About Ko-fi

What is Ko-fi?

Ko-fi lets creators receive small donations from fans of their content. Anyone can create Ko-fi profile and share their personal Ko-fi link or embed a Ko-fi button on their site.

Each donation is roughly equal to the price of a coffee. We chose coffee as a friendly metaphor for showing support, but the money goes directly to the creator and they can spend it however they wish. You can think of Ko-fi as a digital tip-jar.

It's all free to use. All you need is a PayPal account to receive or send payments. We don't take any cut or get in the middle of the transaction, but note that PayPal may charge a small fee.

Who Uses Ko-fi?

More than one million dollars has been sent to all kinds of independent creators. Anyone who would like to receive support from their followers can set up a 'Creator' account. Anyone who wishes to show support can set up a 'Supporter' account.
