Unlock Content With Reader Login
Easily convert your existing paid subscribers to MagLoft by creating custom subscriptions.
Use custom subscriptions to unlock content that is normally hidden or for contributors and sponsors.
Request that new custom subscriptions confirm their email address before they get access.
How To Create A Custom Subscription
1. Add The Email Address
You will need an email address of your existing subscriber in order to create a custom subscription for them. You have the option to confirm their email immediately or send a confirmation email with a verification link they need to click on to approve.
2. Create A Password
Create a password for the new custom subscriber. You have the option to either type a custom password or leave the field blank to generate a random password.
3. Define Start And End Dates
Determine which start and end date the custom subscription should cover. Typically the start date will be from the date your reader purchased a subscription. The end date can be left blank which will let the subscription run until cancelled by adding an end date.
Any paid, hidden, subscribe and unlock issue types will be made available for the reader in the defined date range.
4. Add Subscription
Click the add subscription button to create the reader and custom subscription. The reader will receive an email with their login details and can now access content in your apps.
Special Issue Unlock Types For Custom Subscriptions
When publishing with MagLoft you can use the following unlocking options for each of your issues. Creating custom subscriptions for readers will unlock and make available all these types.
Unlock individual paid issues for your existing readers.

Issues that require a free email registration in your apps.
Manually Import And Export Custom Subscribers
