I know I don’t have time to do any serious testing of the service at this point – I’d love to know if you get in and what your thoughts of it are though!
Heck, even contribute it as a Guest Post here! Why not.
