Donations is probably the most common way to monetize OSS, but only 1 of 1000 OSS users donate to support developers (source: networkworld.com). Such a small number can be partly explained by non-transparent system of donations allocation and distribution: users are uncertain whether their donations will facilitate project development and help solve real problems. A huge part of non-donation monetization models is based on financial support from solution providers, which utilize OSS or provide related service. In such models only a small fraction of investments goes directly to the software developers, while the larger part goes to those who sell, set-up and support the product. We believe developers could deliver much better solutions, if they are paid accordingly. Clear, transparent, fair and scalable monetization model is a key to attract earlystage funding and significantly improve quality of software. Emergence of such models will disrupt entire software market; a big piece of $3.5 trillion worth to change hands. We created OpenGift to offer the solution to the OSS monetization issue.
Donation-on-goal is a central feature of OpenGift platform, it’s not nearly enough for open source projects to compete with proprietary software rivals. Organizations are getting paid for software development exactly because they are organizations. Thanks to established business processes and capacity to leverage external resources they can deliver solutions with quality and time predictable for clients, and provide add-on services like preparing documentation, providing training and support.
