I emailed Flattr support the following message:

I think it'd be very good for your service to accept bitcoin. Then the receiver could choose to receive their payments in bitcoin if they choose so when the Flattr was made in bitcoin. They are many merchent services now that will allow you to accept bitcoin and be paid in USD. Which all work out cheaper than PayPal or Visa.

And got the following reply:

That would be amazing. Flattr feels like exactly the place where I'd like to trade BTC. It's a place that seems likely to be worthwhile for easy electronic contribution.

I work on Gittip, which is a similar-but-different service. We've been wanting to add Bitcoin support for some time, but due to the recurrent nature of what we do, we've not come up with a good solution. I suspect Flattr is struggling with the issues, and I'm interested to see how they implement it.

If you want to get involved in the conversation around Gittip's Bitcoin implementation, check out Github. There are separate conversations going on for incoming and outgoing payments.

Flattr is really a nice idea and ideal for Bitcoin micropayments on the Net. Lets award good content (also an opportunity for the press).

To be honest, I always wondered why flattr didn't support bitcoin right from the start. This really was about time.

they are considering since 4 month
http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/149q2f/flattr_is_considering_bitcoin_integration/

i am losing faith

is it really that hard? with bitpay it should be easy to pay into flattr
i don't care about payouts because i am only paying into that nice system

there are 2 options:
1. they start accepting soon
2. someone clones the idea and makes it bitcoin only, i guess it would spread well inside the community

If I lived within commuting distance of London I would have loved to come.  Did you get any extra info?

flattr now officially accept funding through bitcoins.  Tho I don't know if they pay out with bitcoins yet?  Could be a great way for not for profit bitcoin projects to get funding.
