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.

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.
19 Subscription Cards & Nag Prompts to Inspire Conversions
Your subscription cards and nags can be a powerful weapon in your conversion arsenal. Too many publishers leave them set to default rather than customizing them for maximum impact on the reader. It’s a relatively simple process that can have a big impact.
Check out some great subscription card and nag examples.
