Ever since the release of Barista Express, we have realized more and more that monetization on the web was not a trivial problem to tackle, yet is crucial for this ecosystem’s growth.
In addition to ads, we are announcing our support for Coil on Construct Arcade. If you want to use Coil, setting it up is done in a few simple steps:
1) Create a coil account
We begin by creating a Coil account at https://coil.com/signup
After entering your credentials and agreeing to Coil’s Terms of Service, you will receive a confirmation email for your Coil account. Confirm it and you will be redirected to the explore page.
2) Setup creator account
On the explore page, click on “Start creating”.
This will prompt you to enter some more information, continue until you reach the payout selection page shown below.
3) Select your payout option
You can setup any of the supported payout options for web monetization you like, but for simplicity’s sake we are using XRPTipbot in this tutorial. Press the “Setup” button under XRPTipbot to proceed.
5) Submit your game to Construct Arcade
If you are submitting a new game, you can include your Coil meta tag in your submissions on the Submission form or you can shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to add it to your game.
If your game is already on Construct Arcade and you want to setup a Coil tag for it, you should also contact us via the email address above.
We hope this incentivizes more people to do the simple setup process and use Coil in their games in the future.
Thanks for reading,
Florian from Construct Arcade
