Note: This module is universal. Functions in this module can run on both the backend and frontend, unless specified otherwise.

The Members API allows you to create and manage a site's members.

With the Members API, you can:

  • Create, update, and delete site members.
  • Retrieve member's information from your site.
  • Add the currently logged in member to your site's community, or remove the member from your site's community.
  • Clear a member's contact information such as their addresses, phone numbers, and emails.

To use the Members API, import { members } from the wix-members.v2 module.
