What is Patreon?

  • Updated

For creators

Patreon gives you the tools to confidently reach, engage, and get paid by your most valuable fans — with and beyond membership — no matter where you are on your journey. You fully own your direct relationship with your fans, and we build the tools to help you grow over time. It's free to start on Patreon, and you can add paid membership and commerce tools whenever expanding your business feels right for you.

You can learn more about becoming a creator on Patreon by visiting patreon.com

For members

Patreon is a way to join and engage with your favorite creator's community. No algorithms or doom scrolling here — you'll have a dedicated place to get content from the creators you know and love. If creators offer paid membership or sell digital products, you can pay them directly for exclusive content, knowing you're supporting them to create more of the work you love. 

For customers

Patreon lets creators sell digital products directly to you, their most valuable fans. You can shop, buy, and consume digital products in one space.
