Paywalls

Giving you the choice to earn more.

What are paywalls?

Paywalls on a basic level are the ability to lock part of your content and make it paid content. Much like content that you may see online that can only be made accessible with a ‘membership’. Instead, we give users the ability to charge for parts of their content. The concept of paywalls is very much in line with our company philosophy--supporting the free economy and giving our users a choice. So if users are unlocking your content, it’s because they’re enjoying what you do.

How it works.

Readers can unlock the paywalls by transferring a selected amount of Bitcoin Cash directly to the author of the content using the ‘unlock’ button. Bitcoin Cash will then be moved from their Honest Cash wallet to the authors, almost instantly.

For each locked post associated with an account, each user with receive revenue in Bitcoin Cash based on how many times it is unlocked and the price that has been set to unlock it.

1. Write your content as normal--click publish--then you will see a pop-up box like the one below:

2. Tick the box 'I have a paid section in my story'.

3. Enter the amount you want to charge to unlock your content.

4. Select the paragraph you want your paid section of content to starts using the up and down arrows. 

5. When you're ready, hit publish!  Make sure you share your post on social media, as part of your email marketing, in online groups, comments, forums and with your family and friends.

Paywall fees.

When unlocking content, readers send 80% of the paywall amount to the linked author's wallet account. 20% is sent to the Honest account so we can stay ad-free. Upvote transactions remain without any fees (excl. miner fees).

We encourage you to review our new Terms of Service in detail, especially the section "Paywalls & Premium content (Member Services Terms of Service)".

Awesome ! Here's some suggestions to make the website even better :

- Add an icon next to the stories with paywalls so people know about it before clicking. - Writers with a following can offer their followers the ability to buy a month/year subscription in the form of SLP Tokens. Buying the Token/subscription has to be cheaper than buying articles individually. For example, if I have the $HONEST2019 token in my wallet, all stories behind a paywall published by the Honest_Cash account in 2019 will be automatically available to read.

- The ability to delete stories (for some reason, I can't find a way to delete some of my articles).
