Yes ... they trickle in now and then, but it's really nothing special. My images have been dowloaded more than 150,000 times and in that amount I've probably made around $50 in coffee tips. Those who tip are extremely kind considering the images are given up for free use. Donations are sent through PayPal, and an email address is attached in case the receiver would like to thank whoever donated. So, yes. The recipient is very much aware of coffee donations. Hope this helps ... Cheers
I've only had 18,000 downloads. I think I got tipped once.
Not a dime. And very little on other photo sites. Too much competition these days for the same location shots.
We can upload photos or other images to Pixabay or similar photo sharing sites. Photos are given a CC0, public domain licence on Pixabay. Anyone can download those photos and use them free of charge in any way they want for personal or commercial use. Visitors to the site can "buy a coffee" for the image creator on the image download page and the donation gets lodged in their PayPal account.
Around a year ago, a kind lady messaged me to inform the donation function isn't working. I thanked her but didn't follow up as I never intended for that to happen.
So far, I haven't been able to donate to anyone too.

Usually I try to use my own photos and graphics on hubs, but some photos are impractical to take, simply because the subject matter is unavailable. So I often download them from Wikimedia Commons, Pixabay or FreeDigitalPhotos. If you're good at taking photos, consider submitting them as public...

I had written 35 hubs, featured 34 of them, but for the meantime, I have unpublished all of them. I have recently found out that using images from Google are not allowed, and sites like Getty and Corbis is suing a lot of bloggers over unknowingly using their pics. It is specially difficult for me...

Twice now I have received letters from moderators indicating that they don't want me to use "so many" stock photos. This is the first time this has ever happened in almost 7 years on this site, and concerns me greatly. I am not a photographer. I have always used stock...
