Meet MultiPass

New Feature

For publishers with more than one related publication: now you can sell access to the entire network in one premium pass.

MultiPass is a single subscription solution for regional newspapers serving multiple towns or multiple magazine cousins published under one banner.

How MultiPass works:

  1. Set up a MultiPass subscription level of access on each website you want included;
  2. Choose what content can be accessed on each site with a MultiPass subscription (typically all-access);
  3. After purchasing, subscribers simply log in with their email and password on all your MultiPass websites.

The best part is that you don’t have to do any of the technical stuff yourself. We will configure it for you.

Get all the details on MultiPass.

New Integration: Authorize.net

Is Authorize.net your preferred payment gateway? Leaky Paywall now offers a premium extension that allows you to use Authorize.net to collect payments.
