How to monetize a chrome extension with few hundred weekly active users?

Hi folks. I have a chrome extension which currently has around 180 weekly active users. Although I had developed this extension for fun and not for money, now I'm thinking if there's a way to make money out of this. I would love to hear your stories if you were able to monetize your extension with few hundred weekly active users.

Ads I guess. But IMO they kinda suck. You could also just try to ask for donations.

I already have the donate button. But none of my customers have donated anything :)
I'm also checking this Amazon Affiliate program now.

In that case I don’t think there’s much more you can do except for mining cryptocurrency, which without consent is quite immoral, and not that efficient without many users.
