“Rolling out next month, this platform will allow media publishers to charge users on a per article basis with one click.

This enables users who would not sign up for a monthly subscription to pay a higher per article price for when they want to read an occasional article. Should be a major win-win for both media orgs & the public,” Musk tweeted.

The announcements received appreciation from Netizens. Giving consumers the choice to pay per item rather than committing to a complete membership, according to a user, will surely draw in a larger readership and assist media organisations by bringing in more money.

Another tweeted, “Excellent decision. I loved to read but subscribing to more than multiples agents feels overwhelming. Pay for click would solve this and generates new followers and repeat purchases…”
