Give creators a better option

Creators today are forced to annoy you with ads, sell your data, or even compromise their views with sponsored content.

More and more people are using adblockers to make the web more tolerable. Creators don't want to serve ads, but there is no other way to make a living.

Flat provides a better alternative by paying creators directly using the open Web Monetization API being developed at the W3C Interledger Community Group.

Give creators a voice

Many creators today don't have access to bank accounts nor other financial tools needed to run an ad-supported website.

Web Monetization allows services like Flat to pay creators in any currency on any payment system they choose, not just banks.

Wait, how does it work?

Flat gives you unlimited usage with a fixed monthly subscription. Every time you visit a website that supports Web Monetization, the Flat browser extension pays a tiny amount of money to the website. The more you browse the web, the more we're paying creators.

And because Flat is built on open protocols, any competing services which support Web Monetization can pay all of the same creators. We believe an open ecosystem is necessary to attract the most users and creators.

Flat requires Google Chrome to work. Currently, it's only available as a Chrome Extension.

Pricing

Flat just offers one simple plan, $2/month flat.

We want to reward early adopters and get creators paid as soon as possible, so we're giving away longer trials for the first users.

  • The first 1000 users get 24 months free. 882 spots left
