A 'buy me a coffee' button for your content

Ko-fi allows you to make extra income from supporters of your content. Create your own button and add it anywhere on the web. Anyone who clicks the link can support you with a coffee. Their small contrubition goes straight into your PayPal account. It's totally free to use.
All you need is a PayPal account. If you don't have a PayPal account, get one here. If possible, it's better to set your paypal account up as a 'business' account. It's free and it allows people without PayPal to pay you.
