How is revenue I generate distributed?

See our how it works page for a detailed breakdown of how revenue is distributed to the packages you use.


Why can't I see the amount of ad revenue I've generated for Open Source in the user portal?

We only display the previous month's impact in the user portal. This may change in the future.


What data do you collect and why?

The package manager wrapper reports which top-level packages were installed. This is used for determining which packages should receive the revenue generated. Additionally, the version of the package manager used is recorded for debugging purposes. Our package manager wrapper is open source, so feel free to inspect the code on GitHub.
