Website Membership Service?

Hey everyone,

Here's a question from left field.

Do any of you know a good website membership billing/management solution?

I am wanting to start a site similar to Treehouse but for book reviews and I am needing a solution for membership management that is tied to billing so that if the monthly payment fails then the membership is suspended.

Does that make sense?

Thanks guys!

In the past, I've even used ClickBank to manage recurring billing for membership sites as well as a WordPress plug in here or there, but I don't know if that's what you're looking for.

Best wishes,

Woocommerce is an awesome open source e-commerce solution and they have recently added a plugin to manage memberships / subscriptions.

Not familiar with Woocommerce check out the Treehouse workshop on Woocommerce and Wordpress.
