TinyPass will be shutting down on January 1, 2020, making this the perfect time to move your website over to LaterPay with our easy-to-use WordPress plugin! 

 

Not only is LaterPay an incredibly versatile tool for generating revenue from your readers, but the migration itself is quick and easy to accomplish. You’ll find all the information you need to do so below.

 

So let’s start by running through the steps that you’re going to need to take to get up and running with the LaterPay plugin:

 

Setting up the Plugin

  1. Create a LaterPay account - it will only take you a few minutes to register.
  2. Install the WordPress Plugin, and familiarize yourself with its functionality. You should find everything you need to know in this article. And remember: you can always reach out to us at integration@laterpay.net, and we’ll be happy help you out!
  3. Make sure that your purchase options in the LaterPay plugin match what you used for TinyPass.
  4. Set the plugin mode to “TEST” - this will allow you to see how LaterPay will be displayed on your website without actually going live.

Switching to LaterPay

  1. Once you have mapped all your TinyPass purchase options to LaterPay’s, you can go ahead and deactivate the TinyPass plugin. 
  2. Navigate to ‘Plugins’ and find the TinyPass plugin on the list. Click “Deactivate.”
    • The purchases your users have made with TinyPass will then be processed in the final billing cycle.
  3. You can now switch the LaterPay plugin to “LIVE.”. 

That’s it! You’re all done. All your selected paywalled posts should now appear behind a paywall for your visitors. If you have any additional questions, check out our FAQ below, or the LaterPay Academy for guides and walk-throughs. And you can, of course, always reach us on integration@laterpay.net, and we’ll  help you out!

 

FAQ:

  • Can customers who are registered with TinyPass move their subscription over to LaterPay?Unfortunately, this does not work out of the box. You can, however, offer “vouchers” to your existing subscribers which can then be used to reduce the cost, or make the new LaterPay subscription free of charge for them.
  • How much does LaterPay charge?
    LaterPay charges a flat 15% fee on all of the money that you receive through our system. In other words, out of each dollar you make, LaterPay takes 15 cents. There are no additional charges, such as monthly fees, set-up fees, payment processing fees, payout fees, or chargeback fees.
  • Do LaterPay’s purchasing options complement those of TinyPass?
    Not only do they complement them, they actually extend them! LaterPay makes it as simple as possible for users to buy, contribute, and donate for digital goods and services. Whether it is with the LaterPay method - allowing users to commit to purchase with one or two clicks, without registering or paying in advance - or the Pay Now method. We offer a flexible and customizable platform for on-boarding casual users into paying customers at an extremely high rate when compared to other methods.
  • I would like to use LaterPay on more websites - however they are not in WordPress. Can I do this?
    Of course. You can use the LaterPay Connector to - as its name suggests - connect any website you have with our solution. You can find more information here.
