Transitioning from Memberful to Ghost

I wanted to see if anyone has done this and how were the results? We currently have paying members using Memberful with a connected Stripe account. Is the process reliable for migrating these customers without having to ask them to re-enter their financial data?

Yes, and No. In actual fact, you cannot migrate directly from Memberful to Ghost. Memberful keeps the subscription management side out of Stripe. Ghost picks up its data from Stripe. So there’s a missing link. To get anything useful, you need setup subscriptions in Stripe, from your Memberful list. I did it one by one. Then, take an export from Stripe and import it to Ghost. If you have a lot of subscribers, this would be a pain in the … Smaller numbers, it wasn’t too bad.
