[Mobile][Developer] Tipping

[Mobile][Developer] Tipping

Let's face it, 9.99 for the wealth of artists you get on Spotify is insane value.

I sometimes feel guilty that the smaller, less played artists get missed in a fair share / decent share of Spotify Royalties or even supers fans that pay so little for the music they listen to. If Spotify had an option to tip for the music a user has listened to a lot with interactive prompts suggesting tipping and done through an easy click through to do so, through a Spotify payment system, I think it would boost revenue to artists/labels through a non-committed regular payment instead of raising prices. 

The "covid donations" dont work and aren't suggestive enough. If a user tips then gets messages on how the extra is helping support their favorite labels/ artists would make it a win, win for both consumer and provider. It has to be a fun interactive system, on the app.

Hey @Zebsta,


Thanks for posting in the Community and welcome.


We hope you don't mind us moving your post out of the ideas section to one of our Help boards as it fits better here.


That being said, we’d like to share with you that Artist Fundraising Pick has now grown and has been renamed as Fan Support.


Through partners like Cash App, GoFundMe,, and Mercado Pago, fans have the ability to directly support the artists they love as well as the causes that artists care about most with Fan Support.


Fans and artists now have more options for connecting and engaging on Spotify, whether it is through streaming royalties, merchandise, ticketing, live interaction, or direct support, thanks to the addition of Fan Support to Spotify for Artists' expanding array of monetization tools.
