November 31st and I have 54 patrons and $480ish expected.
December 1st and I have 46 patrons and $414 paid out.
I’m trying to be patient for this “Charge up front” feature but when you see that much money that you have earned disappear and you can’t do anything about it it’s frustrating.
There are few things as discouraging than watching the numbers rise and then crash and knowing so many people are viewing the content for free. I can’t even call them out on it for fear of others noticing and following suit.
Hasn’t this “Pay up front” feature been in beta for about a year now? It feels like it and although I’ve only been around a four or five months I was really hoping I’d be invited into it by now.
I love Patreon and the opportunities it gives me but “pay day” instead of being something I look forward to is something I dread as I wonder how many people will go away with out paying.
