10er is an open start-up. On this page you can see how much money it makes, how much activity there is and some of what it costs to run.
10er is a business. The projects pay 10% to use the service. Here's the monthly income since the project's beginning. (This is my cut with VAT):
💡 Fun fact: Many projects release episodes on fridays so months with 5 fridays have historically had higher income.
💡 Fun fact: At least 152 are podcasts and receive donations per episode. 48 receives donations per month.
💡 Fun fact: If a subscription fails for 3 months in a row it gets suspended. This explains drops in subscription counts in the beginning of months.

Supporting Open Source
10er is built on top of many other people's Open Source work.
Supporting a better world
10er only works because the people who can afford to give choose to do so. In that same spirit, I choose to redistribute some of the money that I make in the process to worthy causes.
