Restrict Content Pro alternative: how Leaky Paywall compares

With dozens of different WordPress-based plugins in the subscription/membership space, it can be hard to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Here at Zeen101, we are laser-focused on news and magazine publishers. Our Leaky Paywall product is more than your standard WordPress plugin. It’s an enterprise purpose-built solution designed to 3x your subscription revenues.

Let’s dive into specifics that separate Leaky Paywall from Restrict Content Pro and other plugins.

We are laser-focused on serving news and magazine publishers. This means that we not only provide a robust content restriction platform, but we also provide in-depth strategy and analysis to help our customers meet their subscription goals. We show you how to make the best of your paywall solution.

Our paywall can be cookie-based or IP-based. If you want to lock down content and prevent incognito browsing/browser switching, our IP-based paywall has got you covered. It also helps increase revenue!

We provide mobile apps for iOS and Android that integrates with your Leaky Paywall installation. Restrict content in your mobile apps and manage everything from the comfort of your WordPress dashboard.

We integrate with more than a dozen different CRM/fulfillment platforms keeping your subscriptions in sync across multiple systems.

Offer traditional flipbooks/pdfs to your customers and prevent link sharing by requiring readers to log in to view content.

Offer your customers an Ad-free experience subscription level using our AdDropper add-on (integrates with your existing ad platform too).

Collect shipping information from customers (for print fulfillment) without having to use a third-party plugin.

Protect download links from being shared with non-subscribers with ease using our Subscribe Downloads add-on.

If you’re looking for a simple content restriction plugin, Restrict Content Pro is a great fit. If you’re looking for more functionality designed specifically for news and magazine publishers, Leaky Paywall is the way to go.

Perhaps this may sound bias coming from a blog post on Leaky Paywall’s website—you’re not wrong, however, after using virtually everything plugin out there for my own news publisher clients, I joined the Zeen101/Leaky Paywall team because I fell in love with their product.
