There is no one right way to Patreon for all creators! We are happy to advise, but every creator has to come up with a way to reward and charge patrons; everyone must come up with a way to share their work. For example, different billing options function very differently. Making that choice decides how rewards will work and how your patrons will experience your services.
- Should my creator page be marked as adult content?
- Can I offer a raffle as a reward?
- My page has been taken down, what can I do?
You will need a bank account to get paid. We use three very popular payment services to get the money to you, but you must have a bank account to receive the money. The different services may not work in your country. You can read more on how to set up your Payout information here.
Refunds come from your creator balance, so you must have available funds to issue a refund. Be mindful of the 5th of the month(when we auto-payout), and if you don't have an available balance, make patrons to whom you've promised refunds know that they may have to wait until you have available funds on your balance again.
