Managing your messages

All of your messages with patrons live in your creator inbox. Your creator inbox is where you’ll find responses from patrons and any new messages from patrons who have reached out directly to you.

Creators have 2 inboxes:

  • Your creator inbox: where you communicate with your patrons
  • Your patron inbox: where you can communicate with creators you support


Can I send pictures via messaging?

Not at the moment. You can share links with users, which is an option for sharing image sets with patrons.

Can I send bulk messages?

Absolutely! Read the above section about bulk messaging to learn how.

Can I delete a message?

It isn’t currently possible to delete private messages.

Can I message followers?

You can only message patrons you have or have had a financial relationship with (former patron). So you can’t send messages to followers. If you want to send a message to your followers, we recommend making a public post, which followers can access.

Can I pick specific patrons from my list to bulk message?

You can manually select patrons from your Relationship manager to message. Once you’ve selected the patrons, click the Message button.
