How to enable Web Monetization on your Hashnode blog in 2 steps

Hello Everyone!

Many of you have reached out to us in the past to understand if we support Web Monetization. I am happy to announce that we do! In fact, Hashnode has been "web monetization" ready for more than a year now. However, we never formally announced this.

So, let me explain how you can enable Web Monetization on your Hashnode powered blog in less than a minute.

Step 1

Go to "Integrations" tab of your blog dashboard.

Step 2

Insert your Payment Pointer Meta Tag in "Meta Tags" box. You can enter multiple <meta /> tags here.

Congrats! Web Monetization is now active on your blog. You can visit the source code to check the existence of the tag.

Happy to answer any questions you might have -- let me know in the comments.

Sandeep Panda,

This is cool.

For everyone's clarity, could you please explain little bit more on the impact of enabling it and how this benefit can be leveraged once enabled?

Web Monetization lets your readers directly send you micropayments to support your work. For this to work, your readers must be on a web monetization enabled browser.

your article is really helpful. Thanks a lot, but isn't there an easier way to do this? like google adsense. It is used both globally and in almost all countries, moreover, it is active for all browsers.

Great article Sandeep,

How do you view the source code of the blog?

hey Apoorv Tyagi

Just right click on the webpage and click on "View page source".


Use CMD+Opt+U (mac) or Command+Shift+U (windows).

It will be nice if Hashnode allows ads in the blog. Though I hate ads, it is much easier that way.
