Tipping on Blast

Without supporting artists, there is no art. We encourage all users to tip if they can and have worked to make doing so as simple as possible.

- Our onboarding flow explains tipping and encourages users to tip
- There is a prominent tip button on the player screen of our app
- User profiles show how much they have tipped to reward the behavior
- Artists will soon be able to reward users that tip most with special promotions

  • To streamline the tipping process and ensure stability and security, we are leaning on the infrastructure built through Apple and Google's app store as well as a leading third-party payment processing platform.

50% of tips go directly to artists. The remaining 50% is divided between Apple, Google, the payment processor, and a small cut to Blast to ensure we can cover our operating cost and continue to improve our product for artists and listeners.
