SUPPORT THE PROJECT
DWSIM for Windows/Linux/macOS is open-source software and will always be.
If DWSIM is or was useful to you in any way, please consider making a donation using PayPal or through the Gumroad download system when you download an installation package.
When you donate to DWSIM project, you donate directly to me, Daniel Wagner Oliveira de Medeiros, the main developer, site mantainer, project manager, etc...
Donations made through the Gumroad download system will be transferred to my PayPal account once in a week. Donations made through the PayPal button go to my PayPal account (obviously), then are transferred to my bank account. Almost 15% of what you donate is "lost" in transaction fees and currency conversion rates.
Donations are for me as an individual and thus each donation supports everything I do, i.e. they help me pay my bills at the end of the month among other stuff. I also donate to some charity campaigns but these donations are personal, they have nothing to to with DWSIM and thus do not depend on the donations I receive from it.
