Twitter has helped a lot of people online mostly especially internet marketers and online entrepreneurs. Many people are addicted to it. They can’t let a day pass without posting even just a single tweet to their friends about their activities during the day. Social marketers are given a chance to advertise their products for free. Others even earn money from their tweets.
Twitpay enables twitter members to make small payments between each other. An individual just need to have a twitter account and he/she can already use the services of Twitpay. If you want to sell different kinds of content like music, videos, your written ebooks and photos to other twitter members, they can pay you through this small payment system by sending a single tweet. Your payment is sent by tweeting a message to your recipient in the format: “@aphrodite twitpay $10 ebook sales”. The recipient will then be notified of the transaction. The recipient can then withdraw or transfer money using their paypal account. You can also replenish your Twitpay account through paypal. Minimum cashout is $10 which can be withdrawn through paypal or through Amazon giftcard.
Selling your digital products at Twitpay using their RT2Buy service is also possible. This service is incorporated with Twitpay which makes you easier to pay and receive payments from clients over Twitter. Twitpay only charges a minimal fee of $0.05 per transaction over $0.99. This is a good a rate for a site with a good service.
Twippr is another micropayment platform using twitter. They have almost similar features with Twitpay. They charge 4% fee for every fund transfer to the client’s paypal account. Adding and receiving funds to and from your twippr account also uses paypal. Similarly with Twitpay, you don’t need to sign-up in order to avail of its services. You just need to have a twitter account and have to open a Paypal account for sending and receiving money transactions. You can send money by a single tweet through the message box. There are so many things you can do using Twippr. You can send your small debts by sending a single tweet to your friends. Below are the formats for the different transactions using twippr:
Pay other twitter users for a service rendered to you: twippr pay $2 @user
Have you read a blog post or any article you found online and you want to give a tip for a job well done? You can always send a small token to the writer by sending a tweet in the format: twippr tip 75c @user 42
Some bloggers want to have a donation button in their blogs. Others use paypal but for now, you can already send a donation through twitter using: twippr donate 50c @user
If in case, there was a little problem with your transaction and you finally decided to cancel it, cancellation of your previous payment transaction is also possible. A previous tweet can be cancelled using the format: twippr cancel
Other functions and formats can also be checked at their main site. You can always add a clickable button at your blog for the tips, pay and donate functions. Twippr has available codes for these functions that you can add to your blogs.
Twippr supports other currencies aside from US dollar. You can also pay using British pounds sterling, Japanese Yen and European euros. Users who are under 13 years old though are not yet allowed to use the services. If in case they need to pay someone through twitter, it has to be through their parents’ account.
Tipit.to helps twitter members transfer funds to each other. This is great service for all blog owners as it will help them earn more income from their blogs. The idea is to put a tip jar at your blog. If you write good quality contents, your readers would be more willing to give you a little token for a job well done. The tip jar will serve as a reminder that this gesture is allowed in your blog. Many readers do really give tips. They find it better than paying for someone to do the work for them. The information provided that they badly need at the moment is worth more than any amount of tip they could give. Once your audience will start sending these tips through tipit.to, the few cents would eventually be accumulated into a bigger amount. Sometimes, it would even be higher than the few cents you earn daily from adsense.
Tipjoy has another great service that enables members to pay and receive payments from each other through twitter. Not only that it allows paying services between members but they can also try to start a fundraising campaign for some organization they are helping. Members can also add a tipyjoy button to their blogs and other sites to tap other twitter users who would be interested to help their cause. A sample payment format of Tipjoy is:
p $3 @savethechild to contribute to save the child orphanage
Aside from these wonderful services, some sites emerged not only to earn money but also to help twitter members more. These micropayment sites through twitter have provided twitter users another great opportunity. The twitter donation, tip me and tip joy buttons are really useful for blog owners. These may be small sites and still in beta now but who knows? They could be big giants in the future. We are given these opportunities and as bloggers, webmasters and online businessmen, we just have to make the best of our stay. At the same time, let us kick some cash and start earning money.
