Hello Patreon Creators!
Today we’re announcing new creator plans and letting you know about some changes coming in a May.
First things first! Nothing changes for you with this update. At all. We just wanted to tell you about this before we make changes for creators who sign up for Patreon in the future.
Going forward, we’re creating different plans with different sets of features for creators who join Patreon. This comes with new pricing and payment processing rates for future creators, including a new low rate for payments of $3 or less.
This change allows us to invest heavily in the features and services you want and need to run your business so we can make them world-class. Also, we can add advanced features like Team Accounts and our new Merch product for creators who really want them. And if you don’t want any new features, you don’t have to choose them!
To repeat, current creators on Patreon will see no change to the fees they pay or the features they have. You can read the full announcement and details here, and you should have gotten an email with this info too.
If, after reading the announcement and FAQs you still have questions, we are here to answer them. We’re hosting a series of special Hang Times just to talk about this announcement live (take a look and see if you can join any of the sessions), as well as answering any questions posted in this thread.
I want to give a huge THANK YOU to all those who have helped us get here with surveys, round tables, group calls, and much more! All your feedback and thoughts were invaluable to get us to where we are today. Thank you.
