Introduction

Our PPV (Pay Per View) feature allows you to set value for individual content. When a user clicks on a PPV content, he/she sees a popup that they need to pay a certain amount of money to view the content for a certain period of time. You can set different values for subscribers and non-subscribers as well as for Single Part, Multi Part and Live Streaming content.

Note: First you need to integrate Payment Gateway (Monetization --> Payment Gateway) to enable PPV plan.

 

Enabling Pay Per View

Before adding Pay Per View plan, first you need to enable this feature in your CMS.

  • To enable PPV, go to “Monetization-->Settings” in your CMS.
  • Under “Monetization Model” select the check box “Pay Per View
  • Finally, click on “Update

PPV will be enabled for your store. Once PPV is enabled, it will be displayed under the Monetization menu. ((Monetization -->Pay Per View)

Note: You can also enable PPV at the time of free trial
