Unstack allows users with Full+ subscription to designate any page or article as "Premium".
When a page is enabled as premium, users must register a free account or purchase a paid subscription to view the page.
- View any Unstack page/article after upgrading to Full+ and access your settings using the gear icon in the top right-hand corner.
- In your settings, scroll down until you see the dropdown box with the titled "Designate this as premium content?" and select the option "Yes". If you want to restrict free users, you'll need to check the box just underneath.
Below is an example of what users see when they visit a page that has been gated.
Free subscriptions require visitors to create an account. When selected, users will need to register with your site. Once they complete the registration form they will have an account they sign in and out of on your website. When signed in, they will be able to view all premium content that requires an account to view.
You're also able to add additional permissions to require the user to have an active paid subscription. To enable this, you must have Stripe
integrated with your Unstack account. When Stripe is connected you will be able to choose the specific required subscription that users need to have to view the content. Once you choose this and save the page, users are asked to create an account followed by another prompt asking them to enter their credit card info.
How do I manage my subscribers?
All subscribers can be seen in your Unstack contacts, including contact information, charges for premium content, pages views, and their life-time value. If a user wishes to cancel their subscription, you should cancel the subscription directly in Stripe. Unstack periodically synchronizes and updates subscription information.
Why isn't my content gating properly?
- Articles are only able to be gated if there are more than 50 words on the page. The first 50 words are shown as a preview, and the rest of the content on the article is what is effectively gated.
- For pages, there needs to be at least two sections for the second section (and subsequent others) to be gated.
