Hey Product Hunt! πŸ‘‹ We're super excited to introduce Coffeelinks –– it's like Bit.ly for payments πŸŽ‰Imagine if you want to share a Dropbox file, eBook or an unlisted video with your audience. You can enter that link, set a price and generate a Coffeelink. As simple as that πŸ™Œ Some use cases: πŸ—‚οΈ Sell a digital product by sharing the zip file [Dropbox + Coffee Links] πŸ“– Share the first draft of your next book with your readers [Google Docs + Coffee Links] πŸŽ₯ Share your upcoming Youtube video with your most loyal fans [YouTube unlisted + Coffee Links] 🏷️ Take order for advertising on your blog or Instagram page [Typeform link + Coffee Links] We whipped up some Coffeelinks for you: (use the code 'ILIKETEA' to get free access) –– https://bmc.xyz/l/NewEbook –– https://bmc.xyz/l/CatVideo –– https://bmc.xyz/l/SponsorMyInsta 4 months ago, we launched Buy Me A Coffee on Product Hunt (https://www.producthunt.com/posts/buy-me-a-coffee). We were unsure about the launch back then, we were struggling with payment frauds (among many other things); mostly because we decided to handle payment-hassles ourselves and make it super-simple for our users. We had to deploy a lot of our resources to security and fraud prevention (Stripe helped us with early access to their ML-powered Radar 2.0 πŸ™). Then PH happened πŸš€ Thousands of creators started using Buy Me A Coffee. Activist William LeGate raised $3k with just a tweet (http://bit.ly/2KLZfGx ), game developers started making upwards of $5k/month and the best part? Waking up every day to tons of tweets, blog posts and videos about how creators are using BMC to receive support to buy equipment, pay bills and most importantly, create more great content <3 Much love everyone ❀️We wouldn't be here without you guys. β€” Joseph Cofounder, Buy Me A Coffee

I love you. Also, needs more detailed previews to get the feeling of the hidden content. Of course, the publisher can do it in description, but last time I checked you were all about making it easier. Did I mention I love you?

@igoruphere Haha, we heard you so loud and clear that we bought you a coffee β˜•πŸ’– Thanks for the comment and thoughtful suggestion, Igor! We'll surely think of ways to add more features without cluttering the sales page.

This is amazing! We already use BMAC for one of our projects and currently in the midst of adding BMAC integrations to 2 on-going projects. Hands down the best and the most fun way of getting support from our community πŸ™Œ I tried patreon but it wasn't for us. As developers, the word 'coffee' attracted us by 10x magnetic force. Looking forward to use Coffeelinks pretty soon. Thank you Jijo and the team! We are in your coffee debt ;)

Could you guys share how you managed to grow your community and when was the initial release? Love the product so far πŸš€

@ali_siam Hey Ali, of course, we would love to share! There was a 2-month private beta phase before we launched publicly on the 1st week of Jan (https://www.producthunt.com/posts/buy-me-a-coffee). Things we tried initially: – Talked to early creators (a lot). We had to do this because BMC is inherently viral (creators sharing their BMC page = more creators signing up) + we got to learn plenty about how to serve them best. – We were super-active on Twitter from day 1. We engaged with all mentions and bought a bunch of coffees to many great creators 😻 – Automated organic growth by adding cues to share more, from the welcome email to dashboard pages. Not sure how well it worked. – Buttons surely helped with search rankings –– https://twitter.com/BuyMeACoffeeHQ/status/986487744967860225. Hope this helps, Ali. I'll do a blog post covering all these in depth and more. πŸ’―
Ali Siam
@jijosunny Thats awesome! I know from experience building a platform with a community takes a lot of time, I'm glad you are seeing growth. I'm hoping this can replace my needs for Fiverr in a unique way. :D Looking forward to your blog post! Link me your Medium profile if you will post on there and I'll follow you. Cheers & best of luck!

Do CoffeeLinks accept query parameters? I'm looking for a simple way to attach payments to existing users and this would offer A LOT of possibilities for one time fees
Joseph Sunny
Maker
@hypervillain We currently don't support any query parameters, since we designed it as a selling platform and not a payment gateway. However, I'll add this to our list for v2 πŸ‘Œ
Hugo Villain
@joseph_sunny Great! When are you planning V2? Let's connect on Twitter, I have a bit of code sitting for this πŸ™Œ
Joseph Sunny
Maker
@hypervillain Sure thing! Thanks, Hugo πŸ™Œ Btw sorry, but no ETA for v2 at the moment.

Jake Crump
Another cool product from the BMC folks! So, how does everyone take their coffee?
Joseph Sunny
Maker
@jakecrump Thanks, Jake! πŸ™Œ Creators instantly receive the coffee $$ if they set up Stripe. For peeps using Paypal, there's a small payout threshold ($10) –– but it's much easier and offers a lot more payment methods.
