I've been using SlackPass (now LaunchPass) for awhile for various groups. While it's good and provides a very nice UI for adding folks into Slack groups it needs to allow you to approve/decline new member joins IMHO

Pros:

Easy to setup. Free to use for non-paid slack access

Cons:

No way to approve members before they are added

I would really like to add captcha to prevent spam signups. I could add a cost to my account, but at $30/month, I would have to generate a lot of signups to make it worth it.

Pros:

Extremely easy to use and very useful for automating the signup process.

Cons:

Expensive, and no way to add features such as captcha.

I've been a paid user for years and it's been an incredible way to not only store everything needed to run my company and my client's companies.. BUT to also act as my 'dead man's keys' in case something happened to me as company founder.

Pros:

You're able to easily share, sort and store passwords in a safe secure manner.

Cons:

Hmm, If I thought for 5 mins and didn't think of any, that answers that.

I'm loving the experience so far. I need to build out a better marketing plan to promote our work space, but for the cost, LaunchPass is totally worth it.

Pros:

Intuitive user interface and awesome customer support.

Cons:

Vetting new members isn't a feature yet, but I'm sure they have it on the product roadmap.

LaunchPass is the easiest way to launch a membership business model and test out the market. It can literally have your subscription service up and running in under 5 minutes. I just wish the pricing model didn't have a $30 per month cost associated with it. Would be nice if they just took a larger cut of the revenue enabling you to test and scale. All in all I would still highly recommend it for anyone launching a membership site.

Pros:

Easy to get a membership community off the ground

Cons:

Price

I've never given Seth a single dollar, but he has cheerfully answered a lot of questions for me and encouraged me to use the free version. The product is great, and he's generated a lot of good will with me. Will be using soon!

Pros:

Easy to set up, great customer support.

Cons:

Price is a little heavy.

I have been very impressed with LaunchPass and the simplicity with which users can set up a Slack-based membership community, whether free or paid. It really streamlines and simplifies the workflow of adding new members, and reduces the administrative burden of operating an online community, particularly one that members pay to join and remain a member of.

Compared to FB groups, Slack groups are a much richer way to build tight-knit online communities -- a fact that seems generally not that well known amongst those who build online communities for their businesses.

LaunchPass is my secret weapon for deploying landing pages and payment walls for online communities in minutes, instead of hours, and I love sharing it with my clients!

Last but as important for me as anything else, the support team is actually supportive (what a concept!) and super responsive and helpful. I feel like I have a real mission control tower behind me in launching the rocket that is my entrepreneurial community of tribe leaders, ruckus makers and world changers. Thank you, LaunchPass team, for the fantastic tool you have brought to the world!

Pros:

Can launch a Slack-based membership community in > 5 mins. Great pricing model vs. manually taking membership payments via other services.

Cons:

Not yet able to set up recurring payments for custom time intervals (e.g. - that renew biennially, or after a custom # of months).

Seth (the founder) is awesome too who understands the user base, so there is a great future for this product.

Pros:

Very easy to set up and well thought out UX

Cons:

Nothing I can think of.

I use Launchpass with a non-profit organization that is member-based and driven and we use it to automate the process of getting our members to join our Slack workspace. Compared to the old days of manually inviting people, Launchpass has replaced a couple different tools we used for people to self-invite and this has been the absolute best and easiest to use.

Pros:

Easy way to share Slack access without manually inviting

Cons:

No way to approve users

@sethlesky absolutely terrible customer service. I was part of a discord group that exit scammed on all of its members and launch pass support refuses to give a refund due to their policy that says the group owner must authorize the refund. The owner is obviously not going to authorize a refund if he’s a scammer
Terrible customer service. Impossible to cancel memberships.

@jcorrao Hi! We are really sorry that you had trouble canceling members. We haven't heard this complaint before. Please contact support@launchpass.com about your experience and we will definitely look into simplifying the process. Currently every email we send includes a link to cancel at bottom, but we might be able to make it even clearer.

I run an investing & education group that focuses on market fundamentals, one-on-one, trading & group mentorship, so needless to say, I don’t have much time to spare. Launchpass has significantly helped me manage my Discord group for all that I do. Instead of having to mess around with spreadsheets, it’s all completely automated & my members can update/cancel their subscription right in the server. This allows me more time to dedicate to my members, make their training videos, do live trading sessions & more. It’s SUPER easy to market my group as well with stripe integration. Making coupons on the fly is fast, and I can have a promo up on social media in minutes. I want to give a tip of the hat to the amazing support they have as well. Anytime I’ve had a question they’ve been prompt, thorough & knowledgeable which shows the dedication of the team to know their product inside and out. I’ve been using them for almost a year & don’t see myself leaving. They keep adding more functionality too. If someone not very tech savvy like myself can do all this, you can too. Great job LaunchPass, keep up the great work!

I had recently taken over a small business that included Launchpass and Stripe integration, so I had to quickly learn the tools in order to keep the business running. In current times, I don’t expect much in terms of customer service or experience. I was pleasantly surprised when it came to the support that I received from the Launchpass team. They provided personalized support, wanted to know about my business, and went the extra mile to ensure that I was completely satisfied with every aspect of their service. If that wasn’t enough, they followed up with me on numerous occasions to ensure everything was running smoothly. Other than learning how to use it, the system has been flawless – members signup and cancel without issue, payments are processed, and my revenue is delivered to my bank account on schedule every time. It would probably cost me thousands of dollars to design and set this up myself, so based on my experience, I highly recommend the Launchpass service and their team to anyone looking to set up and run a membership based business in Discord. Thank you again!
