Sometimes our users ask...
Each profile and publication has its own plan — you pay per Atavist URL. Upgrade the account that contains the stories which should have access to the features and tools in that higher tier.
You cannot add people to a profile account — that's just yours. But publications were built for teams. Create a new publication and invite as many members as your plan allows.
Think of it this way: each plan level introduces more complex ways to display, sell, and organize your stories. The second you consider doing more with your work, consider upgrading.
Yes. If you have an existing domain name that you want to use for your stories, URL masking makes it easy.
Sales are processed by Stripe, one of the most secure and powerful ecommerce solutions on the market.
