Best of all – I love that the mission of LifterLMS is focused on the small or solo business person. I feel very cared for and about.”

“I’ve tried dozens of LMS plugins. Everything other than LifterLMS suffers from either prohibitive student user-unfriendliness or clunky course-creation processes. LifterLMS gets my top recommendation.”

“LifterLMS has a clean, intuitive interface that was easy to set up. I host my Twitter Class on it, and it was much easier putting it together than working with other eLearning software. I love that I could just add it to my existing website. LifterLMS also has a blog, YouTube channel, podcast, and Facebook group that I follow closely so I can get the most use out of the plugin. I give them an A+ on ease of use and A++ on service.”

“ serves more than 30,000 members, so it’s no small challenge to migrate to a new membership plugin. We spent more than a year carefully evaluating dozens of LMS and membership plugins before we finally discovered LifterLMS.

It was the only plugin that checked all the boxes for our needs. And the LifterLMS team also shares our passion for creating better online learning experiences. In particular, we deeply resonate with their goal of restoring the human touch to online learning—something that is absent from most online courses today.

“We’re so far very happy with LifterLMS. [Because we are coders] we did make some changes that we contributed back, and the LifterLMS team was quick to approve and merge those. Open source as open source should be, we love it!”

“We love to work with LifterLMS. It is easy to use for the course creator and the end user. LifterLMS made creating courses online a pleasure.”

“I have been thinking about offering classes online for years. I found LifterLMS and after creating a simple course outline and filling in the items in the LifterLMS course builder, I had a working course. Just like that!

I was experimenting with a weekly live webinar and impulsively announced that I was creating a course. In days I had my 15 test subjects. I had so much interest I offered a pre-registration at a reduced price. I officially had a 5-figure launch!

Thank you LifterLMS for making it simple and familiar. If you can create a WordPress post, you can create an online course.”

What all LMS softwares should aspire to be!

July 2, 2018

As a former School Teacher, professional User Experience Designer, and current online course creator – I can honestly attribute much of our success to LifterLMS and it’s consideration for multiple learning modalities, UI/UX out of the box, and natural student Engagement opportunities.

I only wish we started with it right from the start, instead of 5 months in on a massive redesign for the better! It’s exceeded all my expectations, increased student engagement, lowered our refund rate, and is a breeze for our team to use.

In less than 10 months we’ve gone from $0 to $300K in revenue with LifterLMS playing a huge part in that!! I’m looking forward to everything that comes next from the creators of LifterLMS!!

Top 10 Reasons People Like You Chose LifterLMS

I can't believe how much LifterLMS listens to what I have to say when I give feedback or request features. They also often check in to get my opinion on things. They just must care ... a lot.

I can't believe how fast LifterLMS evolves based on the needs of the modern course creator and membership site builder. This is so refreshing compared to the clunky slow moving alternatives out there.

I'm so happy I switched from another LMS because LifterLMS gives me so much more freedom, value for my money, control, platform ownership, and superior features.

The support LifterLMS provides is like nothing I've ever seen before with software tools. The lengths the team goes to help support me and the live Office Hours Mastermind is so refreshing in a world of the average customer support experience.

The community around LifterLMS is clearly helpful, sensitive, and of above average intelligence. I finally found a education entrepreneur community that gets me.

With LifterLMS as an all-in-one solution I can finally stop stringing together all these different products made by different companies that don't always work well together. No separate third party membership, ecommerce, or gamification plugins are required!

It's obvious this software is made by course creators and membership site builders. It's like LifterLMS knows what I need next before I do.

I chose LifterLMS for the flexibility and scalability. I can easily validate my course or membership idea through pre-selling. Post launch on can scale up with more courses, memberships, coaching packages, and private community opportunities. 

It's like LifterLMS cares about my students' results and completion rates as much or even more than I do.

LifterLMS just works. I dropped in my course content and had my first course up for sale very quickly.

Easy to Use Awesome Course Plugin

April 2, 2017

A friend told me about LifterLMS as we were both using Teachable. Teachable is super easy to use if you don’t know much about coding, etc. But, waiting for my money for what sometimes felt like forever just wasn’t cutting it for me. I tested LifterLMS and spoke back and forth with support to get some questions answered. I was hooked. The courses are easy to set up and it works well with BeaverBuilder on WordPress. I purchased the ConvertKit extension and am super pleased with how everything integrates nicely. The team has been so helpful by answering questions quickly in their Facebook Group and have listened to user needs. They did a huge improvement recently and I loved all of the updates. I’ve had people ask me many times what I use and I am a proud affiliate now. It’s definitely a better alternative to course development programs that make you wait nearly 45 days to get paid for what you’re teaching. And your users never have to leave your site to take a course. You keep control.


Amazing Functionality for Academic Courses

February 3, 2019

Hands-down the best LMS for higher education I’ve used. We were using Moodle, and were looking to upgrade to something more modern for several years but nothing offered the same level of functionality. LifterLMS provides a student interface that works directly from our website (thus ensuring regular student interaction with the site itself and our social media), and provides easy access to course materials, timetables, assessments and assessment results. Together with Google for education, they make the perfect online experience for teachers and students alike. Well done! Plus, the technical support is very effective and efficient.


Excellent LMS

December 15, 2018

LifterLMS and its suite of premium add-ons have been invaluable to me in building my LMS website, and their staff have been unfailingly helpful and very capable in answering my questions and helping me to resolve any issues. It’s an excellent choice for anyone who wants to build online learning content, and is very easy to use.


Does it So Well

Got to be the best LMS out there..

June 1, 2017

have got to say this has to be one of the best learning management systems out there..I have tried a few over the last 12 months looking for a way of replacing my external LMS.
This fits the bill 100% and with every update it get better and easier to use with more functions. The LifterLMS support team is fantastic if you ever get stuck with anything…


Has been great!

December 29, 2018

With over 2,000 students it still holds up great. Glad LifterLMS has a great team that helps with any issues you may have. They constantly update the platform and have great tutorials. Really happy with them overall.


Great Support & Elegant, Easy Interface

Great Product!

March 2, 2019

I set out to create a educational website and initially got quotes of $15-20k. I used LifterLMS and I’ve created a professional look/feel for under $1k. I love LifterLMS!


One Year and Big Impact

November 15, 2018

Using Lifter for over one year and I can say that all what they provided for all teaching communities is enormous. Hope they grow bigger and bigger to provide more features! Somehow this plugin changed my life because I made my dream come true and I can provide high quality content what is used by hundreds of students in my country.
