To use Coil as a subscriber you must install the Coil Extension. You can download the Extension from Supported Devices & Browsers.
How it works:
- The Coil Extension checks if a page has included the web monetization meta tag.
- If the page has the meta tag, then the extension tells Coil to start paying over Interledger to the payment pointer in the tag.
- As long as you're active on the page, it will keep streaming payments.
- If you leave the page, background the page, or if you're inactive on the page for long enough then the extension will stop paying.
