After coming aboard PaywallProject, the Welch News grew their paid digital subscriptions from $0/mo to ~$3,000 per month in less than 2 years in a town with a total population of about 2000 people.

Pricing comparison

Newspack starts at $750/mo. For most local news publishers, this is a non-starter. Our goal has always been to make sure that the tech needed to start a successful digital subscription/membership/donation site is within reach regardless of the size of your news operation. We start at $249/mo. If you run a weekly news publication, a digital news startup, or serve a small to medium-size market, you qualify for $199 per month pricing with PaywallProject. For larger publications, please get in touch for a custom quote.

We provide strategy and consulting from the very beginning to help meet your goals. Whether you are planning to implement a paid digital subscription model or a donation model, we can help. Generate more revenue!
