Personalize Your Page With Ko-fi Gold
Creators often say how much nicer it is to ask for a coffee rather than just "a donation". If coffee isn't your thing or if there's something more relevant to what you create you can change the metaphor to something more personal to you.
Shorter usernames are another exclusive perk of Ko-fi Gold. Make your page easier to say, type, and remember with a shorter 3 letter+ username.
Start using your Ko-fi Gallery as a portfolio to showcase your work. With Ko-fi Gold your images will be displayed at a higher resolution and you can also allow supporters to download hi-res versions (a really quick and easy supporter reward).
