Frictionless content payments

With a single signup across all publishers on Tapview, readers can purchase content with a single click.

Single signup for frictionless payments


Give your readers the ability to pay for articles one at a time. Publishers set their own price for content. You determine which articles are premium and which ones are free.


Our integrated subscriptions system allows your regular readers to get consistent access and give your occasional readers a path to upgrade. Subscriptions give the publishers the ability to send newsletters to draw readers back to your site.


Collect information about what your readers are reading, and what their micropayments data says about their spending habits.


Engage all your users and maximise your revenue.

Our Journey

  • Start

    November 2015

    Startup established

    After pitching 6 ideas to each other, we settled on the idea of Tapview. We lived together in a holiday house for 3 weeks while creating our minimum viable product.

  • Stone & Chalk

    January 2016

    Join Stone and Chalk

    We applied to and were admitted as a resident startup of Stone & Chalk, Australia's largest Fintech hub. Being part of this working space gives us access to relevant skills and contacts that have helped us succeed.

  • H2

    April 2016

    H2 Ventures investment and accelerator

    H2 Ventures invested $100K into our company for a 10% fully diluted stake, which implies a $1 million valuation. The H2 accelerator gave us fantastic guidance while building our business.

  • Rebrand

    May 2016


    We were previously known as Zipsub. To avoid possible incursion into other trademarks and to make ourselves more memorable, we changed to Tapview.

  • Subscriptions

    September 2016

    Subscriptions added to service

    Subscriptions are something that publishers wanted, and we listened. With a lot of hard work, we put together a comprehensive subscriptions system that makes us a one-stop-shop for content access management, from the smallest blog to the largest media conglomerate.

  • Next Money

    November 2016

    Next Money Fintech finals Sydney winners

    Tapview won the Sydney round of the Fintech Finals. This gave Tapview the chance to present at the Hong Kong finals in January 2017. Watch it here.

  • Capital raised

    January 2017

    Additional Capital: $60k

    Tapview raised $60K in convertible note to continue development and expand our operations.

  • Improved signup flow

    March 2017

    Improved Tapview Signup Flow

    Tapview's new signup flow is faster than ever. We implemented two-click signups with Facebook, and converted our entire signup process to be a single-page app. Publishers can be certain that customers are more likely to complete the signup flow on Tapview than any other registration system.

  • Tapview

    March 2017

    Implemented adblock targeting

    With Tapview's adblock targeting, publishers can let adblock users have two options: pay a small amount for the content they are viewing, or whitelist the site in adblock to get through for free. It's a win-win for publishers: more ad revenue or direct micropayment revenue.
