One of the core things of Flattr is of course getting money in and out of the system. The new Flattr will have great improvements in this area, this is how it will work.
We have used Skrill (Previously named Moneybookers) and PayPal almost since the launch of Flattr. Currently we are only using Skrill and soon we will only use Mangopay, although they will be totally integrated into the system, so you will never see them. Because of the move to Mangopay can we unify the balance for incoming and outgoing money, meaning you will only have one wallet.
Most users today use Visa or Mastercard to add money to the system. If you are one of them you will be able to save the card to enable automatic refill when more money is needed. Sofort and Giropay will also be supported as well as normal bank transfers.
Withdrawal of money will not be done to your PayPal account anymore, instead it will be done directly to your saved bank account. We are also thinking of automatic payouts as an added convenience.
If you want to send a creator some money besides the Flattrs, that will once again be possible to do. Maybe even recurring transfers in the future, if you want that.
All this is a huge step for the usability of the service, making the usage more obvious in the payments area.
As always we love feedback!
