"We at VeloceToday.com have been watching the growth of paid Internet content since the Wall Street Journal began to charge its readers. But it wasn't until MediaPass created their simple and effective means to bill for content that we finally realized we could now have a viable way to bill our readers."
"We looked at off-the-shelf subscription products and other options for SocialToddler’s paywall but they all required confusing integrations, had very little customization and any bugs would be our problem to deal with. MediaPass is not just the easiest subscription technology available, it’s a service. Full service!"
CEO, Social Toddler
"MediaPass gives independent content services like Mr. Media Interviews a level playing field to compete for subscription revenue. And the customer service is extraordinary."
