Site Membership is in Beta! We're super excited for our initial release of Site Memberships! Allow registrations on your site, and create members-only pages. This is a huge update and lets you do so much more with your Strikingly site.
We're releasing Site Memberships to select users now (Pro users & up). Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get early access & add membership to your site.
Memberships work seamlessly with our existing ecommerce function:
Tie Membership to Store Products. You can attach a membership to an existing product in your Simple Store, so that a customer who buys a specific product automatically gets a membership login. This is a super-simple way to sell your digital content.
Create Members-Only Pages. Set specific pages to be members-only, which means your visitor must log in to see it. Use these pages to deliver special content to members. You can even restrict these pages to only customers who bought specific products.
