Premium Articles

The product allows you to hand-pick high value content and set up a paywall alternative before the story becomes accesible. The user is prompted to chose between one (default) or three possible advertisers that would support their free experience - triggering a full screen, vertical video ad. The product should differentiate the high-value, original content from the everyday reporting that’s easily available with different outlets.

1. Inventory

Selected articles can be manually flagged as premium - enabling the ad-paywall. 

2. Look and feel

Please see the video below for a better understanding of the process. Once one sponsor is selected, a full page, vertical video ad is played. The ad is skipable in any 5 or 15 seconds. Once the ad is delivered - the user gets access to the content for free. Alternatively - we support a micro-payment for the article, typically processed via the mobile operator, depending on the market. 


3. Ad Specs

Each story can whitelist specific sponsors to be presented to the user, or alternatively, tap into all platform demand for premium content sponsorships.
