BountyFunding

logo-200-blackOver last few months I have been working on a new project called BountyFunding – a free / open-source bounty crowdfunding platform. It allows users to collectively sponsor most wanted features or bugfixes and gives developers additional source of income. It is tailored specifically for free / open-source projects and is licensed under AGPL itself. BountyFunding integrates with existing issue tracking system to create seamless user experience and allow its community to retain full control over the development process. See http://bountyfunding.org for more details.

Paypal Sandbox Account

paypal-sandboxFor a few days I was trying to create Paypal sandbox account only to see the following message every time: “We’re sorry but something went wrong. Please delete this account and try again.” It looks like the form does not validate the input, but in reality every field is checked in a perverse way (from discussions on the internet I suspect that the rules change from time to time to increase confusion;)

I will get straight to the point and show you user details that worked for me – that should give you good starting point to create your test account:

  • Country: France
  • Account Type: Personal
  • Email Address: paypal@loomchild.net
  • Password: developer
  • First Name: (leave empty)
  • Last Name: (leave empty – for PayPal optional means forbidden)
  • PayPal balance: 1000
  • Bank verified account: Yes
  • Credit card type: Visa
