Overview

ChangeTip offers a micropayments platform that enables you to create your own applications for micropayments. We believe that micropayments will reduce friction (time, cost and cognitive load) around payments, and new human behaviours will be revealed. This will drive a new set of interesting business models and create an environment that takes us to new levels of creativity.

The ChangeTip API has already helped devlopers add tipping to chat on Twitch.tv, and enables instantaneous loyalty rewards delivery for LoveStamp.io, and so many more from our talented api developer community. Find out the basics of how to get started below, or checkout more examples and use cases in the Examples section.
