I logged into manning.com today and noticed that you can buy "tokens". What are tokens you ask?

Manning is doing microtransactions. You can buy tiny pieces of a book.

I just saw that today.  Tokens cost 1ยข each, and depending on the size of the content you want to reveal, it could be only a few tokens or several tens (or maybe hundreds) of tokens.

My link to "what are tokens"
on
https://www.manning.com/dashboard
just goes
https://www.manning.com/token
and does not provide an answer on "what are tokens".

The token ledger of "0" does not reflect the '500' in my profile???

Is this the same for you?
 
I'm doing laundry! Look how clean this tiny ad is:
