This is pretty straight-forward. You can click on the main banner area to add a banner. You can click on the circle to add an avatar-type image. You can give the visitors a nice little message that let’s them know how you feel that they’re close to tipping you. Or give them a dirty message. Who cares, right? Heh. You may also add YouTube, Twitter, and Twitch links on your Tipping Banner, as well.

Finally, you may set tip amount options. Brave does not allow Creators to manually set the values here currently. However, you may choose one of four options. Choose what you think is best for yourself.
