The Silicon Review
Mash makes it easy for you to convert your users into customers, fans & supporters– by enabling them to pay any amount based on usage, for that one thing, or to say "thanks" with an instant boost-donation. Break the purchase commitment barrier. Stop relying on platforms & ads, or trying to get subscribers when it doesn't make sense. Implement a business model that works. Charge any amount for a scroll, click, vote, download or interaction – even just $0.001. Let your users “stream money" to you as-they-enjoy your experiences. Or have them make a one-time purchase of any amount for anything. Remove the purchase commitment barrier; start earning for things you never possible. The easiest and fastest way to get paid by your users. You decide pricing, any amount, and how to charge. Users decide if they want to contribute on-time, or add a budget for interruption free enjoyment. It's a low-commitment experience that gets them started contributing. You all have full control of your money – and experiences. No "tokens" or "credits". It's yours. Let your users support you without friction, interruption or worry. They can set a budget, and auto-pay without interruption, and control of their funds. They can buy that one thing, without needing a subscription. You can set a spend cap, which is the maximum amount they'll contribute before you reward them with free access. They're enjoying without worry – and contributing plenty.
Provide freebies so your users can try-before-they-buy. You can provide free access to engage new and existing users each month – build your audience and brand. Some ways include: For an entire piece of content – such as 3 premium videos, 3 articles, 10 gameplays. For parts of an experience – like the first 5 minutes of a live event, or 20 minutes of premium video each month. Charge for the amounts large and small as users engage. Want to charge $0.01 per minute of video watched? Cool. $1.00 per article read, all good. $5 to download a premium image or article – it works. All without the restrictions and per charge costs of credit cards. And it's your money, your wallet, your pricing. Same with your users. If it's your users first time using Mash – all they need is a credit or debit card – no Bitcoin knowledge necessary. Their funds are also theirs – they can use them on your site, other Mash sites, across the web – or send them to friends, other wallets or exchanges. It's their money. It's treated that way.
