BENGALURU: Twitter has rolled out the Tip Jar feature in India through payment gateway RazorPay. The feature allows users to send and receive money (tips).
“By integrating Razorpay, we are hoping to provide people in India with a simple and secure way to send money as a token of appreciation or as a gift,” Twitter said. Twitter takes no cut.
To begin with, a limited group will see the option to add Tip Jar to their profile. In a blog, Twitter said this group includes creators, journalists, public figures, experts, and community leaders. It is the first of several upcoming ways for creators to monetise their content and earn money from their supporters.
Everyone can send tips to applicable accounts on Twitter for iOS and Android via third-party payment services.
The platform is available in multiple Indian languages.
“Turning on Tip Jar adds an icon next to the follow button on your profile page, allowing you to link to an existing account with the following payment providers: PayPal, Cash App, Patreon, Bandcamp, Venmo, and now, Razorpay. By integrating Razorpay, we are hoping to provide people in India with a simple and secure way to send money as a token of appreciation or as a gift,” Twitter said in its blog.
