    Hey everyone,

    I’ve been working on Tippy – a product to support creators by tipping through Twitter. I released it around a month ago after building for two months on the side of my day-job.

    Main website: https://tippy.money

    Skip the marketing website: https://app.tippy.money

    • Send tips

    Sent through replies using both Twitter and Stripe API’s. Successful transactions are stored on the backend and visualised through the web-app.

    • Future transactions

    A ‘future’ transaction is stored when a supporter tips a creator not yet on Tippy. They receive a mention telling them they’ve been tipped and to sign up to claim it. These expire after three days and are processed on intervals through a cron job.

    • Private tips

    Send amounts privately by hiding the amount sent through hashtags. These are defined through the web-app.

    How does this differ from Twitter Tips?

    • On-platform: supporting others in context

    • Card-first: most third-party services used by Twitter are country specific, limiting cross-border support

    • Cross-platform roadmap: I’m building for other platforms such as Discord, anything with a mention system could be an option.

    Happy to answer any questions, and welcome all feedback
