About Magablo

Every article on your FC2 Blog can be set as either normal (free) or Magablo (pay-to-view).
This means that it is possible to have an FC2 Blog that contains a mix of both free and pay-to-view blog articles.

There are two ways to sell Magablo.
These two systems are "Monthly Magablos" and "Standalone".
The Magablo creator as the ability to set their preferred sale style from their Sales Settings.
It is also possible to sell both Monthly Magablos and Standalone Magablo articles, and allow the purchaser to choose which they want to purchase.

Monthly Magablos

Monthly Magablos are a compilation of all pay-to-view articles from a particular month.
After purchasing a Monthly Magablo, the purchaser can continue to view these articles without restriction.

Standalone Magablos

Standalone Magablos are single articles with a set price.
After purchasing a Standalone Magablo, the purchaser can continue to view the article without restriction.

*Please note, that purchasing a Magablo for a particular blog only gives the purchaser the ability to view the particular articles they purchased the right to on that particular blog.
For example, users that purchase a Monthly Magablo for January on Blog X, will be able to view all January pay-to-view articles on Blog X, but not Blog Y. Blog Y requires a separate purchase.
