Reviewing Online Tip Jars

from the begging-for-money dept

A NY Times article (yes, again, this means you have to register for it) that looks at some of the sites that have implemented Amazon’s Honor System or ask for donations using things like PayPal. It seems like a few of the more popular sites have brought in a little bit of cash – though nothing too overwhelming. Also, the main problem with these systems (as pointed out in the article) is that they’re really good for a one-time cash infusion. It’s not like people wake up every month and remember to tip their favorite websites.
