Tipping: A Fun Way to Say ‘Thanks’

Just in time for the holidays and the season of giving, we’re excited to announce our Tapas tipping feature on iOS and Android.

We’re home to over 19,000 creators and millions of readers, so we’re constantly trying to figure out new ways to empower both fans and creators on Tapas. With tipping, fans will be able to support their favorite creators with coins purchased in the app’s Coin Shop or earned for free watching video-ads.

Tipping is simple, easy, and fun:

Tap “Tip Creator”… choose your tip amount… fire away!

We’re starting out with a handful of creators (Mikochi, The Kao, and Samantha Davis, to name a few), but will be expanding the tipping feature to more and more of your favorite creators every single day.

We hope that tipping combined with the ability to earn free coins by watching video ads allows everyone who wants to help out a chance to contribute.

As an added perk, the top three tippers for each creator are featured prominently on the tipping screen, with the rest ranked on a leaderboard:

Climb that ladder, Catface.

Happy holidays,

-Michael and the Tapas Staff
