Organizations on Open Collective are not the same as Organizations on GitHub. You must create a Collective in order to manage your project's finances on Open Collective.
To register for GitHub Sponsors follow these steps:
Visit github.com/sponsors and sign your Github organization up for the Sponsors waitlist:
- Select: "This organization is using a fiscal host" and select Open Source Collective from the menu.
- Add your Collective's URL to the 'Fiscal host project profile URL' box for example: https://opencollective.com/babel
Be sure to select 'Open Source Collective' from the dropdown.
Click Join Waitlist.
GitHub staff will review your application, and you'll be notified when you can proceed to the next step.
Open Source Collective acts as your legal and financial home. You do not need to enter your own Stripe account or business information.
If you reach this step please contact [email protected] and we will amend your application with GitHub.
Receiving Financial Contributions
GitHub processes payments to GitHub Sponsors participants on a monthly basis. We allocate these payments when we receive them, typically on the 27th of each month.
Funds will be automatically added to Collectives' balance, minus our 10% administration fee, at the end of each month. 'GitHub Sponsors' will be indicated as the source of the funds.
