Hey Product Hunt 👋 I'm one of the co-founders of Buy Me A Coffee. We started our journey with overwhelming support from this community last year. I can’t thank you enough for helping us find the confidence and momentum to aim for something bigger (and for the golden kitty 😻). We were part of the Y Combinator W19 batch, and raised a small round of funding from some amazing folks like Aaron Levie, Ankur Nagpal, and Kun Gao, who believed in our vision of serving the creators. The simple ‘buy me a coffee’ button was linked from more than 3M pages, thanks to the creators who embedded it on their sites, YouTube, Medium, podcasts, etc. Here's what's new: 1. Recurring payments. Maria Shriver is using BMC to receive one-time and monthly support for her newsletter - https://www.buymeacoffee.com/the... 2. Embeddable widgets. Your audience doesn’t have to leave your site to support you! 3. Instant payouts 4. Zapier integrations (https://building.buymeacoffee.co...) 5. iOS App. Currently invite-only. Thank you again for this community. We wouldn’t be here without you!

I've been using Buy Me A Coffee for three months now and I've received $170 from supporters of my No CS Degree blog and job board for developers without degrees. This really helped me and encouraged me so anyone making an indie product should get a page! I like that there is an option for Stripe as well as PayPal and the UI is gorgeous. No complaints! www.buymeacoffee.com/nocsdegree

@shivraj_rath man that's awesome :) our next sprint is focused on improving the 'feedback' aspect and making it more meaningful for both sides - stay tuned!

Hey Jijo, Nice initiative! Love the UI and the mission behind it. Would you mind if I asked what's your perspective on BMAC vs Patreon? Would love to hear from your perspective! Karming!

@karming_chin Hey Karming - BMC lets you accept one-time and monthly support while Patreon is focused on memberships. More than 80% of our payments are one-time. Our goal is to make supporting creators as fun and frictionless as possible. You'll notice features like showcasing supporters and their comments. We also do not ask visitors to sign up to support a creator, which removes half the friction. Hope this answered your q :)

@jijosunny Thanks for the clarifying! Wish the best and looking forward to what's next :)

Really enjoying this platform. Thanks for giving creators more options for gathering support! One request I have is for a richer post editor. A simple textbox for entering quick updates is fine, but I'd love to see a WYSIWYG / Markdown editor for writing longer-form blog posts. I see you can sort by "posts" at the bottom of a page, this is a good first start to having a blog section to share more in-depth details about things. Thanks again for all your hard work! :^)

In China, all platforms provide a way for users to pay for creator. So, if instagram, medium and twitter etc all provide the function. How to compete with them?

@jensen_chen We'd love to see those platforms implement inbuilt monetization features. Except for Youtube's weak attempt, I don't think I've seen any successful implementation of direct monetization. I don't worry about the competition though - it's a big enough market, and if more people are supporting the creators, ultimately it's a win for us :)

I love Buy Me A Coffee 2.0 ☕️😍 🎉 Such an easy and seamless way to get paid for your content. BMaC has been the #1 channel for folks to support the work I do for free at Frauvis. I've received $108 from folks of all backgrounds! With these coffee buys, I've been able to pay for basic living essentials such as buying a few groceries, paying for my light bill, soap etc ❤️. Can't wait to use the new zapier feature and new iOS app! https://www.buymeacoffee.com/nam...
