Paywall or pay-per-view video/ webinar content

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to figure out a clean solution to enabling a pay-per-view + subscription option for online video content. We're looking to include webinars and teaching videos on our website, and I'm wondering if anyone has found a clean way of enabling visitors to either a) pay-per-view or b) create a subscription to access video content. I've found a few outside platforms, but they appear to be quite costly, and we'd like a clean integration into the Squarespace site. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Squarespace now has an optional (additional cost) feature called Member Areas that allows you to monetise your content by adding paid areas to a Squarespace website. You'll find more details in the link above.

Hi Paul . Thanks for your answer! The link to Member Areas do not define any solutions, as far as I can see, only different templates.  I assume that under premium features, in these templates, you can design a salespoint that embeds pay per peer?  I have not fiddled enough with it yet to find the steps for integration of a pay per peer through squarespace, but a more exact guiding description of the form-names needed to do this is. Can you provide that pls :)?

@Alexg77 I have exactly the same query. I have 'pay per view' articles I want to put into a member area. However once the articles are in the member area, a subscriber just has to pay once to be a member, then gets all the articles for one fee. Perhaps I have to create a member area for each article?

@paul2009 Any tips for providing multiple items of 'gated' or 'paid' content within a member area? It would be great if Squarespace created a button that allowed users to just pay to view a single article without the member area sign-in being required - it adds another friction point.
