Facebook-owned photo-messaging app Instagram is reportedly testing a donation sticker on its Stories feature that would offer fundraising and donation tools for charity or personal reasons. The feature seems similar to what Facebook offers with its fundraising and donation tools. Facebook has been hosting such fundraising tools since 2015 and it recently dropped fees associated with those donations.
Reverse-engineering specialist Jane Manchun Wong on Monday tweeted a screenshot. Instagram later confirmed it is testing the feature and hopes to bring it to all users “later this year.”
“We are in early stages and working hard to bring this experience to our community,” according to a company statement, published by 9to5Mac.
“Later this year, people will be able to raise money and help support nonprofits that are important to them through a donation sticker in Instagram Stories,” it continued. “We’re excited to bring this experience to our community and will share more updates in the coming months.”
