I agree,Kevin deserves way more reward for his efforts.
Ideas,
1 Buy 'nice' yellow cards
2 Keyholders set a price to reveal the green at the beginning of the lock, you know your going to pay it, but after x days you'll be more than happy to part with 10 bucks/quid/euros

both of these are great ideas!
my outfits are not cheap and I don't like asking for donations

Thanks but to be honest I'd much rather you donate to your keyholders when you've got a good relationship with them and you're enjoying the locks that they offer and manage.

It would be a shame to lose some of the popular keyholders because they feel they're putting in too much time and effort and not getting much in return. I'm not talking about findom. Just a little donation or something from their wishlists etc. A little thank you gift.

@miss danni it would be a nightmare/impossible for me to manage the in-app purchases like that, for me to send keyholders money earnt from keys purchased using their locks.

I have no problem of you asking for donations (I hope you're getting some), selling locks, or charging for early release, but you would have to manage the payments with the user outside of the app.

I don't charge for locks and mostly rely on voluntary donations, but i appreciate your efforts and continuing support of the app and the forums

Perhaps Kevin could set himself up a patreon account. As i would donate some money for his work but the only way to is release keys and removing ads. I don't want to remove the ads because he has them set up in a non intrusive manner and i know he would get more than the 4 dollars if i just leave them in

It looks like with patreon.com you offer bonus content for different prices i.e. pay $1 and you get this, $2 and you get that plus something else etc. I don't see what I could offer that people would want that's not already in the app. I'll have to look at some more existing patreon accounts to see what people are offering.

I won't pretend I haven't thought about some form of subscription service with the app via the app stores, but don't worry it's not really something I'm considering at the moment. I don't feel the app is ready for that yet.

I could look at giving the option to buy cards, maybe for a $1 in-app purchase which will give you a booster pack of cards that can be added to any locks until they've all gone. You wouldn't really want to add greens to a lock that required multiple greens as that would make it harder to unlock but if you add a green card to a lock that only requires one green card then you've doubled the chance of unlocking early. The pack could contain random cards but with a good chance of getting useful cards (so not all reds).

It'll probably work best though if that pack had cards in it that couldn't be added to the lock normally when creating it (so new cards not yet thought of).

If booster packs are introduced then the cards at the top of the screen that allow you to add specific cards to the deck will need to change/be reduced.

Hi Kevin, could you just publish your PayPal details and leave them in a 'sticky' topic?
That way those who want to donate can, and leave a note of thanks if they feel really moved. 😊
