Step 1

(You've already registered & verified in step1) Sign into your Paywallz Dashboard and click "Sites" in the top left, then click "Add site" on the right.

Step 2

 

You'll need to fill in the following site details:

Organization (your business name or personal name)

Site Name (your website title or name)

Domain (your website domain eg. pinheadsmusic.com)

Description (this describes the Paywallz protected portion of your website)

Credit Card descriptor (what you want to show up on your subscribing customers credit card statement)

HUD (this is the widget which lets subscribers sign in/out, share a page, or go to their Paywallz account)

Image (the logo/image you want to show when a visitor see's the Paywallz curtain protecting your monetized content)

See the image below this to see a working example.

Step 3

Here is where you'll enter the path (URL) of the content you wish to protect. If your website visitor goes to, for example, www.pinheadsmusic.com/88mph/ and you want whatever is on that page to be protected by Paywallz, you'd enter 88mph and click Add.

You can add unlimited Pages (Paths). For example if you have four URLS to protect:

www.pinheadsmusic.com/gymnasium
www.pinheadsmusic.com/enchantment
www.pinheadsmusic.com/temporal-experiment
www.pinheadsmusic.com/88mph

Step 4

Create Bundles

A bundle includes a selection of pages that it grants access to. Each bundle has one or more plans that defines how your customers can pay for access.

Give the bundle a name... this is what your subscribers will see as being subscribed to in their Paywallz Dashboard.

Step 5

Decide which protected content a subscribed will be able to access if they purchase/subscribe to the bundle being created here.

More information on pages and subpages are in step 9 & 10

Step 6

Okay, now you'll set the pricing for your Bundle. There are two kinds of purchasing for a Bundle:

One time = payment will only happen once
Subscription = recurring (weekly/semimonthly/monthly/annually)

In this example, the visitor can:

1. pay a one-time fee of $30 for eternal access to the pages in this Bundle.

2. pay an annually recurring fee of $30 for annual access to the pages in this Bundle but can Share and earn a Commission from referred subscriptions.

*Important* read the descriptions for Commissions and Sharing.

Step 7

You're basically done now. You can test on your live site... take a look at https://www.pinheadsmusic.com to see a working example of this tutorial.


Step 8 (optional)

Keep in mind your website structure can make protecting pages easier to manage too. You could organize your website so that all those pages you wish to protect are under one path (slug) like /music/ which would then make every sub-page protected eg.

www.pinheadsmusic.com/music/*
    *gymnasium
    *enchantment
    *temporal-experiment
    *88mph
    *anything else...

...but you wouldn't have to explicitly protect every Path because any subpage under /music/ would be protected.
