Reddit Tip button shows only on my own comments

Description of the issue:
Hi team, not sure if posted before, couldn’t find anything other than a mention on a really old topic that was not even relevant to this problem here: CSS bug in Reddit tipping button

Problem is with “Tip” button on Reddit. It’s visible to all posts but when it comes to comments it’s ONLY visible on my own comments and not on other users comments.

On the screenshot the top comment is mine where the “Tip” button is visible. But on the comment under it there is no “Tip” button. What’s the purpose of tipping myself? :slight_smile:

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Reddit is connected with my “Creators account”. Tried from mobile browser result is the same. Tried from another PC, also same results.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
See the “Tip” button under every comment on Reddit posts.

Reproduces how often:
Happens with all comments.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10.
Brave Version:
Version 1.18.78 Chromium: 87.0.4280.141 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:


I believe you can only tip someone if that person also has brave. You can tip yourself because you have a brave, but for someone that doesn’t have it you cannot tip them. This would explain why it happens in all your platforms.
Try to go to the following reddit post and search for my comment, my name is “DoruSonic”, and see if you see the tip icon.
Note: I see it on myself on pc but not on mobile.

I don’t see it…
(Brave 1.19.92 Windows 10)

hey, as gmacar mentions below the Tip button doesn’t show, checked myself as well


This is not accurate, on Twitter i can see the Tip on all tweets and try to tip them, if they have or not a creators account then it will say that on the pop up of the payment, BUT the “Tip” button is ALWAYS there on twitter.

Just found out that the “Tip” button is visible on the comment history section of an account. You can Tip a comment by browsing the comment history of a user but you cannot Tip directly on the comments under a post.

Any thoughts or solutions to that?
