The Money

  1. Compatibility
  • In order to tip someone without prohibitive fees, a user needs to be on PayPal already. Venmo users cannot pay PayPal users, CashApp users cannot pay Venmo users, and Zelle users cannot pay CashApp users. This is very limiting to the audience, especially on a global scale.
  • PayPal’s fees frequently price out smaller merchants and murder the micropayment economy. Currently, online transactions cost a merchant 2.9% + $0.30 if the payment is coming from within the U.S. and 4.4% + $0.30 if the payment is coming from outside the U.S. This fee structure obsoletes the micropayment economy entirely.
  • Arguably the biggest issue is PayPal’s stance on who they serve on their platform. In November of 2019, PayPal removed support for over 100,000 PornHub performers. Currently, PornHub recommends users to pay models through bank deposits, requiring users to enter their beneficiary name, ABA Routing number, and Account number to make a donation.
