Manage your account in test mode

Memberful starts in test mode. From the Activate account tab, you can change Memberful plans for free while you're testing things out, modify your billing details if you’re subscribed to Pro or Premium, and connect with Stripe when you’re ready to go live.

Choose a Memberful plan

Memberful offers 3 plans: Starter, Pro, and Premium. All Memberful plans are free forever while you're in test mode. Learn more about Memberful plans and pricing.

To change Memberful plans while in test mode, navigate to Account → Activate account, and select a plan.

Add a payment method

If you’re subscribing to Memberful’s Pro or Premium plan, you’ll be prompted to add a payment method so we can charge you the monthly fee when you go live. Until then, you can test our platform at no charge and for as long as you like.

When you’re in test mode, you can add or update your payment method via Account → Activate account→ payment method.

Connect to Stripe and go live

When you’re ready to accept real payments on your site, you can connect to your Stripe account by navigating to Account → Activate account, and clicking Connect with Stripe.

Connect to Stripe

Once live, you CANNOT switch back to test mode.

We will:

If you don't have a Stripe account, you can sign up and connect directly from Memberful. Stripe’s sign up form is short and simple, and should take less than five minutes. Learn more about payment processing with Stripe.

Once you're connected to Stripe, you’ll can start accepting live payments. 🚀
