//update: This doesn’t work anymore. Quote from the website: „aFlattr is currently unavailable. Due to the termination of the operating agreement from Amazon aFlattr is not operating right now and the future is not yet clear.“
1. I listen to a lot of podcasts and would like to thank them by throwing them a coin in their hat but don’t really have money left to spend.
2. I also buy something at Amazon nearly every month, be it for university or private, for work or friends(-> I get the money back)
Most of the (German) podcasts have a rel:payment-tag in their feeds and use it for the Swedish micopayment system flattr. This enables me to just press a button in my podcatcher.
The website and Firefox plugin aFlattr generates affiliate links for the stuff I buy on amazon and sends the money to my flattr account. That way I give away some money by buying stuff 🙂
