The Money Button, a new application which allows bitcoin cash (BCH) transact into websites has started its service since September 13. Not long after the launch, the developer, Ekliptor, published Cashtippr, a plugin which combines Money Button into WordPress.
Cashtippr is an open source plugin for WordPress which allows integration of software modules which are created by third-party developers. Content creators can install Cashtippr plugin to receive BCH tips or impose cost for hidden or paid content. As for examples, if an individual runs a website about their art, they can add a Money Button on the web and collect tips from viewers. Furthermore, the plugin does not require any coding skills to set up and it can be easily installed through WordPress plugin store or the cashtippr.zip file on Cashtippr’s homepage.
After the plugin installation, users can simply add their BCH addresses in the WordPress admin-panel. Tip buttons will be appeared on the front page or posts by adding a short code: [tippr_button]. If a content creator wants to make a hidden paid content page, they can just type: [tippr_hide]your hidden text[/tippr_hide]. These two are basic functions of Cashtippr but there are more available services such as selling digital media and unlocking blurry photos or secret video content.
Cashtippr also contains advanced functions which allows WordPress to decide limits on how many hidden posts new users can view by using cookies. Users can set a range of full access passes to specific hidden content or create a “donation goals” button. Hidden content can also be changed into free content after a certain period. Users can connect a link to a bitcoin cash or have a content search engine.
The Cashtippr WordPress plugin is free of charge and the receiving address can be set to any wallet but people who want to pay with the Money Button are required for registration. Money Button creators are considering to charge a free for high-traffic publications and popular applications.
Safari users will experience problems using the Money Button and Cashtippr because of Apple’s privacy guidelines. Nevertheless, if they disable the “Prevent Cross-Site Tracking” option on iOS, users can apply Money Button. For Safari desktop uses, with “Preferences” option in the “Privacy” section, they can also disable the same function to use it on the desktop.
