  • But the world isBlack & White
  • Who am I?• Pelle Wessman• Malmö, Sweden• Front end developer, Flattr• Drupal freelancer, formerly fulltime at Good Old for 3 years
  • Black & White• Money transactions online are complex and expensive• A limited amount of things are worth that effort• A wide gap between things that get money and those who don’t
  • The tail is missing• Donations has become easier through services like Kickstarter• Treshold still too high - the long tail of smaller donations is missing• Forcing people to pay money is like an aspirin - makes it a bit better, but doesn’t cure anything
  • Micropayments vs. App Store• Micro-donations is another way to ”pay it forward”. App Stores are anti-collaborative.• Micro-donations focuses on creations and ideas. App Stores focuses on prices.• App Stores stifles exploration - Micro- donations encourages it• ”Getting paid” !== receiving money
  • A social micro-payment system
  • It’s microSmall transactions, mostly below €1
  • It’s easyOne click donations
  • It’s safeFixed monthly total - like a cake
  • It’s cheapNo fixed fees
  • It’s sustainableSubscriptions repeats a click every month
  • It’s curationRanks things by what people are willing to support
  • It’s p2p All users are the same.Everyone can give - Everyone can receive
  • It’s openDropped our give-to-get requirement this month
  • It’s evolvingSoon: Flattr all Twitter users
  • The impact• Enables all things, no matter how small, to get money - no longer any gap• Makes it possible for people to support the things they like without having to think in terms of money• Driving the long tail of donations enabling more people to receive more money• (Flattr also does fixed fee donations €2-50)
