How to Set Up a Paywall on Your WordPress Site (Why You Should) - WPMU DEV
Various Paywall Models
Not all paywalls are the same. There are varying kinds based on the type of content that is being locked and the overall business model of the site. Here are four of the most popular paywall models.

1. Pay-Per-View
The Pay-Per-View model is exactly what it sounds like. Visitors are shown the title of the article, as well as the lede or an abstract if it’s a scholarly piece, and prompted for payment if they want to read it.

This model is generally reserved for sites that feature research information that’s in some level of demand. A medical journal offering articles about correlations between certain behaviors and health issues would probably opt for this model. That’s because visitors to the site are often there to read only one article for research purposes. There are not too many people who “browse” medical journals.

2. Free for a Time
This model gives visitors free access to the site for a specific period of time (maybe a month) before requiring a subscription. This way, visitors can get an idea of the type of content that’s on the site before they decide to pay for it.

3. Subscription
The subscription model is just as it sounds. People pay a fee and get unlimited access to the site for a period of time. Once the subscription runs out, the content is locked for that person unless he or she renews the subscription.

4. Metered Paywall
The metered paywall solution is popular with some well-known companies. For example, The Washington Post allows just five articles per month for free before requiring a subscription. If you browse a couple of articles at the site, you should see a pop-up window appear in the lower left-hand corner of your browser that will warn you that you can only read a few more articles before you have to subscribe. The metered paywall is another model that enables visitors to get an idea about the type of content being offered before making the financial commitment to read it regularly.
