Customizable Membership Paywall

Digital Subscriptions integrate directly with the Our-Hometown WordPress CMS, allowing you to sell and manage online subscribers through the same portal you use for updating your website.

Our Hometown’s Digital Subscriptions give you the ability to create custom plans to fit the needs of your publication and its readers.

You will have complete control of the pricing, duration, access level, and renewal settings of each subscription plan you create.

This allows you to experiment with different publishing strategies to find a subscription model that generates enough revenue to be sustainable while best serving your audience.

Timed Paywalls
Choose to give access to a limited number of articles or to only new editions or old editions. We let you completely customize your paywall options.
Paywall by Category or Article
Choose which content non-subscribers can see, from the category or article level. Even make specific content free, such as breaking news.
Recurring Payment Subscriptions
If you use Stripe for your payment gateway, setting up a recurring subscription option has never been easier or safer. Earn more over the year while readers pay a monthly fee, automatically.
Instant Online Subscriptions
For non-subscribed readers who want to access content, they can sign up immediately, adding to your revenue stream.
Limited-Time Subscriptions
You have the option to grant small-fee, one time subscriptions to an individual edition or for a short time period (24 hour minimum), adding the opportunity for additional incremental revenue.
Advertising Never Hidden
Never hide yours ads or impact your advertisers' visibility. Even add special ads to the paywall pages.

Customized paywall options

It’s up to you to decide what content is free and what needs an active subscription to access.

Your newest issue, your E-edition & your site’s archives can all act independently.

For example, your newest issue can be behind the paywall, but your archives may be accessible even to anonymous users. 

It's completely up to you! 

Schedule your premium content

Premium content is protected by the paywall. It can set relative to the issue date so old or new content can be free or premium.

These settings include E-editions - you can even restrict access to E-editions, regardless of other premium content settings.

Advertising content is always visible, regardless of the paywall.

Individual categories can set set as permanently free access as needed -- for example many sites choose to make their obituaries free access.

In addition, individual articles can be set as free access individually, regardless of the sitewide paywall settings.

Handy for breaking news or featured stories that the publisher wishes to share on social media.
