<URGENT> New nomenclature needed for donation in preferred lingo: Payment <URGENT>

Hi, Im a brazilian streamer and many other brazilians streamers have had many problems with the nomenclatures TIP and DONATION. In Brazil our legislation does not allow donations from one person to another, because of this I was banned from PayPal and many other brazilians are having their PayPal accounts frozen until they can explain their methods to PayPal. We need a new nomenclature that configures to purchase of entertainment business like PAYMENT. So when a person goes to "donation" page, everything will appear like PAYMENT or PURCHASE. Some channels will sell their coins, other will give space for advertising messages and etc. But we really need it, because everyone is having LOT of problems because of these two words: TIP and DONATION.

    Admin response

    We have made a few changes that should be sufficient.

    1. We have made the tab at the top of the page use your username to avoid the word "Donation" or "Tip" from being used.

    2. We have added the option to change the lingo to "Custom" which will let you input whatever you would like to call it. Example: Calling it "Payment"

    All words on the tip page will use the custom word you enter.

    This word can be changed by going to: https://streamlabs.com/dashboard#/donationsettings

    and selecting "preferred lingo" and setting it to custom.

    You guys got it wrong Streamlabs.

    It's a front-end change of word, not a back-end. We'r simply asking to change the word Donation, that is translatated do portugues as Doação, to another one like Pagamento or Contribuição.

    This is decided by PayPal. Not Streamlabs.

    @murtiii10 like @Majowww said and I in this topic, PayPal is freezing all the accounts because of these two words, TIP and DONATION. We really need this! Everyday another streamer get his account blocked and need to call PayPal and explain to they why his account don't deserve this treatment. PayPal is demanding that we remove our "donation button", or we gona be banned. I already been banned from PayPal because of this, I refused to remove my donation button because is my main source of income. We need that Streamlabs put this new nomenclature ASAP. Some streamers are already moving to other services like Streamlabs that provide this kind of approach.

    Hey murtiii10! Sadly it's not enough to change to "tip". The main page name still says "Donate / Streamlabs", and paypal won't stop freezing our accounts unless it clearly says "purchase" or "payment". A ability to customize further (including the top name in attachment) would be essential.

    We're reviewing this.


    However - we already give this ability under Donation Settings: Change nomenclature to 'tip'. Is there some thing further you'd like?

    I love the power that Streamlabs give to our stream and way everyone at my community use it. But without that change asked here, i am considering to change to another service to save problems with my Paypal account. We want to keep using Streamlabs, add that option, please.
