Now Playing: Embeddable Subscriptions Beta

By Chris Smith on June 26, 2015

At Zype, our goal is to make it easy for you to build and make money from your own branded streaming destinations. That’s why we are excited to introduce a new feature that will make it easier than ever for you to generate revenue from your videos: Embeddable Subscriptions.


Note: This feature is currently in private beta testing. Please see below for access information.

With Embeddable Subscriptions, you can easily implement a Subscription Video On-Demand (SVOD) model in your online web, mobile, and set-top video apps - no development required.

With the click of a button, you can make some or all of your videos “subscriber only”, requiring viewers to sign into or register a new paid subscription account before gaining access. In addition, Zype will provide you with embeddable widgets allowing your viewers to purchase a subscription directly from your website.


Embeddable Subscriptions allows you to customize the plans available to your users, with options for price, billing periods, free trial periods, and coupons. The service uses your own Stripe or BrainTree account to store subscriptions and receive payments, so you receive 100% of the revenue right away.

Best of all, no development is required to get up and running with your own branded subscription service. Your video players will automatically prompt viewers to login or subscribe on subscriber-only videos, and you’ll have access to embed code to place on your website for a turnkey subscription portal experience. Should you wish to extend the functionality of Embeddable Subscriptions, a comprehensive API is available to help you manage your users and subscriptions.

With Zype, it’s now easier than ever to make money from your streaming platforms by implementing paid subscription access. For more information on how Embeddable Subscriptions works, check out the video below:
