Thrive Themes Membership Plan - Theme, Opt-ins, Landing Pages, Quizzes and so much more
WishList Member - Membership Protection WP Plugin
LearnDash - LMS WP Plugin

My second choice setup recommendation:
OptimizePress - a combo theme/plugin that could be used in place of Thrive Themes, WishList and LearnDash - though with some limitations.

Stripe - Payment Gateway
Stripe Direct - WP Plugin for simple purchase buttons

Other options:
Paid Memberships Pro - Membership Protection WP Plugin

Thrive Cart - Custom shopping cart

These are some of the more common tools and resources that I use, or consult clients on, or have researched, and recommend - specifically for people who aren't yet setup in any way. They are not ALL needed.  For people who have existing components in place my recommendations may differ based on their needs. To get specific recommendations based on your needs and requirements please consider booking some Coaching or Strategic Planning sessions.
