+There are a large number of "paywall" websites on the Web that require a
+customer to register before they may use the website. In many cases, if the
+site isn't regularly visited by the customer, they abandon the transaction
+when they see the paywall requirement. Providing a mechanism to sell an
+inexpensive item to a customer without requiring registration would be of
+great benefit to not only the merchants selling goods and services, but
+customers that would like to avoid lengthy registration processes.
