Gratipay is a website for sharing money, used primarily as a way to support writers of free software. Sudoroom has an account, and it's the way many people donate money to us. Here's how:

  2. Visit, click sign in, and select your account.
  3. Your original site will ask you to approve - click confirm or approve, depending on the site
  4. You should now be logged into your new gratipay account!

Enter Credit Card

  1. Back on gratipay, click on your username to visit your new profile
  2. On your profile, scroll down and click on Credit card
  3. Enter your info and press save

Give to Sudoroom

  1. Visit Sudoroom's profile
  2. Enter an amount of money, press Enter or click Confirm
    • Remember these amounts are WEEKLY, not monthly!
    • Please give whatever you can - even a few dollars or cents helps!
    • Your card will be charged every Thursday. The money goes directly into Sudoroom's bank account.

They are pretty good about protecting your identity:
