Monetization

Adding web monetization to your Geo account is easy and free. Once you have completed these steps, you will start getting paid for the content that you create on the site. You can also mark specific posts to be only visible to paying members. With web monetization, users pay a flat $5/month and with this gain access to exclusive content on Geo as well as premium sites like Imgur, Cinnamon Video, Twitch, and writers and bloggers across the web. Web monetization is something that can be included on any blog or platform. If you are interested in adding web monetization to your site or want to learn more about it, follow the link below.

Free for Creators

While accessing exclusive content means signing up for a monthly service, creators can set this up and start getting paid for free. It is as easy as signing up for a free Geo account and following the steps outlined below.

Signing up for a free “Coil” account

You will need to have a “Coil” and “Uphold” account. This process is well documented here:

https://coil.com/signup

This process only takes about 5 minutes.

Adding your payment pointer to Geo

Once you have signed up for “Coil”, you will be issued a payment pointer. Signing up for a “Coil” account will not only allow you to monetize your content on Geo, but also other partners like Twitch and YouTube.

Copy this from the Settings->Monetize Content page within Coil.

And paste it into your Geo profile.

 

Marking Content as Public to Customers who do not Participate in Web Monetization

You can choose which content you want to show to non-paying customers. If a web monetized user visits your pages, you will always be paid, but this can act as an incentive to get people to sign up.

When you are creating a post, you have the option to add tags, which allows users to search your posts. If you include the tag ‘public,’ this content will be marked as available to all users, even if they are not participants of a web monetization platform.

That is it! Once you have completed these steps, only the content you choose is available to the public and all of your posts can start generating revenue.
