Keeping things simple 👌
We go to extreme lengths to make it easy for creators to get started, and for their audience to support them.
Making bolder bets & iterating fast ⚡️
We do weekly sprints and ship new features at an alarmingly high speed. The downside is that we are bound to make some mistakes. The upside is that we'll figure things out quickly, and build something significantly better than anything else out there.
Creator-first and we mean it 💃
Every decision we make at Buy Me a Coffee must pass this litmus test. We do not ship a new product or feature if it's not in the best interest of the creators. We listen.
Delightful user experience 🤩
It is a creative challenge to design experiences for the creators, and we obsess over every pixel and detail.
Friendly and fun 🥳
Our name @buymeacoffee probably gave it away, but we like to keep things light and merry. We hope you like it too!
Founders who lived on a $500 ad income 💰
Our founders Jijo Sunny and Joseph Sunny were creators who lived on a moderate advertising income from their creative gigs. Although $500/month is what you pay for a gym membership in San Francisco, it's enough to make a living in many parts of the world. If it weren't for those Adsense checks, there would be no Buy Me a Coffee.
We get what every coffee means to you. ✊
