Migrate from Substack
Need to import your members from Substack to Memberful? We provide hands-on support! Since Memberful and Substack both use Stripe, you can keep all of your subscribers' payment information when you migrate over — creating a seamless experience with no interruptions.

Why make the move
With Memberful, you can integrate with best in-class email newsletter providers (like Mailchimp, ConvertKit, Campaign Monitor, or Drip) to send your members-only newsletter. You can also create a more holistic membership offering: Use our WordPress integration to gate content on your site and connect to Discord or Discourse to create a members-only community.
Plus, with Memberful, you have more control over the entire look and feel of the member experience: We’re happy to take a back seat so you can establish a more direct relationship with your audience, from your own website.
