The Pinecast Tip Jar allows listeners to send monetary contributions to content creators.
In order to be able to leave a tip, a podcast must have set up a cashout account. This can be done from the Tips tab on a podcast dashboard.
To receive payouts, you may connect to:
- For US-based users: USD bank accounts domiciled in and debit cards issued in the United States.
- For CA-based users: CAD and USD bank accounts domiciled in Canada.
- For UK-based users: GBP and EUR bank accounts domiciled in the UK.
- For AU-based users: AUD bank accounts domiciled in Australia.
Other countries will be supported soon. If you're interested in support for another country, please reach out to customer support.
By using the Pinecast Tip Jar, you agree with and accept the Stripe Connected Account Agreement.
Once a cashout account has been added, tips will begin being accepted. A URL will be available in the Tips tab of your podcast dashboard, and a flair option will be added when adding new episodes.
Note: Adding a cashout account will not retroactively enable tip flair for all previous episodes.
Tips are processed by Stripe, so a small percentage of the tip is deducted to cover the cost of the transaction. For free accounts, a fee of 30% (before Stripe's processing fee) will be added to the tip. Starter and Community subscriptions will not have an additional fee.
Different plans have different maximum tip values:
- Demo: $10
- Starter: $20
- Community: $50
A single tip may not exceed a podcast's tip limit.
Tips are automatically paid out once per week. Tips are held for a minimum of seven days until the next cashout date. Cashouts occur every Friday.
Recurring tips will automatically charge the tipper once per month at the donation level that they choose. Tippers may update their subscription at any time, though tips are not refundable. Tip payout occurs in the same way that one-time tip payouts do.
Recurring tips are not available to free accounts.
