Open Source Collective
We process payouts twice a week after they have been approved by the admin of the Collective. We make payments via PayPal and Bank Transfer (using Wise), and can only make payouts to countries served by these payment processors. You are not required to upload an invoice document (the data you submit in the expense form is sufficient) but if you would like to include an uploaded invoice, please make it out to: Collective Name, Open Source Collective, 440 N. Barranca Avenue #3717, Covina, CA 91723, USA
Here are examples of what a Reimbursement or Invoice needs to contain in order for us to process it for payment.
If you would like a refund, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the # of the transaction, the collective you made the donation to, the date and the amount of the transaction.
- Create a Pull Request that fixes a ticket with the “$$ bug-bounty $$” label.
- In order to close the ticket automatically, you must have one commit message with the Fix keyword. For example, Fix #1234 to close ticket #1234.
- That Pull Request must be merged by someone from the core team. If there are several Pull Requests, the core team member either selects the most recent one or the best one - that’s up to them to decide what is best for the project.
- You can then add an expense for the bounty amount on the JHipster OpenCollective. You must add a link to your Pull Request in the description (for example, a $100 bug bounty claim for https://github.com/jhipster/generator-jhipster/pull/1234). You will also need to provide an invoice, see the Open Collective FAQ for expenses for more details, and to get a Google Docs template that you can use.
- Then, you must add a comment on your Pull Request, telling that you claimed the money, with a link to your OpenCollective expense. This is to be sure it is the same person who fixed the issue and claimed the money.
- That expense will then be validated by @jdubois, @deepu105, or @pascalgrimaud and you will receive your money on your Paypal/bank account.
