San Francisco-based Cointent has raised $1 million in its initial funding to become a provider of micropayments to online publishers. The service would enable online content providers to sell individual articles, songs, videos, etc for as little as five cents.
Publishers integrate the CoinTent via our API or through our WordPress plugin. Publishers determine what content to sell and at what price. Our services handle the payments, content gate flag, account services, customer service, analytics, fraud prevention, and flow optimization among other offerings. Consumers who have an account can purchase your content with one click. Consumers without an account can set up an account and fund their wallet while staying on your website, and then continue to purchase and access your content.
The Company was founded by Bradley Ross,
Occidental College BA, Mathematics, Bigi Lui CTO, Co-Founder University of Californa at Davis BS, CSE, and Kendra Gibbons Director of Engineering, Co-Founder University of Pennsylvania BSE, DMD.
