We have been using Leaky Paywall for five years and it has been excellent for our WordPress site. First of all, revenue went up and continues to go up. Second of all, they continue to innovate and offer us different ways to get our content to our audience while also generating revenue and building relationships with our readers. Third of all, they are responsive to support requests and really value you as a customer. Highly recommended.

Leaky Paywall now provides me with all of the services and support that I need to run a six-figure business at a tiny fraction of what it would cost to hire a team to do the same work. I will almost surely tap into additional offerings from them in the very near future, especially considering my current growth rate/trajectory.
