Looking to make extra income from your blog by selling your knowledge, articles, your own products, or plr (private label rights) items like e-books or software? You can do all that by charging your visitors for accessing your special blog posts and product pages with this free WordPress plugin I’m sharing with you today.
LockPress is a free WordPress plugin, created by a small company called Two Enough that lets you “lock” certain areas of your blog like posts and pages, and charge users for access to those areas. Here’s a short introduction from the LockPress product page:
Free WordPress plugin to charge your visitors for accessing blog posts and pages. With LockPress you can easily earn side income by selling articles, your knowledge, your own products or MRR/PLR items (ebooks, software, etc) and even run a membership site. The possibilities are endless. You will get the payments directly to your PayPal account and you can set the flat or recurring fee items.

LockPress is a useful plugin if you want to earn extra income from your blog by selling some of your “special” articles or some products from your blog. Unlike most plugins that offer the same type of features, LockPress is FREE and lets you receive payments conveniently via PayPal.
From what I’ve read from the product page and manual, LockPress is pretty easy to setup and configure, the process usually takes less than 5 minutes. All you need to do is download the plugin, upload it to your wp-content/plugins folder, activate the plugin from your WordPress dashboard. To activate LockPress, you’ll have to fill out a form from the Two Enough site. Once you’re done with it, you will receive an activation code on your email address, use that code to activate the plugin.
For further details on how lock a post/page or how to customize your install, visit the LockPress manual page.
I haven’t tried LockPress myself because I don’t have any products to sell yet but it might come in handy one of these days so I’m keeping it for future use.
