Techopedia Explains BeggarwareBeggarware usually contains an appeal for a donation from users who find the software valuable. The success of this approach in funding development is not known. Some users of freeware are no doubt opposed to paying for any software, whether by donation or purchase, but presumably enough people donate to justify the wide range of beggarware available.
The beggarware approach of soliciting donations rather than charging upfront has spread to website templates, image galleries, desktop wallpaper and other areas beyond software.
