Flattr makes it easier for people to give money to charities and activists of the
causes they support thanks to micropayments.
Micropayments work through a button that works a lot like the Like-button, the
difference being that clicking the Flattr button means sending real money. It is
much easier to use than any donation options; all it takes is a click.. This video) explains how Flattr works.
The bottom line is that your supporters can seamlessly make micropayments to you.
While "micropayment" doesn't sound like much, they make a lot in volume. Tim Pritlov
can attest to that. He’s a German podcaster that uses flattr and gets an average
monthly revenue of roughly 2000 Euro through flattr. You can find out more about him

Flattr also serves as a content discovery tool so the added benefit is that you and
the cause you support get more visibility online.
