Frequently Asked Questions

To only browse the shows on Starastar, or to donate, you don't need to register.

When you are an unknown artist, no one will pay much attention or money to your art. But to get all the recognition your hard work and artistic talent deserve, you need more visibility, more social encouragement and some financial support too!... Furthermore, if you simply want to use your talent for a good cause like helping someone else (by sharing part of your donations for example), you can also do that easily on Starastar!

  1. Dance, play music, sing, read poems, tell stories (or jokes!)...
  2. Show and comment a performance of yours or of someone else; give a tour of your working studio or of your gallery...
  3. Talk about the history or story behind one of your creations; get interviewed by a friend or interview another artist; demonstrate, teach some of your skills...
  4. Show a short film, a documentary, animated, time-lapse; share your acting reel or your modeling portfolio. Sky's the limit, just be yourself and have some fun!

Once you created and published your first show on Starastar, it may run indefinitely unless yourself decide to delete it.

Be aware though that the more Stars you are receiving, the higher your Show will rank in the public eye...

When your show hasn't receivend a donation for a while, you may see a warning message when you login to encourage you to Share again...

Naturally you can also decide to create a new Show at any time!

  • For a new Show to rank well on Starastar, it is crucial to share it at first with your closest friends and family and by doing so, to ask them to give you your first stars already. So, when your new fans will see that your Show collected a few stars ($$) already, they will be more inclined to give as well.
  • From the beginning, get into the habit to always ask your friends to also share the link of your Show with their own friends; if they cannot donate at the moment, your Show will at least be shared and seen by many people quickly...
  • The key for getting More SHARES and More STARS from your fans is to grab their attention first visually. Every time (at least once a day if possible) engage them with a new picture: this can be of you and/or of your art, or also of the places you are practicing, performing, or just enjoying your life, as an artist of course, but also as a human being! Your fans will like that for they always want to know you more, so that they can feel that they're part of your life, that they are important to your happiness and success!... And with your picture, write only some short comment or nice quote. Ideally, post shortly, visually and daily! Doing so you'll get more Likes, Shares and Comments, which will greatly increase the visibility of your Show to all!
  • Never post about your show and forget about it. Especially with Facebook, because of their last algorithm, your posts are only seen by a few of your friends every time you are posting, not only you shouldn't be shy to give some news often, but also, it's very important that you constantly interact with your fans, especially with the ones who took the time to write a comment...
  • Finally, share also offline; write your Show's Link on a piece of paper or in your telephone and keep it on you all the time so that you'll be ready to give it to the next person you'll be talking to.
  • THANK your supporters! ALWAYS! Thank them collectively, for example in a 'Give some news' posting, and individually, like in a private message to a recent donor. It's indeed very important that all your fans and donors feel how much you appreciate their support as much as they appreciate your talent.
  • INTERACT... A LOT! and have fun with it! To make feel all your fans like they are part of your growing success, always keep the conversation going. After creating a new Show, share it, or give some news about your creative life at least ONCE A DAY, which is actually easy to do via the sharing options on Starastar! ;-)
  • Reply to any comments, compliments, questions. It's also a good idea that you join some artistic groups you like on Facebook and share reciprocally and regularly with their members...

Nobody else but you will always own the intellectual property of your Show on Starastar. We respect and expect you to respect all the rights of copyright holders; thus it's also your responsibility to ensure that any content you publish on the platform is not violating any copyright of anybody else either (i.e. using in your video a song of another artist but without any permission). On another side, if you believe that your copyright rights are being violated anywhere on Starastar, please read carefully the 'Copyright Complaints' paragraph in our Terms of Use.

You will never receive any bills and It will always be free to create as many shows as you want on Starastar. Only when you'll withdraw your donations' money, about 9 -10 % will automatically be deducted from each donation; this percentage is not always the same because it depends on where you’re located and where the donor is, due to currency exchanges, but it's mainly covering the fees and commissions of all the payment processing companies involved, the rest going to the smooth running and ongoing improvement of the platform.

Starastar cannot give you legal advice. Money received from donation-based fundraising are likely to be considered non-taxable gifts, and a gift is generally defined for federal income taxes as an amount transferred 'out of detached and disinterested generosity' which is the case when receiving donations via Starastar. However, because everyone's tax situation is different, you should ask advice about your situation to a licensed tax advisor of your own jurisdiction.
