Yeah! I Received My 10th Medium Tip

  • 4 min read

This new tipping feature is awesome. Make sure to activate it and take part in the Medium survey.

I was going through the settings of my account when I found a new feature.

A tipping feature.

Of course, I had to try it and write about it.

In fact, I was one of the first to share the awesome news:

Medium introduced a new tipping feature in beta!☕

Additionally, I was prepared too.

For months now, I've been writing about the power of virtual coffee shops like Ko-Fi and Buy Me A Coffee.

Why am I a supporter of coffee shops for creators?

Because my hubby and part-time YouTuber and online course instructor Patrick God receive several virtual coffees per day.☕☕☕

On YouTube, he provides most of his programming content for free.

His followers and fans thank him for his valuable tutorials with a nice tip.

For me, it was pretty easy to activate the tipping feature because I already had opened a Ko-fi shop in January this year thanks to my hubby who recommended it to me.

Here’s how to activate your tipping feature:

  • Go to Settings
  • Audience Development
  • Tipping
  • Click Manage Settings

Now you can set your tipping to connect with Ko-fi, Patreon, PayPal, or another site.

My recommendation is to open a Ko-fi shop and receive coffees because Ko-fi does not take a fee.

Guess what?

Within a few hours after publishing my story about the tipping feature, I already received my first coffee.☕

Fast forward to today, I’ve already received 10 coffees since I activated the Medium feature.

What’s even better is the beautiful feedback that really warms my writer’s heart:

Overall, I’ve received 34 coffees so far

Since I set up my account in January 2022, I‘ve received 34 coffees.

This is $170.

Side note: I don’t share this to brag. I share this to show you what’s possible with a coffee shop.

Make sure to take part in Medium’s short survey

Our new CEO Tony Stubblebine is definitely listening.

I see him commenting on almost every story about Medium’s latest and upcoming changes.

So once you’ve activated the tipping feature, check your emails and make sure to take part in the survey by Medium’s Research team.

Here’s the email you’ll receive:

I especially love the idea that Medium will donate $5 per response to one of several non-profits.

I believe that true fans and writers want to support each other.

Will you be one of the first Medium supporters to try this feature and warm my heart?

If so…

here’s my special gift for supporting my work:

I’ll feature and promote every (!) Illumination reader supporter.

Many thanks in advance.

Yes. You can’t hear this accent when you’re reading my stories. haha. God is from Germany. haha
