    Pros: 

    Super easy to use, quick to setup, goal setting, bitcoin support coming!

    Cons: 

    None so far.

    As a content creator on youtube/social media - I think this is a crazy easy way to engage with your audience in a creative way that is a little less like asking for a handout. Really great alternative to patreon as this is a 1 time donation

    Pros: 

    Super easy to setup and get the page running

    Cons: 

    none so far

    Just created my BMC page : https://www.buymeacoffee.com/phpbits and it's working perfectly in no time. Also got my first cup and really happy with it :) Planning on using this page as my donation option for my free WordPress plugins on the directory and hopefully this will lead to more donations. Thanks!

@joseph_sunny This looks great and is waaaay better than slapping a Paypal button, I agree. But isn’t Stripe limited to few countries?

Joseph SunnyMaker@joseph_sunny · Maker
@shyjal Thanks! You're right, Stripe is only available in 25 countries right now (https://stripe.com/global). Creators from other countries can select Paypal for payout. In fact, 75% of our users prefer Paypal :)

@joseph_sunny I have chosen paypal but the user can still only pay by credit card?

@joseph_sunny Hi there! I love the simplicity of the service, I signed up immediately. https://www.buymeacoffee.com/Xyh...

It's like an About.me for donations. Cool idea. I imagine an embeddable version of this could be useful for creators to host on their blog, website, etc. How are people using it so far, @joseph_sunny?

Joseph SunnyMaker@joseph_sunny · Maker
Thanks @rrhoover! People are using it in ways we never imagined. One such is called LittleHandsBigHearts, a small group of people passionate about helping those less fortunate than ourselves on the Island of Bali ️❤️: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/v4J.... They raised $250 within 2 weeks 🎉 We're waiving any platform fee for all charities. Embeddable buttons – users can generate one from their dashboard (HTML or Image) or use the official WP plugin.

@joseph_sunny haven't had luck with the WP Plugin. Got a header error on one site and I figured it was a conflict with the theme, so I tried it on another but just get a blank screen on that one when I try to connect my account.

Joseph SunnyMaker@joseph_sunny · Maker
@dontheideaguy Sorry for the trouble, Don. We are aware of the occasional plugin conflicts. Pushing an update first thing tomorrow to fix this. Meanwhile, please generate the button from your BuyMeACoffee dashboard. UPDATE: We've just pushed an update after crushing all those bugs: https://wordpress.org/plugins/bu...

Wow, this tool — and the domain name — is such a great idea! Now we can just implement this instead of doing it with crappy Javascript and PayPal API. It's beautifully executed and well designed. Congrats to the makers! :) Here is my profile: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/julien 🎉 PS: I found some bugs with emojis (they disappear when the page refresh) ; and more social/currencies options would be much appreciated! ^^

Joseph SunnyMaker@joseph_sunny · Maker
@juliens_me Thanks, Julien; your comment made our day! 🎉 Emoji appearance issues – we introduced emojis just this week and might have some loose ends that we have to take a look. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We're on it. 💯

@juliens_me @joseph_sunny can I second more currency options? It would be great to list mine in £ as I'm in the UK. But also be cool if people can switch between £3/$3/€3.
963439
Joseph SunnyMaker@joseph_sunny · Maker
@cyberneticdave Thanks for the suggestion, David. It was deliberate not to offer multiple currency support. We believe having a unified payment flow will go a long way in improving conversions. Higher conversions = happy creators :) However, we're currently looking into paying creators in their currencies, which will solve half the problem (+ a lot more payment options like Apple Pay, Android Pay, Bitcoin, etc.)

David Lumm@cyberneticdave · Software Developer
@joseph_sunny Oh, I agree! Showing multiple choices to end users would make for a bad UX. I was thinking it would be cool if I could choose which currency my page is displayed in as part of the configuration. I'm assuming that most of my traffic will come from the UK and could be put off thinking that they will be charged a conversion fee by their bank (which may or may not be the case, but people will make snap judgements based on what they see). I'll see what happens with the dollar sign there :-)

This is brilliant. Almost like a 'Patreon lite'

Joseph SunnyMaker@joseph_sunny · Maker
@kopahkah Haha, we should use that in our copy. We often see creators using BuyMeACoffee alongside Patreon to fulfill the one-time donation needs.

@kopahkah @joseph_sunny Smart use... maybe we should do that with @gethorizonapp (http://patreon.com/horizonapp)

Joseph SunnyMaker@joseph_sunny · Maker
@kopahkah @drewmeyers Awesome! 🎉 I had a quick look at your Patreon. Hope you have similar success with BuyMeACoffee :) BTW BuyMeACoffee.com/horizon is available 👌 P.S platform fee associated with your account has been waived; and glad to be the first one to contribute.
