I thought the PayPal donation button looks ugly and I think there were some privacy issues with it, too. So today I’ve set up Liberapay and Ko-fi as alternatives.
The fun thing is that in the end, I’ll be paid out with PayPal anyway. But this way, with a middle man, it will be more private and less exposed, for both ends. Or at least in theory.
I haven’t received any payments yet, so I can’t tell for sure.
I think the new buttons look much better too and Liberapay even offers those badges with status on how much I’m receiving and how far my goal has been reached!
You can check out the new buttons on the right sidebar, at the bottom!
