We introduced Merch for Membership back in May with limited availability. This service allows creators to offer a merch item (like a sticker, mug, and poster) as a benefit on a tier for your patrons. We take care of everything for you, so the item gets shipped automatically after 3 months of patronage. All you have to do it pick the item, design what goes on it, and then assign it to a tier, Then we handle the address gathering, benefit tracking, item production, and fulfillment all on your behalf.
We started small — with limited availability, a small selection of items, and US shipping only. But now we’re thinking bigger with a vision to have a great selection of custom items and shipping everywhere for all creators on Patreon. And we’re working towards that for you!
In the recent weeks, we launched:
- lower item prices
- Stickers are now $3 cheaper per item
- Mug s are now $2 cheaper per item
- flat rate shipping, and
- international shipping to Canada and Australia, with more countries to come soon!
What’s to come, you ask? T-shirts and making this more widely available for creators to use.
To see if you’re eligible for Merch at this time, head on over to your Edit tiers page. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
