The Humble Bundle announced today that in May it began removing its own slide from the game package store page, effectively limiting the purchase price that customers can donate to charity. The news of this change upset some viewers, who described it as greedy.

Before purchasing the package, users can run three slides to work with charities and software publishers և Humble Bundle Inc. Can determine the amount of money you will receive from that purchase. If it is so dedicated, people can buy everything and donate to their favorite charity.
But after 10 years of using this system, Humble Bundle seems to have changed the situation. The slide is removed and replaced with a fixed preset version. All of these options bring significant revenue savings to Humble Bundle և publishers. In addition, the share of going to charity is now limited to only 15%.
