I want to build some tools for my alliance, am I allowed to get paid for my work?

Hi all,

Looking at the EVE developer page, it says I can’t charge for my applications – I’m assuming what this means is that you can’t charge users money to use the app. I just want to make sure that they’re not saying I’m not allowed to get paid to build something in the first place.

The latter seems unenforceable, and I doubt that’s how it is … but someone I know is saying that’s the case.

If anyone can give me some concrete confirmation that would be cool.


Best to ask in a support ticket to get an official answer as fast as possible.

If someone wants to pay you RL money to develop an application for them, that’s also probably fine. The First QA is mainly around “I have an application and I charge you $5 a month to use it”.

But i would do as @Uriel_the_Flame suggested and create a support ticket for an official answer.

EDIT: Voluntary donations of RL money are also allowed. But they must be voluntary and not provide any benefit/special access.
