    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!

    Easy to setup, simple idea and design

    Cons: 

    None so far

    I ran across BMC as I was looking for apps/products for developers, it wasn't exactly what I was looking for but it grabbed my attention when I saw it. It is a nice (and super simple) way for artists/makers to get the support from anyone.

    Pros: 

    Super easy to setup - Light and friendly tone

    Cons: 

    Not enough payment options

    Sometimes the button disappears from my footer when I install a new plugin. Got to recreate it and it replaces itself automatically. Apart from that, it works perfect, got my first coffee after a week, feels great to be supported, not even much for the cash but more for moral support! Great work.

  • Pros: 

    Good opportunity

    Cons: 

    1. Long check 2. Tech support can respond long or not respond

    It took me about 1,5 month to get my money finally. There was a check of my funding source, and it took too long for such a procedure, I sended some emails with no responds. But I get my funds finally and I thank support team!

    Pros: 

    Easy to set up. Connects with Stripe

    Cons: 

    Can't get paid. No answers from support

    Although the bulk of donations have been paid out, there is a balance of $90 that is constantly pending. A portion of that has been on hold since September 2018. Support was not helpful and has stopped responding to my queries. I would not recommend this service. My only choice is to encourage my patrons to take it up with their credit card companies.

  • Pros: 

    Easy setup Good concept

    Cons: 

    Payouts are not working Support team is not answering

    First I was really excited of buymeacoffee but unfortunately, now it seems it's a scam. I am unable to create account at Stripe, so I had to use Payoneer alternative and connection between buymecoffee and Payoneer is without a problem. There is minimum 25$ treshold to payout and I wanted to test how much Payoneer will take additional fees so lucky me, I tried to make a payout with 30$ balance. After you request payout, system writes you that it can take up to 7 working days but today it is 6 weeks I requested it and still nothing happened. I also wrote to support but only answer I get is autogenerated about "support is busy and will answer you later" but not sure if there is anyone doing support at all anymore. Lucky me, I tested it with only 30$ and not higher balance but how it looks, I will not be able to withdraw money from them, so will have to look for alternative.

    Pros: 

    The vibe that BuyMeACoffee creates.

    Cons: 

    Not any.

    A minimal, funky donation system must be every artist's dream. Operates very well too.

    Pros: 

    Simple, clean app

    Cons: 

    Don't see any

    I love simple apps that have a direct clean approach to one product, task or function.

  • Pros: 

    - easy to navigate and set up pages

    Cons: 

    - Didn't receive payout - Terrible service and unresponsive help - a lack of payment options

    Not to be mistaken with 'Buy me a Ko-fi'.

    I was actually invited to join this site by 'Kate', one of the suppose 'team' whom I assume was making the sounds looking for suckers.

    When I first created my account I was pleased, I was able to withdraw a payout and was delighted.

    The next time I tried to withdraw, however, once they 'implemented' the use of Stripe instead of allowing a direct transfer into PayPal, I was presented with an message on my page informing me that there was a delay and that if there was a technical error then someone from the team would contact me.
    I waited and checked with my bank and there was no problem on my end, so I contacted the team. I waited for some time and received a generic response requesting my Buy Me A Coffee account details, naturally I obliged expecting some answers.
    I waited.
    And waited.
    And am still waiting.

    I even emailed 'Kate', the person supposedly dealing with my problem, again and still have received no response to a problem dating from January 2019.
    I'm still waiting.
    I have since deleted my account and lost the funds. It's obvious to me that there people are unprofessional and have a terrible work ethic with no regard or respect for those using their site. I am still living in some meagre hope that I will receive some kind of explanation, but I doubt
    there will ever be one.

    I have warned everyone I know about this site and advised them not to bother, but to go with the safer 'Ko-fi' instead. I have no idea how they've gotten such good reviews when they don't bother answering a simple email inquiry, although I expect they're more attentive to people who receive more patronage and don't bother with the troubles of small timers.
    Do not use this site.

  • Pros: 

    Payouts with stripe worked great.

    Cons: 

    Payoneer didn't work for me. Customer support for the last 3 months has been non-existent.

    Buymeacoffee worked great with paypal and when they got dropped by paypal and switched to Stripe and Payoneer, Stripe worked good. However, I had a balance when switched for paypal to stripe. I was told Stripe does not allow balances to be paid out, only immediate transfers when coffees are purchased. Was told to switch to Payoneer to get a balance paid out, which didn't work. That was almost 4 months ago. There is no way on the website to switch back to Stripe once you've added Payoneer. So I am stuck, they are holding my money and have no way to get it. There customer service does not respond. It seems more and more like a scam every day.

  • Pros: 

    Easy to use, easy for ppl to donate in short timw

    Cons: 

    My payouts have been frozen for months and email support is absolutely horrific.

    Emailed 4 times in 3 months for a payout that was "delayed" by 4 months. I finally got it and thought it was just a blip but now my balance is frozen again sigh/ Looking for alternatives
