Why not set up a Paypal donation page?<br>
<br>
I have one you can copy here:<br>

It took all of 5 minutes, and they take less % than Flattr.<br>
<br>
Regarding fraud, Paypal has a pretty reasonable policy; if it&#39;s not a<br>
&quot;he said, she said&quot; case, then they&#39;ll make you whole.<br>
<br>
Flattr is going to run into some problems with network effects - it&#39;s<br>
not a useful system until enough people are using it.  Paypal overcame<br>
this hurdle by targeting Ebay, and then getting acquired by Ebay.<br>
<br>
Disclaimer: I used to work for Paypal and still own stock.<br>
