A question for @laurent
Up until today I used to make an annual donation to Joplin, via Paypal, equivalent to what I used to pay for my Evernote Plus subscription. To me that seemed fair for what I was getting out of your work.
Today I decided to convert that to a monthly Patreon payment. I just thought that regular income for Joplin would be a better option.
It was only afterwards that I started to wonder who takes the biggest cut. So what gives Joplin the biggest return for any funds donated; a direct PayPal payment or a Patreon monthly payment?
I am not expecting a detailed answer. Something like PayPal, Patreon, Same would be perfectly adequate
As an aside I would also to encourage those who have never donated or those who haven’t donated for a long time to reflect upon what value they are getting from Joplin and think about whether it is worth throwing a few dollars / pounds / <insert your currency here> in Joplin’s direction.
(Note: This is a serious question regarding what gives the better return on donations. Also I have not been encouraged to post this by anyone. It is a personal opinion that those who commit a lot of their own time to provide something I find good and useful should get some funding to enable them to carry on their excellent work.)
