Featured Tip:

Troubleshooting Fraud & Card Testing

Unfortunately, fraudulent card testing is on a worldwide upswing. Every e-commerce website experiences it: Fraudsters test stolen credit card information by attempting to make low-price-point purchases.

Fortunately, Leaky Paywall has options for combatting this activity on your site. Between recent updates to our reCAPTCHA extension and a number of options in our Stripe extension, you can minimize fraudulent activity on your site.

Get the full details and instructions.


Featured Update:

Hide Ads in Specific Articles

You now have the option to turn ads on or off for individual articles in the Ad Dropper extension. This joins the ability to control ad displays by subscriber level or content category, giving you even more control over your reader experience.

Learn more about Ad Dropper.

Check out some great subscription card and nag examples.
