Extra Extra! Presenting the newest BMC feature: Extras

We’ve been grinding and listening, making small and big changes along the way. You may have seen it already but this time, we’re officially announcing Extras, the newest, shiniest feature of Buy Me a Coffee :sparkles:

So what are Extras?
In addition to the support you’re getting from your fans and/or your monthly/annual memberships, Extras lets creators like you give your audience flexible and creative ways of connecting. Want to flex your skills or what you’re passionate about? Turn it into an Extra! Here are some Extras that you can offer:

  • One-on-one consultations/meetings
  • Art Commissions
  • Ebooks
  • Exclusive videos
  • Zoom backgrounds
  • Maybe even Zoom cameos?
  • Invites to Whatsapp, Telegram, Viber or Discord groups
  • Social media mentions
  • Newsletter shout outs
  • Dedicated blog posts or sponsored content
  • Literally anything you can think of

You can read more about it here, which also includes the how-to’s. As @jijo said, Extras are really what you make of it. We’re excited to see what you come up with so share them below once you have–we can’t wait to see and share them as well!

P.S. If you’ve got tips, comments, recommendations, etc.–just holler!

Can y’all make a detailed tutorial video about this aspect?
How to set it up… How users will access it… Who can access it? (Members only, or anyone)

To get an idea of how users access and buy Extras you may have a look at the pages of creators who set them up, a few examples are linked here. Anyone can buy Extras, not just members but also one-time contributors.

Hey @Isabelle_Peterson, a video is in the works! It’s real easy to set up, and you can check out the use cases with detailed steps on how to set up. Extras will be available for anyone who visits your page, so they can either just get Extras, buy you coffee or get a membership. Best case scenario: they get all!
