PUBLISHER

Do you have content that you want visitors to pay a subscription to access?

As a Publisher, you own the website and install the Paywallz widget on your site. Once you have configured your Paywallz, you can start earning money from one-time purchases (trials) or subscriptions.


FEEs

All subscriptions (purchases) have a default transaction fee: This fee is automatically reduced as the Publisher's revenue increases:

Diamond Gold Silver Bronze
Monthly requirment $40,000+ $20,000+ $10,000+ N/A
Per transaction fee 2.9% + $0.30 3.9% + $0.32 4.9% + $0.34 5.9% + $0.35

eg. A single subscription charged at $20 would have a total transaction fee of $0.88 (based on our best rate).

Publisher's can choose to make subscribers pay for access to their protected content.

You earn money from the subscription price you select. Your earnings are electronically transferred to your bank account on a 2 day rolling basis.

COMMISSIONs

eg. A single subscription charged at $20 that pays out a 25% commission to a partner ($5) would have a total transaction fee of $1.28 (based on our best rate).

Your Partners, if any, receive a commission for referred Subscriptions to your site. Each time a visitor to a Partner's page follows their link to your site and then subscribes to one of your plans, the referring Partner will receive a commission for the subscription.

  • Publisher controls Partner commission rate.
  • Commission is based on total transaction amount.
  • Partner commission transactions have a 2% surcharge (incurred by the publisher)
  • Partners do not pay any transaction fees.

Payouts

Publisher Earnings and Partner Commissions (if any) are automatically transferred from Paywallz to the Publisher and Partner (if any) within 2 days of the customer charge.
