Give free access
Since your Plan price must be $1 minimum, check out this doc for ways to give your members, friends, or staff, free access to your Plan(s).
In this help doc:
- Give free access to a Plan indefinitely.
- Give free access to a Plan for a limited time.
- Offer a free trial.
- Enable free registration.
- Comp access to all Plans and Downloads.
Give free access to a Plan indefinitely
To give a member free access to a specific Plan indefinitely, navigate to Discounts → Coupons in your Memberful dashboard and create a new, recurring coupon with a 100% discount. The coupon can be applied at checkout.
Give free access to a Plan for a limited time
From the member’s profile, scroll down to the Subscriptions section, click Add a new subscription.
Select the Plan from the dropdown list, uncheck the box Charge credit card for this plan when subscription starts (if the member has a credit card on file), and then click Start the subscription.
If the member doesn’t add a method of payment before the next renewal date, their subscription will expire.
Offer a free trial
To offer your members a free trial of your Plan, enable the Free trial setting when you create a Plan. Keep in mind that we don't support free trials on Plans that renew on a certain date.
If you enable a free trial, this will only apply to new members subscribing to that plan. This won't impact existing members already subscribed.
If you decide to disable this setting later on, it also won't impact existing members already on a free trial.
Enable free registration
Our Pro and Premium plan unlock our free registration feature which allows your members to sign up at no charge and without a paid subscription. You can then leverage this segment of free members in our native integrations like Mailchimp, Discord, and WordPress.
Navigate to the Plans tab in your Memberful dashboard and click Free registration.
Add the free registration link to a button on your website so members can sign up for free.
You can create custom fields for your users to fill out right after creating their free account.
To view all registered users who don't have an active subscription, navigate to the Members tab and choose the filter Free signup (never subscribed).
Comp access to all Plans and Downloads
If you'd like to comp access to all Plans and Downloads (perfect for friends or colleagues), navigate to the Members tab in your Memberful dashboard. Select the member, edit their profile, and check the box: Yes, automatically give access to all downloads and plans.
To view a list of members with an All Access Pass, navigate to the Members tab and choose the filter All Access Pass members.
