MediaPass™ has announced the launch of the MediaPass subscription plugin for WordPress. MediaPass allows web publishers to earn money by charging for premium content, without turning on a site-wide registration system or directing end users to an off-site third party.
By downloading the MediaPass plugin, subscriptions can now be enabled on WordPress sites with the click of a button. Websites can charge for premium pages, specific articles and posts, or video content leveraging MediaPass’ multiple implementation options. On the heels of the New York Times, newspapers such as The Dallas Morning News and The Daily Telegram recently announced their own plans for an online subscription model. While news remains a popular category for subscriptions, existing customers use MediaPass to charge for various types of premium content such as job listings, blog posts, obituaries, and podcasts.
“WordPress is an extremely popular and powerful choice for publishers, so we’re thrilled about the release of our WordPress plugin. This is another step in making subscriptions even easier for any website of any size. We continue to show subscription revenue is increasingly vital to the success of content sites – and it’s confirmed every day with the revenue numbers MediaPass publishers are generating,” said Matt Mitchell, CEO of MediaPass.
MediaPass is a full-service subscription solution with customizable features and secure billing management. Merchant processing, fraud protection, and customer service are provided to all MediaPass publishers, and will also be available for WordPress plugin users. The plugin can be downloaded at http://www.mediapass.com/wordpress and is free for all users.
MediaPass™ (http://www.mediapass.com) is a leading subscription solution for websites and works on any platform or CMS. Using MediaPass, a website can sell recurring subscriptions to their online content, without the resources and costs typically associated with in-house development. Founded by experts in online subscription models, MediaPass aims to service the growing world of web publishers who are frustrated with the limitations of an advertising-based revenue model and desire a simple, yet customizable subscription product.
