We are implementing donations (tips) via Web Monetization on Kult and we could use some help 😁

If someone already did something like this and wants to share some thoughts, please don’t be shy πŸ™ˆπŸ™πŸ½

Thank’s in advance and have a good week πŸ₯°

For tippings in Web Monetization you'll probably want to wait for Rafiki. This will include more features to Interledger protocol that includes tipping and dedicated subscription.

@laka any thoughts here? I agree with @radhyr about Rafiki. Might want to have someone join the calls/forums working on Rafiki.

Donations/Tips would be something Rafiki Phase 3 enables via Mandates. Phase 3 is being scoped now, with the hopes that it will be completed by the end of the year.

The caveat is that Rafiki is supposed to be run by wallet providers / Monetization Providers. So wether the monetization providers enable that functionality or when they enable it is totally up to them. In the current ecosystem, enabling donations / tipping is something Coil would have to do, or another Web Monetization provider if they existed. I think @uchibeke has a better idea on a timeline for when Coil will support donations / tips.

Would be great if Coil support tippings in the future πŸŽ‰
