How does billing work?

As the title says, how does the billing system work? Do you have to have a x amount of weekly downloads or how do you earn money from packages?


Billing for what? npm Open Source and npm Orgs and npm Enterprise?

Open Source, when going to my profile there’s monthly billings etc. Is there any requirements to earn money or can you even earn money at all?


The Billing Information on npmjs.org is about how much you pay, you can not currently earn money there.

There was a recent npm blog talking about future ideas for supporting open source maintainers, which you might be thinking of, with details coming by the end of this year: https://blog.npmjs.org/post/187382017885/supporting-open-source-maintainers
