I have a question for the Coil team - what happens if you pay the $5 fee, but then don't visit enough pages with web monetisation enabled to actually spend it all? Where does the rest of the money go?

Great question Emma- its one that we've spent a bunch of time thinking through.

The unused membership fee will either be redistributed to creators or it will go to the creator who originally drove you to sign up and become a member. Example: if DEV is the reason you clicked through and became a Coil member then DEV would receive this money.
This may evolve over timeβ€” but one important constant is that unspent membership fees do NOT go to Coil.
