Keen to have your own Tributors page?

Are you a creator that has a social media following and have started a project or event that needs product to make this happen? Then Tributors is for you.

We are currently testing the website and are only taking on a few creators right now. Please enter your details below and we’ll keep you up to date with the progress.


 
 

Want to know more?

Tributors is a website where fans can buy a creator the products they need for a project or lifestyle event they are publicly sharing online.
An example is a YouTuber is building a boat and needs help to buy some of the building materials to finish. Their fans can help by purchasing an item on the YouTubers Tributors page that would really help them. Then the fan can feel a part of the project when they see their item being used in a video with a shout-out to say thank you.
Another example is an Instagramer shares that she’s pregnant. She wants to get her fans involved with an online baby shower. She adds items to her Tributors page that her fans can purchase, like a blanket or nappies. She can make it an on-going campaign with posts and stories when she buys each item.

What the page looks like

A creator has their own page where they add an intro and header image. It’s designed to focus more on the creator than Tributors. The fan sees a selection of items they can purchase on the creators page. When purchased, they go through to the checkout page that only shows items from the creators page.

Why is this better than crowd funding or a wish list with one merchandise company?

Fans feel more involved with the project when they can say "I purchased that item!". Fans feel more confident contributing because they know exactly where their money is going. Unlike a crowd funder, a fan might come back multiple times to purchase different items as the project processes and they see what’s happening online. There is no hesitation from fans about creating an account and no lost income because fans become confused with the process - it is just like buying an item online!
Creators can visit their local shops and not wait for online shipping. It can give a more authentic experience with the ability to visit a shop and share a story with their community. There is also the option of supporting a local business.
Creators can have a venue or experience on their page, as this isn't restricted to just products.

What are the fees?

Tributors will take a percentage of the creators earnings to support the staff running this website. If you want to know more about who runs this website, visit our About page. We are still testing this process so payment through Paypal will take between 5-10 days.
