When is Cleeng Paywall More Useful than Dacast Paywall?
Dacast’s paywall provides an English-based, white-label paywall integrated into our player. It supports USD and EUR.
It covers most of the situation but, if you need to provide your viewers with a specific currency or a specific language, then Cleeng paywall is a very qualified paywall provider.
Dacast is directly integrated with the Cleeng platform which allows you to set up your Dacast live channel with a Cleeng paywall in a few minutes.

Types of Monetization Available with Dacast
There are three methods of monetization offered by Dacast: SVOD, TVOD, and AVOD.
SVOD is a subscription-based method that allows viewers to have unlimited access to a video library for as long as their subscription lasts. Subscriptions are typically weekly, monthly, or quarterly.
TVOD is most commonly known as pay-per-view. As the name suggests, viewers pay for what they want to watch.
AVOD refers to ad-based monetization. You have the option to serve ads on your content. Ads are funded by your advertisers, so rather than paying out of pocket, your viewers pay for the content with a minute or so of their time.
If you have any questions about video monetization or need help with this Dacast feature, feel free to contact us directly.
