Why can’t I price an article at 29 cents?

Last Updated On September 25, 2019

When a platform tries to publish an article with a price of 0.29, the price becomes 0.28 for readers.

Since WordPress is written using PHP as the scripting language, there is a bug in PHP that produces a strange result when plugging in this exact number (0.29). Our technical capabilities are limited to WordPress’ infrastructure, and hence we are still finding a way to solve this issue.
