What is Buy Me A Coffee?

Buy Me A Coffee is a friendly way for creators to receive one-time and monthly support from their audience.

Most creators share their Buy Me A Coffee link on their social pages and websites to receive tips. Creators are often surprised by the positive response and support they receive.

We recently introduced the Monthly Subscriptions feature, allowing you to receive recurring support without any additional setup.

How do I get paid?

You can connect your PayPal and Stripe to receive payments.

During the sign up process, you will be asked to enter your PayPal and Stripe details. If you missed that step, you can do this from your settings page any time. All payments are instantly transferred to the connected accounts. Unlike other platforms, we do not hold your balance, and there is no minimum threshold. As for payments, anyone can buy you a coffee using PayPal, Credit Card, Apple Pay, Google Pay and other local payment methods.

Buy Me A Coffee is a verified partner of PayPal and Stripe.

Is there an actual coffee included?

Nope, sadly. Coffee is just a metaphor creators use to get support. Each coffee represents an amount, and it is up to you how to spend it.

Is there a fee to using Buy Me A Coffee?

There is no monthly fee, and all features are available to everyone. Creators are paid 95% of the amount after a 5% platform fee (a creator earning $50 will keep $47.5). Payment processing fees charged by PayPal and Stripe are also applicable.

This plugin doesn't follow WordPress guidelines of code ethics. It might break your website.
Shame. This looked like an ideal plugin. But it doesn't accept payments. I have both Stripe and PayPal accounts. I attempted to connect them both, but when I tried a test payment, both options fail. I worked through a number of changes, nothing worked and there is no support 🙁 Good luck getting it to work, I hope you have more success
I had trouble adding a payment method signing up, but you can't get support unless you add a payment method. So I couldn't get support unless I added a payment method and I couldn't add a payment method because it was broken for some reason. Can you say Catch 22? I eventually got it working, but no thanks to them.
