    Scripts for a Subscription website - suggestions?

    Hi everybody!

    A client has come back to us wanting a membership site. He plans on putting a few tools behind a login, then charging $X a month to allow logins. The logins will be generated by the user (so they'd sign up for the account), but the client would let them log in to the secure area once confirmed that they have payment. Ideally, it would be automated (so once payment is paid, then they can login. But if they cancel their subscription, then their account would be withdrawn).

    Does anybody have any experience running a subscription site like this? What scripts do you use for it? Or is there custom build solutions? What pitfalls & things should I be aware of?

    Thanks

    Amember was my first thought too, though if you have the budget I think MemberGate has a lot going for it.

    Thanks guys, I carried out my own research, and it makes me feel better that amember was the first one you guys suggested, as we are probably going down that route. Cheers guys
