Help Support for the offline world and direct paymentsFiled under: Events;
The guys from Flattr have introduced two new features on her blog, which I think is remarkable. Firstly, can help Support through mobile applications moving into the “offline life” hold, on the other are finally direct donations to a Flattr account possible. So you can now leave regardless of the number of get over the month collected Flatt-clicks a popular projects funds.
Street performers, whether curb painters, musicians and comedians are all on her hat so that passersby can throw a few euros if you like. Flattr is, after all nothing else. If you like you can “flattrn” something on the Internet and let the producers of the content to get something. Of course the idea is brilliant for artists who are no longer on the production of their work on site.
Flattr now enters into competition with the hat. Flattr with mobile apps for iPhone, Android and Co., and QR codes can help Support artists, creatives, but perhaps also cultural organizations generate revenue. On the left you will find the QR code to Flattr4Android. With this application you can help Support for a scan code, on the other hand, developers can build with it the possibility to donate via help Support for the application.
Generally I think the idea of class and the possibilities are virtually unlimited. I imagine just once a church that wants to renovate their organ. Local to find publishers, the ads in magazines or newspapers cost is a feasible task. But how can it be that the reader now donate? Readers will remember the 0815-or really the bank is passing on the spot? Sure, we only technology suitable for the time being friends will have cell phones and help Support. But the system needs Flattr mass to function. Well, if there are other possible uses.
The second innovation
The possibility of a fixed amount to a Flattr account is to donate anonymously. The amount must be between 2 and 50 euros to be big and as fees are incurred only 20 cents. No matter how large the donation! Thus lowers its Flattr with 10% fairly high fees, at least for these large payments from clear.
Hopefully just that Flattr permits in the near future cash receipts or payments via IBAN. The transfer of funds to Moneybookers Flattr Although falling 50 cents to a maximum of fees, but the transfer can be to a bank account in Moneybookers with 1.80 € per transfer pay quite handsomely. Paypal Paypal balance transfers at no cost to the bank account, it arrived at the fees to be significantly stronger. Inflows through direct one could at last – at least here in Europe – the middlemen Paypal or Moneybookers completely from the race and leave without large fees to get popular projects funds.
