Suggestion- Donation/Tip/Support button on profiles

Hello guys! I think that a Donation/Tip/Support button on the accounts of sellers and our creative community is a great idea and will definitely be beneficial for all of us. I’ve seen similar stuff done all over the Internet since the Coronavirus, here’s a screenshot I took yesterday while I was listening music on soundcloud: IWsXOa

Here’s just a quick idea on how it can look like:

I think that by this option buyers can Tip sellers even after the “Tip time” has passed, tipping will become easier and some buyers can support sellers if they are a fan of their work. This will only benefit the platform and it will definitely build a stronger community.

Thoughts?

The support system has always sounded too cheesy for me.

Why so? It is not enforced, everybody will be free to donate/tip/support sellers they like. I feel like this is a great option if you’re a fan of someone’s work and want to show some appreciation and support. A lot of different platforms are using it, the design I uploaded looks awful ofc (I did it on Paint :sweat_smile:) but I still think that it’s a good idea, especially with the current situation in mind.

Your suggestion is much appreciated, and the design looks fine.
I just don’t think that the support and tip thing are any different. For a buyer to support their favourite seller on Fiverr, the tip system is already there.

Nope, that’s not the case. The tip system is a pain in the ass, lot of buyers probably can’t find it if they close the original pop-up/tip suggestion after accepting the delivery. You also have to have an order in the first place in order to tip and even if you an order has been completed you cannot tip if you wait a few days after it’s completion. The Tip/Support/Donate button is convenient and it will definitely result in more profit for the sellers and the platform as a whole. It is not enforced, buyers literally just have the option to support creative people and sellers that they appreciate and I’m sure that a lot of them will do so. I support 5+ people that I don’t know just because I enjoy their work/content, this can only benefit the platform.

Why would someone want to tip if they haven’t ordered anything?

I’ve had repeat clients requesting custom offers just to tip me n show support. I don’t understand the “Why would anyone support anyone ever?” logic. If you enjoy the work of someone you should be able to support them. A button like this is convenient and will be a great addition, not sure why the idea is not received well when it’s pretty much everywhere. If this is implemented tipping will become easier in general, buyers can Tip sellers even after the “Tip time” has passed and some buyers can support sellers if they’re a fan of their work. This will only benefit the platform and it will definitely build a stronger community.
