Clickshare Try It Page

Internet users are tired of remembering multiple registration IDs and passwords as they move among their favorite World Wide Web sites. And many would like to be able to purchase information by the click, without having to enter their credit card numbers each time or sign up for multiple subscriptions.

The Clickshare Access and Payment Service enables multi-site user authentication, microtransaction billing and settlement, and cross-site access measurement. Here's a one-page description of Clickshare.
