    I think a service like this will be great for small websites . A dollar or two would be nice.

    Flattr has the potential for popularity among users looking for something different, but with Naymz, Digg and others already in the market…there’s a lot of competition. I definitely like the concept, it will be interesting to see how their online community develops over the next few months.

    I don’t think Flattr stands a snowball’s chance with the micro payment tip jar primarily because the majority of users don’t tip. Moreover, most users are “suspect” of any new vehicle for making a payment. How does a company like Flattr even make money from micro payment processing? The margins must be micro! Flattr’s best chance is to get bought out by a company with legitimacy like Facebook for it to have any chance of success.

    I’ve been using Flattr for a while now and the only real problems I see with the service is the pick-up of new users. I can find content across the web daily that I wish to Flattr, but am unable to, since that individual site owner is not signed up – nor is there an easy way to get in touch with them.

    In turn, if there’s nothing for me to Flattr – or I can’t tip the things I want to – why should I use the service? I’ve stuck with it, for now, but not sure how long it will last.
