recent updates to tipjoy: tip amount now customizable
The old way: a click on a tip button was always 10¢ unless the user went to their settings and changed it to another amount.
The new way: people creating new Tipjoy buttons can set the amount they want the click to be worth. The user-defined default setting has been removed.
We did this in response to the large demand from site owners to change the amount they receive from each person. Many, many users wanted to ask for more money. Meanwhile only a very small number of active users changed their default tip value setting.
All buttons made using the old system will not change. They will continue to be 10¢ per tip click.
New sites can choose to change the amount to anything less than $25 and at least a penny. The amount will be displayed in the widget, right by the button.
Furthermore, all Tipjoy buttons on Tipjoy.com are now set to 25¢, up from the previous default of 10¢.
As always, let us know what you think.
