Last Updated: January 11, 2023

WHAT IS TIPSNAPS?

www.tipsnaps.com is a social media website where social media influencers(Creators) can share and sell exclusive content to their loyal followers(Fans).
Also, users can use it just like any other social media website, similar to apps like Twitter or Facebook to post and share content with friends for free.

HOW DOES TIPSNAPS WORK?

Creators Register and set up a Page where they upload content (audio, pictures & videos). Fans register and can Subscribe to Creators or Tip them directly in a request for Content. Fans and Creators can interact with each other via Direct Messages and comments on content or posts.
TipSnaps is Free to use for Creators and Fans, however, we take a small platform fee against any Creator Earnings per our Payment Policy.

WHAT IS A CREATOR?

A Creator is a Content creator on TipSnaps. Creators make money on TipSnaps. You must have a significant social following to be approved as a Creator. We review all Creator registrations and reserve the right to switch your account to a Tipper account or Cancel accounts which do not qualify to be a Creator. You must have over 5,000 followers on mainstream social media platforms to be approved as a Creator.

WHAT IS A FAN?

A Fan is a loyal fan of a Creator and either Subscribes to the Creator's Page or they send them Tips in exchange for Content(Pictures & Videos).

HOW DO I MAKE MONEY?

As a Creator you can get paid by setting your Subscription price when you register, and marketing your new TipSnaps Page to all of your loyal social media followers. They will subscribe to your page or send you tips for uploading pictures and videos on a regular basis. The more you upload and market your channel, the better your channel will perform.

HOW CAN I GET PAID?

Creators who generate at least $50.00 will receive bi-weekly payouts via their preferred payout method. Our payment methods are listed on our Payment Policy page. Please contact support@tipsnaps.com for more information.

HOW IS TIPSNAPS DIFFERENT FROM COMPETITORS?

At TipSnaps we believe in uplifting the overlooked and underestimated users from all the major social platforms. Social Media and the Creator economy is worth hundreds of billions of dollars and most of the platforms do not allow monetization or really try to help Creators or care about Fans. As a Black/Minority Founded company we understand the history of inequality in tech and believe its paramount that users have options. Our value system is portrayed in our platform. We do not shadowban, we do not have algorithms that force content upon you. We believe in equality and fairness. And we believe that the Content Creators should benefit the most from the amazing content they create, NOT the platform.
This is why we have a low 10% platform fee compared to many other platforms which have a 20%+ fee.
From a feature perspective, we allow creators to monetize via Monthly Subscriptions, One time Tips, or via Crowdfunding with TipPools. We also support Live streaming for any creator with actual subscribers.

HOW DOES TIPPOOLS WORK?

TipPools is a crowdfunding campaign for a specific singular “piece” of content. This can be a Video, Audio, Picture or Live Stream. Or collection of the aforementioned. TipPools is Fan initiated. This means Fans can come up with the idea for what they want, without the explicit consent of the creator they are requesting from. This is because initially, a TipPool is simply a REQUEST & petition for content. Its never a demand. Its purely user generated content from fans requesting content from their favorite creators.
For TipPool campaigns, We NEVER charge credit cards of Fans who contribute until the Creator accepts and claims the pool. This way, we never hold any funds before the creator 100% in agreement and is willing to create the content.
Fans can create a TipPool, and share it on social media until it reaches the intended goal amount. The Creator will claim the pool and subsequently deliver the content promised in the pool. Only the fans who contributed to the pool will be able to view/enjoy the content uploaded from the Creator. Any TipPool can be removed from our platform if it does not adhere to our Terms and Conditions.

HOW DO I CLAIM A TIPPOOL – AS A CREATOR?

Creators can claim a Pool by Registering a creator account and clicking ‘ This Pool is about me, Claim this Pool’ . You will subsequently be put in touch with TipSnaps support and we will verify your identity. We will then assign the Pool to your account which enables you to now see all the contributors and the total petitioned value. Once you are content with the amount raised, we will close the pool and subsequently charge credit cards from the contributors. The funds will be held in escrow until you upload the content to the Pool page. Once the content is uploaded, the funds are transferred to your preferred payment method which you would have set up at Registration. We will be here to support and guide you through the entire process. Always feel free to reach out to support@tipsnaps.com.

WHEN WILL I SEE THE CONTENT FROM A TIPPOOL?

As a Fan, you will only see the Content being petitioned for from a TipPool once the Creator “Claims the Pool” and your payment method has been charged. Then the Creator will work to Create the content requested in the Pool and upload it to TipSnaps. We DO NOT guarantee any content being delivered in a TipPool.

AS A FAN, WHAT HAPPENS IF I OFFER A CREATOR A TIP AND THEY DON'T ACCEPT IT?

You will receive a refund to your TipSnaps wallet from the Tip Offer. You can then Subscribe/Tip another Creator on the platform or contribute those funds to a TipPool.

CAN I UNSUBSCRIBE FROM A CREATOR

Yes. Go to BALANCE > SUBSCRIPTIONS . You will have an option to Un-subscribe from any Creators you are actively subscribed to.

IS ANY CONTENT PROHIBITED?

TipSnaps allows Creators to upload various categories of content as long as it is legal. Please review our Content Guidelines to ensure you’re not infringing on our Terms & Conditions.

ARE REFUNDS ALLOWED?

Per our Terms & Conditions all sales on TipSnaps are final. However if you believe you have been wronged/ or mislead by any creator, please send an email to support@tipsnaps.com and we can review your transaction and possibly refund the transaction balance to your TipSnaps account.
