I’m not getting the pop-up window to log in to Discord

This typically happens if you have an ad blocker or browser extension that is blocking pop-up windows. Please disable these extensions while connecting Discord to Patreon.

Joining and Leaving a creator's Discord server

Once you've connected your Discord and Patreon accounts, any servers you're eligible to join will appear on the Discord Apps settings page. Click the Join server button to get your role.


If at any point you'd like to leave the creator's server, you can click the Leave server button to be removed. You can always re-join the server from your Discord app settings latter on. 


  • If you’ve connected Patreon and Discord, we recommend disconnecting and reconnecting Discord to Patreon. Before doing so, log out of Discord and clear your cache and cookies to start fresh. Reconnecting will reestablish communication between the two apps. Here's an article to guide you through this: Discord isn’t working for me

    If you’re still not finding your creator's server, check that you’re in the correct tier to unlock Discord access. This section of our help center guide will help you confirm your tier: How to check your tier level

  • Check the creator's Patreon for the Discord logo on your tier description.

  • If you think you were assigned the wrong role, there are a couple of things you can do to double-check:

    • Click the active membership associated with this benefit located on the left side menu on your Recent feed. On the Creator’s Patreon, click the Membership tab to check if your creator added the Discord role name to the tier description
    • Message your creator directly on Patreon — they’ll know which roles they've assigned to which tiers. Learn how to message your creator with this guide: How do I message a creator?
