Below your Weekly Overview section, you'll see your "Tip Jar Stats at a glance" section, providing a quick overview or recent performance. Dive deeper by clicking the View your Tip Jar Stats and View your Tip Jar Dashboard links.
If you’re a Vimeo Plus or Vimeo PRO member, you can activate Tip Jar in your Account Settings, or from any of your videos’ Advanced Settings. Scroll down to the Creator Services payments section of the page and check the box next to “Connect my PayPal account.” You’ll be prompted to sign in to PayPal (or create a new PayPal account) and then connect your PayPal account to Vimeo.
Once you’re connected to PayPal, you can activate Tip Jar on individual videos in their Advanced Video Settings. Simply check the box next to “Activate Tip Jar” and then click Save Changes. Once Tip Jar is activated on a particular video, a Tip this video button will appear underneath the video player on Vimeo.com, allowing viewers to leave tips!
Be sure to double-check the amount you entered before confirming your payment. Tips are not refundable!
You will need a verified PayPal account in order to withdraw your tips. (Learn more about PayPal’s account verification process in their FAQ.)
Please be aware that any violations of the Tip Jar restrictions mentioned above, the Vimeo Guidelines, or our Terms of Service may result in the suspension of Tip Jar on your account. Learn more.
There is no direct way to donate your tips to charity through Vimeo. However, you are welcome to donate your proceeds from Tip Jar to a charity of your choice.
If you're donating your proceeds to charity, you may state that publicly as long as the following conditions are met:
- You may not make any false or misleading statements. (For example, do not make it sound like the tips are going directly to the charity, since the funds are first going through Vimeo and then you.)
- You must make the promised donation. (We may request documentation if we receive any complaints or inquiries.)
- You must state that only your portion of the proceeds will be shared (because, for example, Vimeo's 15% fee will not be included).
- You may not claim that Vimeo endorses the cause or will be involved in processing the donation.
When the payment is processed, a statement reflecting the amount paid will be sent to the email address associated with your Vimeo account.
You will need a verified PayPal account in order to withdraw your payments. (Learn more about PayPal’s verification process in their FAQ.)
Please be aware that the payment will not necessarily appear in your PayPal account immediately – it may take up to 30 additional days for the payment to appear in your account after it has been processed by Vimeo. Please contact PayPal to inquire about the status of any pending payments after Vimeo has processed them.
- You enabled Tip Jar on commercial content.
- You solicited tips in exchange for goods, services, or political donations.
- You uploaded content that does not comply with the Vimeo Guidelines and/or Terms of Service.
If Tip Jar is disabled, all pending tips will be refunded to the individual tippers and you may be asked to return any payments you have already received.
Your all-time total is listed on the Tip Jar section of your Account Settings page. To see a summary of tips made on a particular video, click the Tip Jar button underneath the video player or visit your video’s Advanced Settings page.
If you’re a Plus or PRO member, follow these instructions to activate Tip Jar.
Even if you’re a Plus or PRO member, Tip Jar may be suspended or disabled for violations of our Tip Jar policies.
However, tips may be automatically forfeit and refunded to the tipper if Tip Jar is disabled on the tip recipient’s account due to a violation of our Tip Jar policies.
If you believe that someone else used your credit card or PayPal account to make a tip without your permission, please file a report with your credit card issuer or PayPal directly.
