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.

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.
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 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.
We were previously known as Zipsub. To avoid possible incursion into other trademarks and to make ourselves more memorable, we changed to Tapview.
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.
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.
Tapview raised $60K in convertible note to continue development and expand our operations.
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.
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.
We're here to give you a good experience on the Internet. If you see a transaction that's out of the ordinary, let us know! We'll look into it for you.
We also want your feedback on whether the content is "not as advertised". That is, they promised something and they didn't deliver.
