Best way to sync user accounts between Webflow and WordPress?

What is the best way to sync user accounts between Webflow and WordPress? Is it possible?

https://www.example.com <— Webflow site (membership + e-commerce enabled)
https://learn.example.com <— WordPress site

Key points:

  1. Users can register in either Webflow or WordPress
  2. Sync almost immediately
    • User account
    • Username / ID
    • Password
    • First Name, Second Name, etc
  3. Sync when changes happen

No. Webflow’s User Accounts are pretty much a “closed box” in that it has specific rules. Two in particular-

  • all user accounts are defined by an email address which cannot be changed, even by the user
  • only the user themselves can set or reset the password

This makes any kind of complete sync impossible.

You might look into Memberstack instead, it has much more maturely-developed system around membership data access. You might also consider Wized, especially if your WP-based system has the ability to integrate.

Then you’d only have one user database, no syncing required.
