Awarding Publishers

  1. Users Browse the Web & Create Tips

    TipTheWeb users create Tips to stuff they find as they browse the web. Creating a Tip is like saving a bookmark to something you like, except you also choose an amount of money you think the publisher deserves for making something great.

  2. Users Donate to Fund Tips

    When users make a donation to TipTheWeb (we’re a non-profit), they can use the amount of that donation to fund Tips in their account. (Until a Tip is funded, only the tipper can see it.)

  3. Users Share Tips with Others

    Once a Tip is funded, TipTheWeb can use that money to support the appropriate publisher, and the user can share that Tip with other people, both within TipTheWeb as well as on Twitter or Facebook.

  4. Publishers Claim where they Publish

    Publishers use their free TipTheWeb account to claim the places where they publish online, and TipTheWeb uses this information to figure out who’s responsible for the content that users tip.

  5. TipTheWeb Awards Publishers

    TipTheWeb makes monthly awards to Web publishers. The award amounts are based on the total funded Tips made to content by the publishers. TipTheWeb doesn’t charge any fees when publishers receive awards!

  6. Publishers Make More Good Stuff!

    By financially supporting the publishers that are creating the best stuff, we help and encourage them to continue their contributions to the Web, and everyone benefits!
