How to enable Memberful SSO for my community on Bettermode

Memberful is one of the OAuth2 SSO methods. Click here to learn more about how OAuth2 SSO works and what other OAuth2 SSO methods Bettermode supports.

Memberful gives creators and entrepreneurs the tools to monetize their sites, SaaS products, or online communities with memberships. Using Bettermode's Single Sign-On (SSO), integrate Tribe communities with Memberful and make a seamless login experience for the users.

With this integration, your users won’t have to sign up or log in with a Bettermode account. Instead, they’ll use Memberful credentials to access Bettermode from your log-in page.

Required credentials for setting-up Memberful SSO in my Bettermode community

  • Client ID:* An alphanumeric string that is publicly exposed and used by the service API to identify the application. This is also used to build authorization URLs that are presented to users.

  • Client Secret:* A secret known only to the application and the authorization server. It protects the resources by only granting tokens to authorized requestors.

  • Memberful Domain:* Domain URL of your SSO provider.

  • Login Button Text:* Text defined here will appear on the login page for the users. You can insert any text. For example: Login with ABC

  • OAuth Redirect URL: The URL a browser redirects to once the process of Authentication is complete.

How to find Memberful credentials

Follow the steps below to find the Memberful Domain, Client ID, and Client Secret on a Memberful website:

Login & register with email
