Signing up for GitHub Sponsors just got easier

We’ve simplified the signup flow to make it easier for maintainers to join Sponsors. If you’re in a supported region, your profile will be accepted immediately.

If you live in a region that isn’t already supported by GitHub Sponsors, you can sign up for the waitlist to participate in GitHub Sponsors. For a list of supported regions, see GitHub Sponsors.
