Frequently asked questions
When do changes to currencies take effect?
Changes to currencies will be updated upon your next billing and reflected in your following billing statement. Any price differences are calculated and displayed during checkout if you upgrade or downgrade.
How does my currency affect the price displayed on Patreon?
When pledging to a creator who operates and sets prices in a currency other than your preferred currency, Patreon converts the tier price for you using a conversion based on historical exchange rate data. You can learn more about how we calculate the exchange rate here: How tiers are converted into other currencies.
How currency works if you’re paying by credit or debit card
Credit and debit card transactions on Patreon are currently accepted in our supported currencies. If you’re viewing the site in one of these supported checkout currencies, the entire checkout process will be in that currency. Otherwise the currency displayed will be the creator’s currency.
How currency works if you’re paying with PayPal
Similarly, if you pay through PayPal and you’re viewing the site in one of these supported checkout currencies, the entire checkout process will be in that currency. Otherwise the currency displayed will be the creator’s currency.
