Open Source Collective
We process payouts twice a week after they have been approved by the admin of the Collective. We make payments via PayPal and Bank Transfer (using Wise), and can only make payouts to countries served by these payment processors. You are not required to upload an invoice document (the data you submit in the expense form is sufficient) but if you would like to include an uploaded invoice, please make it out to: Collective Name, Open Source Collective, 440 N. Barranca Avenue #3717, Covina, CA 91723, USA
Here are examples of what a Reimbursement or Invoice needs to contain in order for us to process it for payment.
If you would like a refund, email [email protected] with the # of the transaction, the collective you made the donation to, the date and the amount of the transaction.
Expenses need to be pre-approved using the same process we use for approving changes to the standard. See:
Guidelines for expense limits:
- $700 for each one-time expense (e.g. a bug/feature bounty)
- $100 / month recurring expense (e.g. pay for hosting or build machines)
We do not yet cover stipends for contributors
You can pre-approve an expense by creating a Discourse thread:
… answering the following questions:
- What purpose is the expense for?
- Is this a one-time or recurring expense?
- What is the amount that you wish to expense?
Don't be afraid to ask! We'll do our best to work something out
How do I get paid from a Collective?
