I did hope that others would add issues … but well, here’s another pain I am just going through:
For several minutes (according to the clock on the wall about 14 minutes by now) I am trying to find an IN DEPTH list of income versus expenses in my account. Details seem to be sprayed all over the place, from account settings to dashboard and back.
Now - I found a list that claims “amount pledged at end of month” - in my examples this shows these numbers:
11 + 36 + 23 + 24 + 30 + 26
… which sums up to 150.
I found another page that lists some payouts for pledges I sent to other creators. For the same time span this was:
4,76 + 4,76 + 2,38 + 0,00
… which sums up to 11,90.
I found yet ANOTHER page that lists “pledges processed”, this shows:
23 + 24 + 30
… which sums up to 77.
Note the “slight” difference to 150 from above.
I found YET ANOTHER page that lists “patreon fees and processing fees”. That lists, as the (seemingly) FINAL output to my account:
20,11 + 20,96 + 26,30
… which sums up to 67,37
Now I can substract 11,90 from 67,37, which gives me a final OUTPUT of 55,47. From 150 I am down to 55,47. And it took me 22 minutes to get to this number, including putting together this comment.
Patreon, your UXP is horrible. You cannot seriously expect someone who is trying to get some money through Patreon (which she/he will obviously have to declare as an income, giving CLEAR and PRECISE lists of billed/payed components to THE STATE) to waste that much clicks and time on getting basic account information collected! This has to be in ONE PAGE with EXACT declarations of income/expenses.
PLEASE have ONE professional account page that lists all fiscal transfers.
Please have that NOW. I am doing weekly accounting.
Don’t worry, I am not going to moan about the bug/glitch that has cost me a whole month’s Patreon income again.
Sorry, the “community guideline” about “not signing your post” is a bad idea. My username is “malbrecht”, but my NAME is not. It is a question of politeness and respect to use your NAME when communicating with human beings.
