How it works
Add a badge to README.md
After signing up, you’ll receive a personalized code snippet that you can add to your GitHub README.md file.
Each time someone visits your repository page, sponsor badge will be loaded. Every time a sponsor badge is shown on your repository page, you’ll receive funds.
Choose your sponsors
We choose our partners carefully. Only companies with products or services relevant to the tech community are part of our partnership network.
HiveFive gives you the power to choose which companies you want as sponsors. From your dashboard, simply whitelist or blacklist individual sponsors.
The more traffic your repository has, the more funds you receive. On average, you’ll earn approximately $1 for every 1000 times sponsor badge is displayed.*
By the 15th of each month, you will receive funds for badges served the previous month. At any point in time, you can withdraw funds to your PayPal account.
* We track the number of times sponsor badge is served but we also take your audience engagement rate into consideration.
Working on personal projects is hard.
Between the jobs and day-to-day activities, we get less and less time to invest in ideas we are truly passionate about.
This is why 72% of developers abandon their personal projects at some point. Some of those projects could very well be next Vue or Express or any other impactful project that we embraced as a community.
The minimum amount you’ll be able to withdraw is $3 due to processing fees.
