Transparency is the name of the game.
Pling aims to make donations easy and transparent for creators and donors. We want to help build communities around the projects and foster interaction between creators and users.
If you are a creator, look at it like this: Pling aims to help you keep things rolling, keep your project relevant in the public eye, and attract new users.
If you are a user, Pling makes giving as simple as possible. You don’t even have to register to give to your favourite creator. And you give what you want, only dependent on your perceived merits of the project, following a completely transparent process. At every stage, you control who’s getting what and when.
As mentioned, Pling does not charge any commissions, there are no hidden costs for the projects, no data-harvesting, no ads, and your donation is transferred immediately.
