We started as a publisher, and still run ethical ads on all our sites. We believe in supporting open source, because we're open source devs ourselves.
One tasteful ad
We only show one ad per page, because developers don't want ads all over their sites. Advertising is a trade-off that we choose, to make our projects more sustainable. We don't compromise on privacy though.
We currently support payment via PayPal, OpenCollective, and Wire transfer. Our minimum payment to publishers is currently $50. We're still getting our payment systems automated, so this number will probably get lower in the future.
