GitHub Sponsors
How to get sponsorships on GitHub through Fidia.
​GitHub Sponsors allows the developer community to financially support the people and organizations who design, build, and maintain the open-source projects they depend on, directly on GitHub.
In this guide, you will learn how to set up the GitHub Sponsor button on your GitHub repository using Fidia payment links as a custom funding URL.
Create a payment link on Fidia and copy the payment link which will be needed to set up the sponsor button on GitHub.
Setting up the Payment Link on GitHub
  • On GitHub, navigate to the main page of the repository you want to enable sponsorship for.
  • Under your repository name, click on the Settings tab.
  • Scroll down to the Features section, select Sponsorships by clicking on the checkbox.
  • Under “Sponsorships”, click on the Setup sponsor button to continue.
  • In the file editor, edit the custom funding link on line 12 by adding your Fidia payment link to it.
Replace the Fidia payment link in the above code block with your own Fidia payment link.
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and type a short, meaningful commit message describing the change you made to the file. Then click on the commit new file button.
  • After committing the changes, you will notice that the sponsor button is now displayed on your repository.
Also, the sponsor button will appear on the repository you added it to and also in the project description section with the title “sponsor this project” under the about section.
  • When a supporter clicks on the sponsor button, they will be able to see the Fidia payment link you added.
You can view the demo of the sponsor button on the repository here.
