What Is Subscribe with Google?

Subscribe with Google is Google’s reader revenue solution.

It allows publishers to sell subscriptions to their content through Google’s payment system, Google Pay.

Publishers can opt to have all of their premium content paywalled, allow a number of free views before requiring a subscription, or even simply request contributions.

The advantage for publishers and subscribers is ease of use.

For publishers, the set up is fairly simple. Google handles the billing and only retains 5% of the subscription price.

For subscribers, as long as they are logged in to their Google account, they can access paywalled content for all of the sites they are subscribed to through Google without having to sign in to each site individually.
