Hi Folks! Today we’re gonna share some advice about tipping (and cashing out) on Folkspaper.
1. Why we value our users and building a community
Folkspaper is a free to use app, and we appreciate every single one of our users. You can easily create an account and start posting in minutes. We appreciate the community of tens of thousands of folks that we have created over the months. We appreciate the valuable content our users create, and we are excited to see more of it everyday. We let our users curate their content, so you will see that high quality content creators will be featured in the “home” section of Folkspaper, as their posts have a high impact on the community.
2. Why should you tip
Tipping is a way to show encouragement for the valuable content creators on Folkspaper. We encourage users to tip as a way to curate high quality content from your fellow writers to make the community better. You should tip so writers know that their work is being appreciated and that they should keep posting more of that kind of content. The writers will also appreciate the feedback of their readers in other ways (comments, reactions).
3. How to tip
To tip, you need to open the user’s post where you would like to tip. Then, you can tap on “Tip” (with a bone icon) on the lower left of the screen. After that, you can select the amount of bones you would like to tip. If you don’t have enough bones you’ll get a message that will take you to the screen to buy more bones.
4. How to get bones
You can tap the upper left corner of the app (three bars) and then tap on ‘Folks Store’. There, you can tap on “Bones” and select the amount of bones you wanna get.
If you don’t have enough of our in-app currency, Power, to get the bones, you can get it by going to “Power station” (also tapping the three bars on the upper left corner of the app). There, you can get power by watching ads or go to one of the options under “Add power” where you can get power using your preferred payment method.
5. Cashout Process
To cash out, you can tap the three bars on the upper left corner and tap on “Power station”. From there, you’ll go all the way down to “Power eligible for withdrawal” where you can see how much power you can cash out. Then, you’ll tap on “Exchange” next to the amount of power. This will take you to the “Transfer balance” screen where you can choose the amount of power you want transferred.
You can enter your PayPal email address and tap on “Send code”. You’ll receive a code on the phone number you used to sign up on this Folkspaper account. After tapping on transfer, you can expect the amount you selected to be on your Paypal account in a couple of hours.
If you don’t have Paypal, you can tap on the lower right of the “Transfer balance” screen where it says “No Paypal account? Use Bitcoin”. There you can put your designated Bitcoin address and tap on “Send code”. You’ll receive a code on the phone number you used to sign up on this Folkspaper account. After tapping on transfer, you can expect the amount you selected to be on your account in a few days.
6. Thanking your followers for tips
Thanking your readers is a very important part of building your community. You can let your followers know how much you appreciate their tips by leaving a comment and mentioning each user that tipped you. You can also mention the users that tipped you in your next post adding a section at the end of the post.
