Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators to get paid.
For creators, Patreon is a way to get paid for creating the things you’re already creating (webcomics, videos, songs, whatever). Fans pay a few quid per month OR per post you release, and then you get paid every month or every time you release something new. Learn more about becoming a creator on Patreon HERE.
For patrons, Patreon is a way to join your favourite creator’s community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few quid per month or per post that a creator makes. For example, if you pay £2 per video, and the creator releases 3 videos in February, then your card gets charged a total of £6 that month. This means the creator gets paid regularly (every time she releases something new), and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. That’s right – Imagine you, in a long frilly white wig, painted on a 10-foot canvas on the wall of a Victorian mansion. And imagine your favourite creators making a living doing what they do best… because of you.
And for all you artsy people who'd rather just watch a video...
