Notes :
  • This component uses AccessType Js internally
  • It uses the Access API from subtype for metering, the API works on firebase which uses thinmint cookie (set by qlitics) of the user to verify and keep track of visits
  • This component supports Razorpay, Stripe, PayPal and Omise payment options for now
  • It communicates to sketches where routes are in pattern /api/access/v1/*
  • Metered story has a pingback which is achieved by the use of navigator.sendBeacon if available or falls back to fetch, this is needed to update the count of the visited stories for a user
  • Access to story/asset is saved on the redux store under the keyword access which holds keys as story asset id and the access returned from the API as its value
  • subscriptions is the key in the store under which all the subscription groups created for the specified account are maintained
  • paymentOptions is the key under the store which has all the payment options created for the current AT account
