It’s very hard for a journal, blog, or magazine to build a viable business based on display advertising alone, because the traffic numbers aren’t high enough. But with Piano, this extraordinarily valuable content can be paid for by the audiences that want it most.
Instructional content is prime material for paid access models. Many sites post videos of classes and other instructional material and charge their customers either for access to individual pieces of content or for subscriptions to a library of courses.

Answers to common questions
How do I get started?
Just create a Piano publisher account. You’ll receive code to put on your pages (or your key to drop into WordPress), and you’ll be in trial mode, where if you like, you can complete three transactions of up to $5 each to test. At any point, fill out your brief Piano application, which we’ll try to approve within 24 hours. Then, you’ll be up and running with your new digital business!
Do I need a merchant account?
Nope! We take care of all that for you, giving you the ability to accept credit cards, PayPal, Amazon payments, Dwolla, and Bitcoin, right out of the box.
How do I get paid?
Thirty days after each transaction takes place, that amount is added to your Available Balance. You then just hit your “Request Payout,” and let us know whether you want to be paid via check, wire, or PayPal.
Can you work with my CMS? My video provider? With my unique business concept? I’ve got all sorts of specific questions!
