SimSig is entirely supported by donations and advertising banners. If you download a simulation and like it, please consider the time and effort that a developer has gone to in order to create that simulation. The developer will have have incurred costs of his/her own in order to create the simulation you are now enjoying, such as transportation costs to research the location (often many times to get as much information as possible).
Any donations you make will go mostly to the developer of that simulation but a small amount will be retained to help pay for the website and our own costs associated with SimSig such as purchasing of development software. We accept payment via PayPal, through which donations will initially go to SimSig Ltd. From there I distribute the donations to the appropriate parties. Those parties will have full visibility of funds to ensure fair play.
I hate to ask for donations but advertising alone does not always pay for the bandwidth of the website, let alone research trips and materials for the creation of new simulations.
People who donate £10 or more, or who have donated £10 or more in the past, may be offered exclusive previews or other exciting things that non-donors will be ineligable for, so make a donation now!
With that over with, I hope you are able to support future development of SimSig. Remember that other products on the market can cost £20-£30 or more just for the simulation - often only part of a signalbox, and then you might need to pay to buy a timetable editor or even pay to buy additional timetables.
If you would like to make a donation to the developers, please visit the Shop and choose which simulations to donate to. Note that a PayPal account is not required - you can pay by credit or debit card without logging in.
Please do not send cheques or use any other payment method.
Many thanks and happy SimSigging!
