Conclusion

When selecting a membership platform for your Framer site, consider the specific needs of your project:

  • FramerAuth: Best for ease of use and seamless integration with Framer. Ideal for most creators due to its simplicity and extensive support. Cheapest option excluding Lemon Squeezy fees.

  • Thenty: Offers flexible payment options but relies on Stripe, which may not be ideal in all regions. Easy setup, cheapest option if you include the payment processor fees. However, once you add up the costs of the other services Lemon Squeezy provides, it's no longer the cheapest. Supports SSO and Zapier integrations.

  • Outseta: Best for those needing advanced features like CRM, Bookmarking and extensive reporting, but more complex to set up.

  • MemberSpace: Outdated, expensive and the hardest to integrate with Framer. Wouldn't recommend this to Framer users.
