“We have seen growth in our overall number
of article reads thanks to the ease of
purchasing.”

“We see Feather as the best and honest solution for our
writers and platform to monetise the effort we put in.
In such a way that everyone who participated benefits.”

What is Feather?

Feather is an easy to install, frictionless WordPress plugin developed for you to easily monetise your content while writing just as you’re used to.

Define the price (in €) and the number of teaser paragraphs within our plugin dashboard, and press ‘Publish’. Your audience now uploads money to their wallets in a few simple steps, and can pay to read your article and all the other content they want on all platforms using the Feather plugin.

But wait! There is more! Although the cross-platform spending of money by your readers increases your readership, but Feather allows your content to be republished by our partner platforms. The Feather technology ensures that when your article is republished and read on our partner platforms you will get paid. If you like to understand more, read our blog here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Feather is an easy to use plugin that you can install on your WordPress website to monetise your content. With Feather you are able to offer your content paywalled to the reader. Readers will only be able to access the full article once they have paid your desired price for it.

The reader will be able to access your articles securely through iDeal, Mastercard and VISA payments.

We have a step-by-step manual to help you. If it is not set up properly, you can try uninstalling the plugin on www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin and then re-installing it. Lastly, if the problem persists further we are available to support you here.

We work hard every day to connect journalists and readers. When a journalist or publisher uses our plugin to publish their content, an agreement between us called a smart contract is stored on the blockchain. This agreement states that every time a transaction takes place (i.e. reader purchases an article), a part goes to the journalist and (possibly) a part goes to the platform / publisher, while 20% goes to us.

No, you can cash out any amount, at any balance, at any point of time. However, we charge a small fee for amounts below 10 euros; any amount above is at no extra charge.
