Over the past year, there’s been a growing debate around how add-on developers can receive compensation for the work they put into their add-ons.
That’s why we’re looking to launch a contributions pilot by the end of June. This pilot will allow participating developers to request voluntary contributions from users in a way that helps explain how those financial contributions help with the development of an add-on. We know that there are great stories about add-ons, and we want to help developers tell them by explaining why they created an add-on and where they plan on going next.
For users, contributions will be optional — they can choose to contribute nothing, or even increase their contribution to an amount they feel appropriately reflects the value they get from the add-on. We think this is a way for members of our community to participate in the ongoing development of the add-ons they enjoy using.
More details will come soon, but for now please fill out this form if you’re an add-on developer and want to participate in our pilot.
