Adblock Plus Announces Increased Fees for Micropayment Platform Flattr
Relaunch of Flattr is coming later this month.
Last week Adblock Plus announced higher fees and a new fee structure for micropayment platform Flattr. Both are owned by parent company Eyeo. Eyeo acquired Flattr in April. The fee will now be broken down into two parts. Content creators and publishers, who receive micropayments from readers via Flattr, will be charged a monthly fee of 7.5 percent to cover Flattr’s operating costs. Also, when they first sign up, content creators and publishers will be charged a fee of 9 percent to cover payment processing.
