No I’m obviously not explaining myself right. I’ve been on patreon for 4 and a half years now, I know it fluctuates. However, since changing my settings to let people use their own currency here this month my income has dropped by $208 dollars. This is my ONLY income right now and this is very worrying and has made me pretty angry. I have had about three people who have changed their currency, so this does NOT account for losing this kind of amount.
Start of the month I had $879 go through as income from patreon and before changing currency it said that same number under my avatar, and since changing this currency setting it states that I will get $671 (lost another patron overnight) - what is happening here? I have only lost $32 worth of pledges this month NOT $208!!! I have already been losing patrons last month and the month before because of Covid, the last thing I needed is a totally random drop in patronage. Please tell me why this is happening because it is not due to patrons leaving.
I know that Patreon stated that this would change how each patron was charged, but most of my patrons are still using dollars which is what my patreon is set to. You should have made it MUCH m ore clear, with real examples of what would happen when you changed the currency that it was possible I would lose such a huge chunk of income.
Please can you explain what is happening.
