How can you set it up?
You can do this just by activating the payment request feature first. To know how just keep on reading!
What are private payments?
You might be a bit confused as to how it really works.
Well, you can use the RumbleTalk chat for charging for your time. For example, if you’re a trade expert and you’re chatting privately with a customer, you can request him a payment for your additional time. Moreover, this can be useful for professionals like counselors, therapists, and experts in their respective fields.
If you’re more of a group chat person, you can use it for charging for your knowledge on a certain topic. For instance, let’s say that you’re in a group chat for trading and you talk about tips, right? Then, one of the members of the group is impressed with your tips and wants to talk to you in private. So, this is your opportunity to ask him/her for payment if he/she wants some additional tips besides what you’ve said in the group chat. As a result, that’s how you realize the worth of your knowledge.
Did I explain it clearly? Do you understand it better? If yes, then let’s go to how you can actually use it!
