Why not open source this project and accept donations? I personally think 20 bucks is a bit too much for a plugin, besides, open sourcing gives you lots of benefits, such as growing a community and being transparent about the information you collect.

From a reader: I did several medium-sized open-source projects, within 13 years I got about 200 USD in donations. And I am certain I reached more than a million users.
