We believe anyone should be able to build and run a membership site. You shouldn't need to hire a developer or have technical skills. So we've designed MemberSpace to be easy and simple for non-technical people to launch and grow a membership business on Squarespace.


2. You don't get locked into a CMS

With most membership systems, you get locked into a content management system (CMS) like Squarespace and it's really hard to change. MemberSpace works with all popular CMS options, so you can easily move to a different one without impacting your members or their billing details.

Our success truly comes from providing great customer support. You can talk with us via live chat or email (under an hour response) and our team is also available for live support hours with you!

We understand that migrating your membership to different software can seem like a daunting task. We want to make it as easy, simple, and painless for you as possible.
