Q. WHAT IS PIANO?

A. Piano Go is e-commerce for digital content. We provide powerful and flexible software tools for content creators to develop sustainable and successful business models on their own sites. Whether it’s creating a simple paywall, or customizing a website experience with our API, we have a solution for anyone that makes great content.

Q. HOW DO I USE IT?

A. Piano Go can be deployed using our lightweight Javascript solution, WordPress plugin, integration with Brightcove, or API. Currently we offer libraries for Java, .NET, Ruby and PHP. You’ll need to sign up for a publisher account to get started: https://dashboard.tinypass.com/register

Q. WHAT MAKES PIANO GO UNIQUE?

A. We focus on enabling publishers to become user-supported by developing a more transparent relationship between them and their fans. Piano Go also provides users with a federated account where they can manage multiple subscriptions and payment methods to sites around the world.

Q. WHAT DOES IT COST TO USE PIANO GO?

A. We pride ourselves on offering unique and useful technology, great support for you and your users, no startup cost, and a fair and transparent fee structure. We make money by deducting a small percentage of each transaction that’s processed by Piano. In return, not only do we take care of processing fees, we provide you with a suite of tools to customize your site’s business model, gather information on your users, and review analytics. For more information, please contact support@piano.io.

Q. HOW DO I GET STARTED?

A. It’s quick, easy (and free) to get started with Piano Go. Just register for a publisher account, and read our documentation on how to start monetizing content! Remember, we can also be reached here to support@piano.io.

Q: WILL PIANO GO AFFECT MY SEO?

If you have previews enabled for Piano Go, then it will not affect your website’s SEO. If you have a hard paywall that blocks access to your content immediately, then it could affect your SEO. If most of your hits come from organic search, we recommend that you use previews and a counter to encourage your viewers to
