Making your videos and presentations available for purchase on MediaZilla is simple. All Pro plans and above have access to this feature.
Go into the Monetize settings of the video or presentation you want to sell by clicking the 3 dots in the lower-right corner of its tile in your dashboard and selecting “Monetize” from the menu.
Before you can monetize your content, you must first connect your MediaZilla account to a Stripe account (one-time process) using the “Connect Stripe” button at the top. If you do not have an existing Stripe account, one is created during the connection process.
Once connected, the status of your Stripe account will show as 'Active', 'Pending', or 'Not Active'. 'Pending' indicates Stripe is still verifying your information (usually takes a few minutes). 'Not Active' indicates Stripe needs information from you to complete your account setup (to be completed from your Stripe dashboard). Once your Stripe account status becomes 'Active', you can then enable the paywall for that video or presentation.
Once enabled, set the price and currency of the content in the field below.
Save the changes and use the provided paywall link to sell access to the content.
A preview of the paywall page is displayed below the monetization settings.
Paywall Link vs Share Link
The Paywall Link is completely separate from the Share Link, which can also be enabled at the same time. For example, you could provide simple password protected access to some people using the share link, and paid access for others using the paywall link.
Customer's Purchase Experience
The commission amount (portion collected by MediaZilla) is displayed as well. The commission percentage will depend on your MediaZilla membership plan. For Enterprise pricing, please contact us through the live support channel or send us an email at email@example.com.
You can use the monetize feature to collect presales before the video is released! Learn more about this process.
