Build your page

You can choose to either bill your patrons for their support monthly or per creation. If you bill your patrons per creation, they’ll be charged on the first of the following month if you publish a Paid post. Learn about the different ways that you can bill your patrons here: Billing my patrons
Once you launch your page, you'll be able to access your Payout settings.
You’ll enter your creator account details, which include your legal first and last name as well as your country of residence. If you are a team or brand, you’ll need to choose one individual who will own the account and enter their details in this section. Not to worry – your legal name will not be visible in any part of the site and is only collected for Sales tax purposes.
If you’d prefer to have the amount you receive each month remain private, you can select this option next to Earnings Visibility.
Connect your social accounts to your Patreon page so that patrons can quickly go to your social media profiles.
You can also use this page to create an RSS Audio Feed for your audio posts. This gives each patron their own individual feed for audio posts you publish on Patreon.
There is also an option to create a private Audio RSS feed for patrons with our Acast integration.
In the Advanced menu of your page editor, you can access your Welcome Notes page. You can use this section to set up a custom welcome note that appears after patrons pledge to your page and even add a thank you video to this section. This isn’t required to launch your page so you can come back to this again at any time.
The Goals you set get patrons excited about the next big step of your creative journey. You can use goals to help paint a picture of what you'll work toward together.
There are two different types of goals you can set: Earnings-based goals and Community-based goals. Earnings-based goals are related to the amount of money you’ll earn, while Community-based goals are related to the number of patrons you’ll have.
