$1 minimums??? That's nuts! But it won't last long. Information from their FAQ section
Adult content creator @SarahCalanthe is the spokesperson and she's working with two other people as the founders of SwiipeUP. I can't help but notice that Sarah isn't promoting this new platform on her Twitter page. Here is the story on how they teamed up to work on this project:What is SwiipeUp?
SwiipeUp is a simple to use, mobile-friendly sales platform founded by Sarah Calanthe and friends.
Why use SwiipeUp over Venmo, PayPal, Cash App etc.?
Payment apps are known to be hostile towards sex workers and frequently shut down accounts.
SwiipeUp ensures your account will never get shut down because it only uses adult-approved payment processors. They charge us more (~15% of every sale) in exchange for being able to protect our models' earnings.
Where are you based?
We are based in the United States. As a result, your buyers are much less likely to have their credit card rejected or declined when making a purchase.
What can I sell on SwiipeUp?
We support the sale of digital products and services, including:
Private links (for folders, videos, photos and audio files)
Premium subscriptions (with automated recurring payments)
Custom content and live chat sessions (via tips)
We're always working on new stuff. Come chat with us on Discord if you have ideas or suggestions!
What percentage of my sales do I get?
You will receive 80% of all sales you make. For example, if you make a $10 sale, $8 will be added to your earnings.
When will I get paid?
We process payouts every Monday for your prior week's earnings!
The concept is very similar to Unblur of Indiebill and the virtual storefronts that they were offering at one point. Except SwiipeUp is offering an 80% payout and not 85% like Indiebill and Unblur. I also noticed that they mention that transactions have a greater approval because they are based in the United States. This has honestly become a pain in the butt with some of the European platforms. I'd like to learn more about the private links option and if they can be used as expiring links. Can they be customized like the tool used by Project Maenad and now MFC Share, I believe? So far it looks great. I shall report back once I learn more about the creators.Sarah, Maros and Kai met on Reddit in 2018. Kai ran into adult model Sarah Calanthe while working on his previous startup. Maros, who had recently left his job at Snapchat to build his own Bitcoin-based adult startup, had met Kai on Reddit earlier that same year.
The three hit it off and noticed that adult companies have traditionally been inadequate for models because they are owned and operated by content consumers instead of creators.
And so, with Sarah at the helm, Maros leading development and Kai managing operations, SwiipeUp was born in early 2019.
