Feature by feature
On Open Funding projects are funded feature by feature. That means once you have created the project you list the different features to develop, with a description on each to let people know what they're about. Plan the software and see what your users want!
Open Funding proposes to fund a service delivery and not donations to the projects. Developers are committed to their results as the users validate the result of the development. You get paid, they get the feature, everyone's happy.
Reach your community
Funding your project with Open Funding allows you to simply connect with your users and with a wider community interested in free software. But money won't come by itself. To achieve your goals, you'll have to spread the word and let the people know about your project, by promoting it in any way that help you reach them so they can fund your work. If you need more guidance in this topic, we're here to help.
All the projects on Open Funding are distributed under a free license. It's up to each developer to specify the licence they use.
On our platform users and developers exchange a product delivery, but developers also have the option to encourage their funders through bonus rewards. This can mean goodies (e.g. t-shirts of your project), technical support, or anything you imagine. Be creative to bring the attention in to your project.
