3. Create a FUNDING.yml file in the .github directory (.github/FUNDING.yml) of the master branch of your project. 

4. Copy/paste tidelift: <platform/package-name> into your FUNDING.yml file.

5. Replace <platform/package-name> with the lowercased package manager of your lifted package (e.g. pypi, npm, maven), and the name of that package.

6. Commit the changes! This will now direct visitors to Tidelift as your solution for income for open source.

7. Repeat this process for any other repos you'd like to update with GitHub Sponsors.
