Have You Ever Donated Cash To A WordPress Plugin Author? By jeffcSeptember 1, 2008July 11, 2009WordPress Author: jeffc
I have donated 3 or 4 times Automatic Upgrade being my 1st. Usually around $10. Before I purchased a premium theme I would often donate to theme developers who assisted with support. Those amounts could be $25-$50 for help.
I just donated $50.00 to Lester Gamerz Chen for his awesome plugins and willingness to keep them updated with newer versions of WordPress.
I can’t say I’ve done it for every plugin, but I’ve done it for quite a few. Usually around $5.
Developers who give their free time for everyone else to make it easier for the rest of us are gold dust and deserve everything they get
If there’s a plug-in that makes my blog better or life easier – and why download anything else? – I absolutely donate. It shows support and might encourage further development. People should get paid for their time.
Well not really donated. . .but paid for a premium plugin. . .and paid more for custom work. First time ever. I wouldn’t recommend it unless your revenue is able to compensate your wallet.
I have. Ended up giving Lester Chanz about $20.00 through PayPal.
