Which Tip Jar Is Right for You?

More and more content creators like you are taking advantage of their social media to monetize their content and connect with their audience. Placing a tip jar within your social profile, in addition to the social media platforms’ native tipping features for creators, increases the likelihood of getting paid by followers who value your creative process and want to support you directly.

There are four different tip jar options that you can choose from to help you crowdfund for your latest projects and efforts. We’ll explain each Koji in detail below, including how to use each one and who they’re best for.

What Is A Koji?

A Koji is a type of interactive media that can help you sell your products, downloads, services or premium content. To create a Koji, simply select a template and customize before sharing the unique URL on Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, WhatsApp, or anywhere else!

Tip Jar+

Tip Jar + is the remastered version of the original Tip Jar Koji that offers a streamlined process for fans to enjoy. You can take advantage of the Koji by uploading full-screen content for your tip jar and personalizing thank you notes for fans who donate. With Tip Jar +, you also have the option to add exclusive content (images, videos, and downloadable files) that your followers can unlock for a discounted price after making a donation inside the Koji.

Gift Me

With Gift Me, your followers show support by sending you emoji-based gift tokens as donations. You can customize the gift types and amounts by selecting an emoji and the gift amount in the Koji directly from your social profiles. Fans can send as many gifts as they want along with a note that you can see directly from the creator dashboard.

Fund My Project allows you to crowdfund projects and other efforts directly from your social profiles. You can set a monetary goal, give background information on your project, and then publish the Koji to your profile, where it’s instantly available from any social media platform. You also have the option to collect shipping information from your fans to send rewards once your project is fully funded. 

Love Jar

Transaction fee: 5%

Best for: Creators who want to encourage donations without pressure or solicitation.

Love Jar is a Koji that lets you accept donations and private messages from followers and fans in a fun and organic way. Anyone who donates to your love jar can choose the amount to contribute with the slider and write a message that only you can view. As the Koji owner, you’ll have access to all the love notes that your followers have sent you.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, there are many creative ways to engage your fans to leave tips! Every creator is different, so we encourage you to experiment and find the type of tips that work best for your own fans. And remember, the tips you collect on Koji are not subject to the often significant cuts the big social media or Koji platforms take, so more money arrives where it should – in your hands.
