Git is a system that tracks changes in source code throughout the software development process. This type of workflow ficilitates collaboration while tracking critical changes.
On the GitCommits platform, a Product Owner is able to post and fund issues they need completed. A Product Owner can be an individual or an organization that needs development work completed.
Many Product Owners may have an existing Git repository with a backlog of issues. On GitCommits, these can be posted with a bounty!
Right now, GitCommits supports GitHub.
Soon, BitBucket and GitLab will be supported as well.
No. There are no fees to post issues on GitCommits.
To create a great bounty that attracts the ideal Contributors, there are a few things you should keep in mind:
Yes. Contributors pay a fee of 5% to GitCommits. The fees allows us to maintain the GitCommits platform, improve our app, and provide customer support to our users.
You will also pay a PayPal fee for processing, which is based on your account rate with PayPal.
The total typically comes to ~8% – 10%.
As you grow on the platform and process more orders, your rates with both GitCommits and PayPal can be lowered.
There are two types of bounties: Traditional and Contest.
Traditional bounties have one worker, which means one person is paid.
Contests could have multiple workers, but only one Contributor walks away with the bounty.
