I have plans on implementing membership into my website. I have already searched here but couldn`t find the information I was looking for. I know there are many paid membership management software companies, but I was hoping if there were any free, open-source alternatives.
The membership features I would like to implement, are those found in any commercial website such as Amazon or Ebay, plus other things unique to my website.
How customizable are paid membership management software? Some of the companies I have looked at, seemed to provide management systems that operate like forums. Although my website will have forums, it will also be a commercial site and will need to be able to track transactions and individual sales etc.
Any feedback on your experience with membership management software, paid or free appreciated.
