BuyMeACoffee is a platform for creators to set up a support page so that their supporters can buy them coffees in the form of $3/$4/$5 donations.
We offer Paypal and Stripe as payout options. Creators from Stripe-supported countries (US, UK, Canada and 22 others) are eligible to receive instant payouts without any minimum threshold. Payout via Paypal is available for creators all over the world and is paid when the support amount reaches a minimum threshold of $10.
Nope, sadly. Coffee is just a metaphor creators use to get support. Each coffee represents a $3/$4/$5 donation, and it is up to you how to spend it.
BuyMeACoffee does not charge a monthly fee, and only make money when the creator is making money. BMC takes 5% platform fee every time a supporter buys you a coffee. So when a creator receives $100 from supporters, BMC will earn a $5 platform fee.
We are partnered with Paypal and Stripe to process payments, and they charge some cents per successful payment.
Note: We’re waiving platform fee for all early users, making BuyMeACoffee 100% free to use.
None, Ever. BuyMeACoffee is open to creators of all sizes, and there is no minimum requirement to set up a page and start receiving support.
