Answers to common questions

Frequently asked questions

Is the Reader account really anonymous?

Yes! There is no way a Reader username can be traced to a real-world identity. Even wallet loading operations are sanitized so the money can’t be followed.

What is the cost of creating an account?

Zero. Creating a Paperview account as a Reader, as a Publisher and as a Reseller is completely free. There are no setup fees and no maintenance fees either.

How do I load my wallet?

Go to myPaperview.com, login and select the option “load wallet”. Define an amount and select a payment method. From then on, it’s pretty much the usual stuff.

What is the cost of reading an article?

The value of content is set by its Publisher. It will vary depending on its target audience like technical publications, or its temporary value like exclusives, for instance.

What is the Influencer program?

Some people lead the way when they share content, in social media for example. Some Publishers reward these opinion leaders. Anyone can be an Influencer, for free.

What is the role of Aggregators?

Aggregators are a valuable part of content’s lifecycle. Aggregators, or Resellers in Paperview, have a pallet of tools to work with Publishers adding value to content.
