March 2022 Monthly Update: MultiPass and the WordPress REST API

Fast Updates for Busy People

Sometimes, we just want to make your life a little bit easier. 

This month, we’ve got a few updates to ease the way, a new feature to improve your reader experience and subscription options, and a publisher success story to help you gain some quick wins. 

Let’s go.

New Feature Sneak Peek: Multipass

Multipass is new option for publishers with more than one related publication: regional newspapers serving multiple towns or just multiple magazine cousins. 

Give your readers the option to subscribe on one publication for access to all of them.

With Multipass, once your readers register on one of your publications, they can use the same email and password to gain access to any linked publication. 

Currently Multipass is by request only. If you’re interested, go ahead and make the request. We’d love to talk it through with you. Find out more about Multipass.

Featured Update: Integration with WordPress REST API

Targeting and managing your different subscribers just got easier across the board. Control their access to special app content and more.

This integration gives you access enhanced access to your subscribers. Now you can identify them according not just to their role as a subscriber generally, but by their subscription level.
