For student Maggie Zhu, Tilt provides the ability to split something like a pizza order conveniently, without the hassle of “dealing with any coins or cash.” She adds, that the fee structure might be “confusing” to new users or disillusioning as users may not realize how much they’re actually spending.
Tilt is free for users looking to collect money or fundraise. There is 2.5% charge on campaigns selling tickets or merchandise, and a 3% charge for credit card users.
