If you have a Youtube channel, Fan Funding is now out of testing and available for everyone (well, almost; you need to be in the US and be in good standing):

Basically, it's a tip jar, separate from ad revenue, so if you put up any free content it's another revenue source.  You'll have to set up a Google Wallet account, but the nice thing is it looks like you only need $1 for them to do a monthly payout (as opposed to the $100 you need from ad revenue; I'm looking forward to buying 10 months of Spotify sometime around 2019).

seems to be limited to who can pay into it, I know at least one channel who uses it but the option to pay is hidden to me.
