Use Paywallz for member management at no cost.
Paywallz helps website owners require visitors to sign up or register to gain access to your entire site, or just certain pages. But we also make it easy for a visitor to access the protected content.
Paywallz is an integrated service to your website, so, if you choose to switch your host or CMS, (eg. wordpress to squarespace) you automatically bring all your members with you.
- Works on any website or CMS—including Virb, Squarespace, WordPress (plug-in) and others
- No major website modifications required
- We manage users, subscriptions, renewals, password resets—all of it
Use Paywallz for content protection at no cost.
Choose the pages you wish to protect, then set the subscription price (if any) to access them.
You monetize your content by choosing the pages on your site to protect. In just a couple minutes your visitors can purchase subscriptions to your protected content.
Use Paywallz to send and share links at no cost.
One way that Paywallz will help you to extend your reach and grow your subscriber base is by the use of sharing. Share Links allow subscribers to post links to content for others – via email or automatic posting to Facebook and Twitter. Your subscriber base will grow exponentially as your own subscribers extend your website's presence across social media and around the world.
If someone uses the shared link (not a share pass) which leads to a normally protected page, they will need a supporting Paywallz account and subscription to access. If you'd like shared links to provide instant access to the page, without required registration, take a look at the next section: Share Pass.
Use Paywallz to share temporary access to normally protected pages at no cost.
When enabled by the Publisher, this feature allows users of a share link to access the page (link) for a set duration without requiring registering with Paywallz.
By sharing your protected content to guests, they can then get a taste for what you're offering and decide to subscribe to your plan afterwards. Again, they only get "guest" access for the set duration. Once the Share Pass has expired, they have to sign up as a subscriber in order to continue. And you can encourage your subscribers to share links to your content and get others subscribed by enabling payout of commissions on your subscription plans. This way, your subscribers are paid for their quality referrals and your subscriber base will grow exponentially.

Partner (Affiliate) program
The Paywallz partner program fee is +2.9% per transaction.
Partners (affiliates) can earn up to 50% of a subscription. The Publisher (site owner) sets the commission percentage.
Leveraging other people's networks is the best way to increase your visibility. Partnering with advertising and marketing experts through Paywallz allows them to earn a commission from the subscription they referred.
Your Partners can link to your website using their unique Partner Referral Link, any web user that uses the link will be associated with the Partner. If that web user becomes a subscriber within 30 days, the Partner gets a commission – set by the Publisher ahead of time.
In addition to the features above, Paywallz offers several other benefits.
Low Profile Integration. After the visitor signs up for one of your subscriptions, the interface that allows them to sign in and out is a tiny widget we call the Hud. The Hud consumes almost no screen space. It is branded with the Paywallz logo so that visitors will notice that we, a well-known and trustworthy service, are caring for member management in your behalf.
Seamless User Experience. When your visitors are prompted to subscribe for the first time, the curtain that they see appears to be just another part of your website. They're not taken to an entirely new webpage and confused, or worse, reticent about providing payment information to a third party. Your own logo and explanations are provided so that everything is seamless for the visitor.
High Availability. High Performance. Paywallz is built in the cloud and architected so that it is highly stable and reliable. When you are dealing with revenue-generating subscriptions you want to know that the financial piece of things is 100% solid. Our cloud-based platform and integration with Stripe means that you are getting a solution that scales to any number of subscribers and never goes down.
