Introduce "Mozilla Pay", a universal, single-click payment solution that seamlessly integrates with existing payment systems. This feature, which can be incorporated into any browser, simplifies payments for online content, covering both subscription-based services and individual website payments. Additionally, it supports Mozilla's ongoing development through a transaction fee component.


  1. Interoperability with Existing Payment Systems: Mozilla Pay can connect to a wide range of existing payment solutions, including credit cards, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and more. This enables users to choose their preferred payment method for even greater convenience.

  2. Subscription-Based Services: Users can opt for a monthly Mozilla Pay service. This subscription allows them to access and pay for content across various websites with a single click.

  3. Individual Website Payments: Users also have the option to support individual websites directly. Payments can be one-time or recurring, depending on the user's preference and the website's payment model.

  4. Transaction Fee for Mozilla Development: A small percentage of each transaction made through Mozilla Pay will be allocated as a fee. These funds will be directed towards supporting the ongoing development and maintenance of Mozilla and its various initiatives.

Universal Applicability:

The aim is for Mozilla Pay to become a universal standard across all internet browsers. This would require collaboration with other browser developers, content creators, website owners, and standard-setting organizations.


Mozilla Pay would provide a clear, privacy-respecting, and flexible revenue model for content creators and website owners. Users who pay for content, either through a subscription or individual payments, can enjoy an ad-free and non-intrusive browsing experience. The transaction fee component would help sustain Mozilla's development, promoting a healthier, more user-friendly internet ecosystem.


The realization of Mozilla Pay as a universal internet standard necessitates cooperation from a wide range of stakeholders, including other browser developers, content creators, website owners, and standard-setting organizations. Mozilla would lead the initiative, develop an easy-to-use interface for the payment system, and advocate for its widespread adoption.

By connecting with existing payment solutions and providing a flexible, user-supported model for content monetization, Mozilla Pay can revolutionize the way internet content is paid for, benefiting users, content creators, publishers, and the Mozilla project itself.

It would be an idea if Mozilla also made it so that you could use Mozilla pay (if it becomes a thing) to make NFC payments on Android and possibly Linux OSs (like Ubuntu Touch), like how you can with Google pay/Samsung Wallet

Cool idea!
