We're building the toolset to help make Open Source sustainable.
We're building tools that make it really easy to monetise your expertise in Open Source projects.
Every Expert on Ringer is verified as an Author, Maintainer or Contributor.
If you contribute to Open Source, you can add yourself as an expert to the packages that you know inside out.
International Payments a hassle? Waiting 90 days for a bank transfer? Fighting your way through procurement? Not anymore.
We make it easy to accept card payments immediately. We charge customers upfront and Stripe holds the funds until the request is marked as complete. Then you get paid within 5 days. Across over 100 countries.
Quickly create links for just about anything
You know how best to deliver your expertise. By default, we arrange a paid 30 minute video call to discuss your customer's issues and requirements. With Custom Links you can do so much more.
We keep everything transparent. No complicated tiering structures, no banding based on hours worked.
Set your fee for a 30 minute call. When you a customer sends a request, we take payment and hold the money. Once you've had the call, we pay you, immediately.
If the issue requires more work, you can send a quote through Ringer for a project fee.
We charge a 15% fee directly to the user seeking help, and of that 15% we give 5% (33.33˙% of the 15%) back to the project that the request is regarding.
We know that a high number of contributors can't accept payment for their work on open source projects.
We also allow you to set your payouts to go either directly to the project that you are providing support on, or to a number of open source foundations.
