Vimeo has created a revolutionary new way to monetize your films. Their new "Tip Jar" feature allows any random viewers of your cat videos to donate directly into your PayPal account. Vimeo takes a 15% cut, and you get paid within 30-60 days. These are great days to be a filmmaker, kiddos.
How to activate Tip Jar on your Vimeo films:
1. Login, or create a Vimeo Plus account ($9.95/month). Link your Paypal account to your Vimeo account.
2. In the Videos menu, click VIDEOS
3. Click the SETTINGS menu (or icon menu) in the upper right corner of the video you want to activate.
4. In VIDEO settings, click ADVANCED (far right menu)
5. Scroll down and click ACTIVATE TIP JAR FOR THIS VIDEO
6. Save Changes.
There's a great Tip Jar FAQ HERE.
