Business Model

Although animated by a largely volunteer community of contributors, a project like Piwigo is not free to run: web servers, domain names, development time or website management. How is the project viable at money level?

Donations

The Piwigo Association collects donations from its community of users. This money is used to pay direct fees such as web servers hosting, domain names or mobile application store subscriptions. Your financial contribution would mark your commitment to the project.

Piwigo.com

Profits generated make it possible to spend some time on Piwigo. For example Pierrick, creator of Piwigo and now paid thanks to Piwigo.com, can work on Piwigo.org. The two projects thus maintain a virtuous circle: the success of one leads to the success of the other, and vice versa.

Services

Some coders and theme creators are paid by customers to create new features. Most of the time, these creations are also available to the Piwigo community as a whole.

Want to be part of the adventure?

The Piwigo project needs various skills, such as coders, designers, documentation writers, helpers. If you believe in our mission, be part of it :-)
