When describing businesses, it is important for customers to know in advance who pays for the service, to avoid fraud and spam. VictorPorton (talk) 05:29, 26 February 2021 (UTC)


  • @VictorPorton: I don't understand this proposal, but perhaps if you fixed the examples it would make more sense. Examples should look like "subject item" (new property) "target item or value", but currently your examples are just a list of items. Please look at other active proposals for how to do this. See also the existing property sponsor (P859) which may cover what you are proposing? ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:34, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
  • @ArthurPSmith: BTW, sponsor (P859) is a special case (subclass) of the proposed property. VictorPorton (talk) 19:33, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
  • @ArthurPSmith: I don't understand what exactly you want instead of a list of items. They are value, not properties. I am new to WikiData, please explain. No sponsor (P859) is quite different: sponsor (P859) cannot be a customer and the proposed property can. VictorPorton (talk) 19:16, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
  • I don't think this makes sense. BrokenSegue (talk) 23:19, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
    • @ArthurPSmith: Surely, knowing who pays for some service (whether it is the customer himself or somebody other) does not make sense for a customer :-) VictorPorton (talk) 23:29, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
