BTCPayWall – The Bitcoin Paywall to sell content and digital products on WordPress
BTCPayWall supports four different modules to distribute its digital products and content:
- Pay-per-post for the sale of individual blog posts and newspaper articles
- Pay-per-view for the sale of videos that are played directly
- Download store for selling digital files that are downloaded
- Tipping for receiving donations and tips
Sell individual blog articles, digital content and products like videos, eBooks or PDF files and receive tips and donations through your website.
Pay for a single blog article (pay-per-post)
With BTCPayWall you can offer a Bitcoin Paywall for a single blog post (pay-per-post). Instead of a monthly subscription, readers can pay for a single article.
Pay per video (pay-per-view)
Sell digital content that is played directly. With the View module, you can offer videos or audio files to your visitors for a fee and have them played directly on your own website.
With the Download Store you can sell your digital files and the customer can download this file to his computer.
Receive tips & donations
Receive financial support from visitors to your site in the form of a tip payment or a donation to a larger project.
Advantages for the publisher

Publishers can become independent from banner ads, Google and clickbait content and focus more on high quality content that readers are willing to pay for.

The advantages of BTCPayWall for the customer
Customers do not want to sign up for lengthy subscriptions when they really only want to read a single article.
The user wants to buy digital content spontaneously and anonymously and avoid a lengthy sign-up and registration process, with the disclosure of a variety of personal data.
- No login or registration required
- No transmission of personal data (privacy) required
- No lengthy subscription process if you only want to read a single article
- Fast and easy payment via Bitcoin and Lightning
Digital content is paid for via Bitcoin and Lightning payment methods.
