TL;DR for people who use Liberapay to receive donations: go to and connect at least one Stripe or PayPal account, otherwise new donations to you can't be processed.


@Liberapay So we won't see anything more privacy-friendly then the two? Many of us who have setup Liberapay to support our FOSS projects have strong objections towards Paypal. And from what I've heard so far, Stripe isn't really that much better.

I know it's not your fault that Mangopay closed its doors on you. But the current situation is quite disappointing. Refusing the two, many of us cannot receive funding via Liberapay now.

@IzzyOnDroid @Liberapay agreed. #PayPal (& #Venmo) is $hit & nothing more than a clearinghouse for finavial data to sell our financial transactions to #databrokers. & #Stripe is #Twitter (owned by Jack) but for your transactions too. #Privacy
