How does a client portal work?
A client portal allows clients to see their projects, download files, sign documents, manage tasks and interact with your team.
They are accessible online, and clients can sign up by themselves, you can create their usernames, or you can automate the sign up process to start after their order is paid.
Does WordPress have a client portal?
WordPress doesn’t have a client portal by default. You can use three methods to create client portals in WordPress:
1. Create a network install - give clients access to their own subsite, with content about their projects
2. Using password-protected pages - using a single site, so only visitors with passwords for these pages can see them
3. With membership plugins - creating pages restricted using different membership plans, so each client has access to their own content only
How much does it cost to build a client portal?
You can build a client portal for free using tools like WordPress or Softr. But there are paid tools as well.
In general, the price of your client portal comes down to how much data you have, what kind of features you are looking for and how much time you want to spend building and maintaining it.
