Driving the future of digital subscriptions

Making subscriptions simple

In collaboration with partners, we’ve developed a holistic suite of products and policies to help news publishers build sustainable digital businesses by growing direct consumer revenue streams. This solution makes it easier for publishers to reach new readers, drive conversions, and engage subscribers.

Designed to help publishers thrive in today's ecosystem

Expand reach

Flexible Sampling allows publishers to decide how many free articles a publisher wants to provide to potential subscribers based on their own business strategies.

See our guide on Flexible Sampling for more details on this approach.

Drive conversions

Subscribe with Google enables customers to use their Google account and payment methods to subscribe across the web, eliminating the need for account registration, memorizing new passwords, or entering new credit cards. Google manages the subscription, but publishers choose what to offer and can manage the customer relationship.

Engage subscribers

We’re also helping existing subscribers enjoy their content more easily. Subscribe with Google helps users stay logged in, retain access to their premium content, and encounter that content on Google products. With retention and analytics features from Google Play’s subscription infrastructure, publishers can also benefit from insights on the impact of their pricing strategies and techniques to minimize churn.
