Pico makes it easy to quickly launch free, registration-only, or paywalled video streams to your community. Unlike with other platforms that might host your video content (and take a large fee), Pico allows you to use your own Stripe account and host your content on your own site. Here's how:
Set up recurring membership
Set up a recurring membership or subscription (with multiple tiers if you want) – either hosted on a Pico-supplied landing page or directly on your site (check out https://coloradosun.com and their landing page https://api.pico.tools/pn/thecoloradosun/). . All you need is a Stripe account (which you can setup in Pico’s dashboard).
Paywall streaming content
Signup for a streaming video player service (eg, Vimeo, Streamspot, etc). Using Pico’s Signals feature, you can restrict access to different players (Signals allows you to show or hide elements on your site depending on whether a user is paying and/or what tier they’re paying). You can also use Pico to simply require an email signup to view content.
(NEW! If you want to give users the option to buy one-day, -week, or -month passes, you now can.)
Just want to ask for donations for now? You can do that too
You can have a donation page like this either on a hosted landing page or as a popup on your website live in <20 minutes. You just need a Stripe account (which you can setup in Pico’s dashboard). (Create a free Pico account here.)
