Allows your YouTube audience to make one-time donations to your videos without ever leaving the page.
What is Tipp? Well here's something: People already watch your videos. Some of those people decide they really like one in particular, but the most they can do for you is just a click of the Like button. Why can't there be an opportunity to give more than just internet points? Introducing Tipp, the Chrome extension that benefits all content creators by enabling direct-from-audience donations without the viewer ever having to leave the video page. Below are 3 reasons why you should install Tipp and create an account today: 1) Powered by the Stripe payment platform, Tipp enables the crowdsourcing of supplemental income from those who appreciate your content the most, but who don't necessarily want to commit to a recurring donation model like Patreon. Whether a contribution is $1 or $100, every bit matters from your audience- especially if you're a smaller channel struggling to meet the new watch-hour requirements for video monetization. 2) After creating an account, Tipp users will see a donation button on all video pages of channels whose owners have taken the additional step of connecting said channels, as well as a Stripe account, to their Tipp account. In order to enable donations on your own videos, simply log in with the extension and click the appropriate connect buttons within the Tipp dashboard, and you'll be taken through a quick setup. 3) Have you ever watched a video and caught yourself feeling a sense of respect for the work that went into making it? You might click the Like button, you might leave a comment, but in the end, it's always on to the next one. Instead of watching this happen to you, let Tipp encourage that momentary sense of wanting to give to your work by providing an opportunity to contribute something more. ---------------- RELEASE LOG ---------------- **0.1.4** -All future connected Stripe accounts will be Standard accounts, due to the excessive fees imposed by Stripe on Express accounts. The implications of this will be unnoticeable to those who do not plan on accepting donations themselves. -For those who do plan on doing so, or who currently do so: On one hand, creating a Stripe account will be just a bit less smooth due to more information being required by Stripe upon sign up. On the other hand, however, the fee that Tipp takes out to cover the high Stripe fees can now be lowered, which means more of the donation gets to your pocket. **0.1.3** -Added support for the new YouTube layout! **0.1.2** -Removed some debug settings that made it to production. **0.1.1** -Various bug fixes and improvements. **0.1.0** -Initial release! ---------------- IMPORTANT THINGS ---------------- (!) In order to match the fees and per-account expenses Stripe charges Tipp for using their payment platform, a small fee (2%) is taken from every transfer. This is more than I would like, but until Stripe offers alternate pricing options, it is the best I can do. (!) As I am just a college student working on this project whenever I get a chance, if you would like to help out, and you've already downloaded Tipp yourself, let your favorite YouTube channels know that they should download it, too! This can be easily accomplished by going to one of their videos, clicking the Tipp button, and then clicking the 'Leave a comment' button (the typing is already done for you). **Special thanks** to LogoMakr for the branding icons, to Heroku for the PaaS, to Stripe for the sweet documentation, and to Cloudflare for everything else. @2017-2018 Tipp, All rights reserved.
