Release Notes

Initial Release


Do I need a TrialPay account to try this out?

No, the widget will come up with a functioning set of default values, using our button graphic and TrialPay store URL. So you can play, and see how it works. You should change the TrialPay store URL after you have your account set up.

What is TrialPay?

TrialPay is a company that matches consumers with offers from name-brand companies like Vonage, TiVo, BlockBuster, Discover, American Express, Geico, and the Wall Street Journal. Those companies pay big $$$ for new customers. If you send them new customers, they’ll pay YOU!

How much does TrialPay pay?

Some offers pay just a few dollars, some pay close to $50. It varies by company, offer, and region. We use TrialPay as an alternative payment for our popular shareware utility, and
the TrialPay payments average about $15.

How do I get a TrialPay account?

Please sign up with our referral link: It will take about a day to be approved, and then you will have your own links. And then YOU can participate in their referral program too!
