Patreon per creation

Hello all, what does “patron-only” rewards mean to you?

I charge my patrons per creation and usually distribute my rewards on the 5th of the following month. I wrote on my bio and have always specifically written on my paid post asking patrons to please wait for the rewards because if they cancelled before receiving them, they would not be eligible for the rewards since they are “patron-only”.

However, sometimes I still have patrons who got charged but decided to cancel their pledge anyway before I managed to give the rewards to them. So I didn’t send the rewards.

To all the creators who do Patreon per creation, how do you do it? Do you still send “patron-only” rewards to people who got charged but no longer your patrons?
