    We're obsessed with analytics

    You can't improve what you can't track. Every feature of Passes was designed to help you track which content gets the best engagement and generates the most revenue.

    Our analytics dashboard shows you the earnings of every post, message, call, and livestream shared.

    Fanfix's earnings focus on subscriber count, post count, and message count. To see your net and gross earnings, creators need to check their connected Stripe or bank accounts.

    We know how to build huge companies

    Our founder and CEO is Lucy Guo. At 21 years old, she started Scale AI that is now worth more than $7.3 billion and has more than 800 employees. She is now the only female founder and CEO of a paywall platform.

    If you're going to rely on a platform for your primary source of income, wouldn't you want to bet on the team with a track record of successful tech companies?
