Only patrons of creators charging their patrons up front, will see immediate charges.
Outside of that, Patrons can expect to be charged on the 1st of each month (after 12AM PST/PDT) for their pledges from the previous month. It usually takes a full 24-48 hours for all payments to process, so you may not see a charge go through for a few days from the start of the month. You’ll receive an email that will indicate whether your payment was successfully processed or declined, alternatively, you can check your Billing History page for your payment status.
We have 3 different billing options for creators to choose from. Learn more about the differences between the 3, here: When will I be charged?
