Tips and Donations feature apparently on the way

The open source Ghost source code shows work recently done on a “Tips & Donations” feature that appears slated to appear in the “Labs” section in the future. Here are the details I see in the code so so far:

  • Support for suggested amounts
  • Only backend I see clearly supported is Stripe, the partner already used for subscription payments.
  • Multiple currencies supported. I did not dig for the complete list, but I imagine it aligns with what Stripe supports.

This may be a solution for people looking for one-time payments instead of subscriptions. I haven’t looked closely to see if admins can force the amount to be a specific value or if tip/donation amount is always something the user can choose.

You can see all the mentions of “donations” for yourself here:
