The creator of Liberapay actually opened this as an issue because they didn't want to just offer Stripe and Paypal. If people have better alternatives, Liberapay is literally asking you to tell them:


Apparently a big part of the problem is that almost no payment systems offer normal currencies globally, Paypal and Stripe are AFAIK the only two?

Most alternatives are only available in certain regions.

@setto @cadadr @FediFollows @rysiek @Liberapay @sjb I will make a comment on there soon. I also wanted to share this open source payment gateway. I’m not sure if any of you are developers, but maybe you know someone that can get some use out of an open source alternative unipaygateway.com/reduce-proce

@weirdwriter @setto @cadadr@toot.cat @FediFollows @rysiek @Liberapay @sjb

Great. I added Comradery for inclusion to curated list.


I couldn't find source at UniPay, btw. If anyone has more funding-related resources, please add them to the issue. I am a bit behind in maintaining the list, but every entry I encounter, I record.

Delightful project is for FOSS, Open Data and Open Science related resources.


@humanetech @weirdwriter @setto @cadadr @FediFollows @rysiek @Liberapay @sjb Great list, but I had to suggest an addition there.

I'm excited that the IETF has standardized payto: URIs! So is GNU Taler! They'll work in my browser engines, provided you've got a banking app installed.


@alcinnz @weirdwriter @setto @cadadr@toot.cat @FediFollows @rysiek @Liberapay @sjb

Oh wow, thanks. That is delightful. The other day I tooted about Stripe with their Payment Links where I did not see mention of this.


Either they'll ignore this draft, maybe even when it becomes standard and adopted, or they intend to have such a market position at that time to be top dominator (hiding stuff deep in a SDK or something).

@humanetech I definitely hope Stripe at least adds support for payto: as a payment source. Going beyond that might be on the banks... Or cryptocurrency...
