New York Times Fixes Paywall to Balance Free and Paid

New York Times Co. has been working to fix about 200 glitches in the technology for charging online readers of its namesake newspaper, just weeks before the project is scheduled to debut, said a person familiar with the matter.

The company has already repaired more than 500 of the 700 glitches uncovered during tests of the paywall system, said the person, who couldn’t be identified because the testing isn’t public. Among the issues still being addressed are how the system will determine who is required to pay and the point at which various visitors hit the paywall.
