Onscribe allows everyone to launch a subscription service with multiple providers from their WordPress site.

Whether you’re a blogger or an artist, you work hard producing your content. And although it may be a labour of love, you deserve to be rewarded for your efforts.

Onscribe takes the pain out of setting up payment gateways and makes it a snap for you to add subscription buttons to your site, blog, app or online game, so all your fans can actively show their support in a meaningful way.

The WordPress plugin is designed with ease of use in mind, making it easy to include subscription buttons anywhere on the site through the use of shortcodes.

A few highlights of the service:

  • Simple integration with WordPress
  • Secure processing using major third-party payment providers
  • All inclusive UI for both publishers and subscribers
  • Extensible through API

Like WordPress, Onscribe is people-centric and wants to give more power to its users.
