My issue is about donating via Liberapay.
As of now, there is no way for me to know if my donation did reach the intended recipient, i.e. I am donating to K9 as well, and all I can see is on
when I click on “Einkommensverlauf anzeigen” (show income history)
how much money K9 did receive in donations.
A possible solution to this would be that on the Liberapay website, in addition to the chart showing the income per week, to add a button that can be clicked on for viewing a list containing the user names of all the donators together with the sum of the weekly donation, e.g. as a list in alphabetic order.
There is a discussion on GitHub

To reformulate, as a donnee I’d like to be forbid my donators to make a private/public donation, because of taxes purpose.
So, to make my point:
Is it true that i.e. K9, as a donnee of Liberapay, is averse to know the user names of the donors because of taxation reasons? And how could that make any sense, if the total amount of donations is publicly known anyway??
And, to come back to my initial point:
Wouldn’t you be in favor of my proposal (the added button on the Liberapay Website, see above), because it would certainly encourage more people to donate via Liberapay?
