Area Paypal donation links acceptable? Answered

Is it acceptable to request Paypal donations in the how-to guides we create (via a link)? Similarly, is it acceptable to offer completed versions of the item for sale within the guide?


The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

Both are acceptable.

A few authors have tried the paypal donation route in the past, and it has not yielded results. Selling an item, however, is a mixed bag with extreme success from authors such as ladyada and not so extreme success from others. If your item fits the guidelines, you might try Etsy as a way to sell, with links to your item on Etsy from Instructables.
