First of all we would like to thank you for taking the time out to install and configure our micropayment paywall plugin built especially for WordPress. By utilizing blockchain technology we are able to bring about an entirely new form of content monetization.
Traditionally paywalls have been hard to implement and even harder for consumers to use. We have taken as many steps as possible to make this micropayment paywall the easiest to implement for publishers, and even easier for consumers. We’re glad you are here to give us a try and open up a new revenue stream for you, and your business. Let’s get started, shall we?

If using the Woocommerce category option of the plugin you can keep users on your site without having to leave creating a seamless branded experience.
a. Create The Product Category
Depending on how many plugins you have installed will dictate where the “Products” tab is located, hovering over the tab will present the option that allows you to choose “Categories” and create a new product category.
b. Confirm The Category Slug
You will want to make note of the name of the category slug in the previous step so that there are no issues when connecting the two platforms (WooCommerce & Micropayment.io) together.
c. Add To Step 3 Of The Setup
After double checking that the slug name is correct, adding the lower case version of the category slug to step 3 of the install wizard will activate WooCommerce functionality, and if left blank will disable Woocommerce capability.
