What is Patreon?

  • Updated

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, podcasts.) Fans can pay you monthly or per post you release, depending on the payment schedule you choose. Learn more in our deep dive into what membership is, and how it works.

For patrons

Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator's community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn't work), you can now pay creators once a month or per thing the creator makes. This means the creator gets paid regularly, 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 favorite creators making a living doing what they do best because of you.
