Tinypass Unveils New Approach to Paid Downloads

Tinypass, which enables media companies and websites to create paid content business models, announced today the release of Tinypass Downloads™, making it easy for publishers to quickly sell access to downloadable assets on their own sites. The new Tinypass Downloads takes only a matter of minutes to implement and, unlike other download monetization tools, never requires the customer to leave the publisher’s site. Tinypass Downloads augments the company’s broad content ecommerce product line, including paywalls, donations, and videos.

Utilized by over 250 media companies, publishers, research firms, education companies and other businesses to implement their paid content strategies, the Tinypass platform allows clients to develop customized pricing models for all types of digital media. Tinypass scales to support operations of any size, is free to set up and provides users with the functionality of major paywalls and download services in a flexible and easy-to-use package.

“Many publishers’ most valuable content is downloadable: from research reports to video clips to podcasts,” said Trevor Kaufman, CEO of Tinypass. “Publishers have been seeking a simple way to offer these assets within their existing site, with individual prices, surrounded by their own branding and messaging. Tinypass Downloads makes monetizing this content easier than ever.”

In addition, Tinypass has released an all-new publisher guide at publisher.tinypass.com. Filled with how-to articles, a Q&A forum, tips and tricks and integration guides to popular platforms like Squarespace, Tumblr, Weebly, WordPress and more, the publisher guide is the definitive resource to succeeding with content-based ecommerce.
