The Flattr relaunch: What to expect!

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 12:00:50 GMT

*The release is finally happening! On October 24th, we will launch the new version of Flattr for the public. Here is a guide to the new Flattr, for creators, publishers, and contributors. *

Time to brace yourself, this is it. The evolution that aims to become a revolution. We have worked long and hard on relaunching Flattr as a product that has the potential to evolve the internet in just the way we wanted when we first launched Flattr. Our mission has always been the same: We believe creators need and deserve money, but on their own terms.

Our new fee structure

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 09:55:00 GMT

We are changing our fees and we want to do it in the most transparent way. We have split the fee in two: Creators that receive money will be charged a monthly fee of 7.5%. This is our fee for running Flattr. Plus, to start, a payment processing fee of 9%. This is our costs for the payment processing that is carried over to everyone that receives money. This will increase the fee of 10% we had prior to 2016* We would like to explain the reasons for this increase.

Network effect: Flattrs without known receiver

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 11:59:00 GMT

How the Flattr network effect works, and answers the big question “will people actually pay for content online?”

One of the core problems with Flattr has always been to prove to creators and publishers that people do want support their creations with money. We can claim that is the truth as much as we want, but in the end it’s still just a sales pitch for our product. We needed a way to actually prove it, and now we can.

The Story about the new Flattr – The Flattr enabled list

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 12:00:00 GMT

Today it’s time for another of our core values when it comes to product design: user control. More specifically, control of what gets flattred. User control is very important to us, so we had to approach it in a serious way. Giving control in a product that is supposed to be automatic is not an easy task. It’s about you trusting the product, but still being able to change how it behaves. Simply put, you should control what sites to use Flattr on.

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 15:55:52 GMT

Thanks to the open source community making new ad filters, plus an update to ABP for Chrome and Opera, you can block ads on Facebook again … for now.
