s2Member is a plugin for professional WordPress membership management, integrating seamlessly with user roles & capabilities for WordPress. The free version of the plugin supports four membership levels, however s2Member Pro allows unlimited membership levels. The only other major difference between the two versions is support.
The plugin allows you to restrict posts, pages, tags, and categories. A complex download system is included with the plugin to ensure that unauthorized users cannot download restricted files. Audio and video files can also be streamed privately. S2 Member allows you to incorporate external affiliate systems such as iDevAffiliate and ShareAsale but doesn’t come with its own system.
You can even protect downloadable files, stream audio and/or video, and store files either locally or using s2Member’s integration with Amazon S3/CloudFront.
