Wevolver has just started to web monetize.


Do you know who is getting the money, the site owner or individual contributors? I see $ but can’t find out who/what that is. This is a weakness of Coil for me, just by visiting I’m streaming payment to them even though I was trying to find out if it was something I want to support or not.

Today, I believe that the Wevolver site owners are receiving monies. Once Coil has an Wordpress plugin it would likely be easier for site owners to be able to also offer monetization to individual contributors. It is also technically possible to stop/pause streaming payments to sites as shown within the Puma Browser implementation. Right now on desktop it seems that the Coil add-on does not include this functionality — but it’s certainly possible, and I would suspect that it’s a feature at some point.
