Our philosophy is simple: charge people who can afford Hotpot and help those who cannot.

Hotpot is proud to support budding entrepreneurs in Ghana, Nigeria, and other developing nations with aggressively affordable prices. Some question charging $1 per graphic because Stripe refuses to support microtransactions and extracts a painful 32.9% per transaction. Increasing prices by $1 to offset Stripe fees would be tolerable for users in America and advanced nations, but for millions of others, $1 is comparable to a full day's wage.
