Become a Patron for Sabayon!

Post by Ryuno-Ki » Thu Jun 07, 2018 21:32

Today, we want to offer you a way to give back.

We know that many of you love Sabayon, but feel unable to contribute.
For those, who are looking for ways to donate, we have a page on our website. (Link will break with the next relaunch by the way).

But maybe you don't like PayPal. Or you don't have a crypto wallet.

For those cases, we can now offer you to become a Patron of Sabayon and help us cover our costs for infrastructure! (They accept PayPal and credit cards).

joost was so kind to set up an account and explain briefly our current situation.

You would help us help you if you could set up a regular donation.

Thank you from the whole staff!

Is it possible to donate, or become Patreon, without an international credit card? I live in Brazil

Interesting question!

I've searched on the web and found Do you support international payments? Can I donate in any currency?

Quoting it in full here:
All payments are charged in USD! You will be charged the US dollar value of your payment and your bank or PayPal will charge you appropriate conversion fees based on the transaction and your location.

We accept PayPal payments and also credit or debit cards via Stripe for payments, who accept the following:
  • Visa
  • Master Card
  • American Express
  • Discover
  • JCB
  • Diners Club
  • 3DS
We accept payments from Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express as well as cards from over 50 countries. We currently do not accept prepaid Visa, Mastercard, or American Express Giftcards.
Personally, I don't use a credit card at all. So I can't help you much here.

Looking at PayPal's FAQ I've learned that they have offers in different countries, including Brazil (sorry, I don't speak Portuguese).
They have different cards to choose from. I suggest you click through and look for, whether there is something, which appeases you. Come back and tell us, what and how you did it, please :-)

Does that help you?

As an alternative I setup an account on Liberapay: https://en.liberapay.com/SabayonLinux/donate
Here you can do micro donations and 100% of the money flows into the project.

(It is still a bit rough on the edges)
