Please note that while these examples are in US Dollar ($), it is possible that you could be billed in any of our supported currencies, depending on the currency that the creator chooses to bill in. To find a list of supported currencies, please visit this guide here.
Payments are processed by currency. If you have memberships in different currencies, they will be run separately and there will be a line item for each transaction.
Here we go!
Become a patron– join a creator's page
Step 1: Visit your creator's patreon page and select one of their tiers. The tier you choose will unlock the benefits offered in that tier. The tier price is the minimum amount you can pay to unlock access.
Step 2: Add your payment method and confirm your membership details
After choosing your tier, or clicking Become a patron, you’ll be taken to a checkout page where you can do the following:
- Add your payment details, so we can complete your membership
- Set a monthly limit if your creator charges per paid post
- Select monthly or annual billing (if the creator offers annual membership plans)
If your creator does not have tiers, the payment amount will default to $5 USD / €5 Euro / £5 British Pounds. You can adjust the payment amount to a higher value, or any amount greater than $1 USD / €1 Euro / £1 British Pound, which is the minimum amount we process.
Step 3: Review the details of your monthly membership
We want to be transparent about your billing schedule. Review the billing details outlined in the "Summary" portion of the page on the right-hand side before confirming your membership. Reviewing what you’re agreeing to will avoid any surprises when your payment method is charged! (Below image is an example of a regular monthly "back billing" checkout)
Step 4: Click the Confirm button to finalize your payment.
You can update your memberships or payment methods from your Manage memberships page. To get there, hover over the “pencil” icon on the left navigation menu and click to Manage.
Click into your
and add new methods.
