More Details

Just a few things to know about this core feature

Tips to Creator

All tips go to the fan page creator, not the message creator. Other users can add a tip on your message as well, and all message tips are itemized per user.

Cumulative Totals

All message tips are added to a fan's cumulative donations on your fan page. This lets the fan rise up on the leaderboard and potentially unlock your rewards.

Instant Notifications

We instantly give you email and in-app notifications, so you don't miss and tipping actions your fans take. Reply and thank your supporters in a timely way.


Some frequently asked questions about our audio messages

Tipping is a great way for fans to get your attention.

If you do things like fan shout-outs or feature fan's audio clips on your show, then encourage them to add a tip to their message to help make that happen!


Fans can tip the same message as many times as they want. In fact, even other fans can tip that same message. 

We itemize every tip when you click on the tip amount. 

For one, Q&A works really well with message tips. Tell your fans you'll feature their question on the next episode if they leave a certain tip amount. 

Be creative! You can even tell fans to read their ad insert as an audio message, and leave a tip to get added into your ad spot. 



When fans make a message tip, their total contributions will also increase. This helps fans rise on your leaderboard and be eligible to unlock any rewards you might have if their cumulative donations cross your reward thresholds. 


Since all payments are handled in Stripe, you can always initiate a donation refund through your Stripe dashboard. 

We're glad you asked!  We are constantly adding  more features to make Fanlist a  powerful,  easy-to-use audience engagement tool for Podcasters...and we appreciate your feedback to help make that happen!
