Commissions are great for those creators, who want to sell unique and creative services to their supporters. The process is simple and quick. Figure out what you want to offer, create a listing, set the price, and share it with your followers. If they are interested, they pay you upfront and then both of you can work out the details together.
What can you offer as Commissions?
If you're skilled at something you enjoy doing, we suggest you can offer it as a Commission on Buy Me a Coffee. Here are a few ideas of what you could offer through Commissions.

Fact: Our data indicates that creators who provide commissions earn over three times the amount compared to those who only receive donations.
Key tips to keep in mind
Make sure you add to listing what you're really good at. For example, if you're skilled at teaching, offer live lessons. If you're a talented digital artist, consider creating digital art based on what your supporters request.
Enable the "pay what you want" option. This lets them give you more money if they're feeling generous.
Change the name of Commissions to something like Services, Bookings, Requests, or Readings—pick the one that matches what you're providing. If you offer tarot readings, go with "readings," for instance.
Consider having a limited number of total slots available. This means you set a limit to each listing. But if you don't think this is needed and want to offer as many slots as possible, you can skip setting a limit for the slots too.
Offer your members a special discount on commissions. This way, you can value your current members and maybe even attract more.
Don't forget to turn off your commissions if you need a break. Once you're ready, you can easily turn them back on again.
