Flattr does not work for organizations
I am owner of http://checkstyle.sourceforge.net/ project. I would like to have some fund raising events to boost development process and let other people sponsor development of issues they want to be fixed.
Is there a way to register as organization and bind person (sponsor) that want to pay money with person (developer) who can fix a bug at our project?
So people(sponsor) flatters certain github issues, project developers do a work, money come directly to project developer accounts (without any common account) so certain project developer responsible for tax reporting and organization is not related to this at all.
thanks, Roman Ivanov
Sorry but what you suggest is not possible to do with Flattr, we do not have any API endpoints to perform transactions between accounts. For something like this I think you will have to turn to using eg PayPal or something like https://www.bountysource.com
Resolution: I added my private flatter account, will use it for route funds to contributors.
