How do I access my Discord role?
So, you’ve found a creator that offers Discord role and you want to access them. You can gain access to a creator’s Discord server by following these steps:
Step 1 - While on the creator’s page, select and pledge to the tier that includes Discord as a benefit.
Note: If you become a patron to a creator but place yourself in a tier that doesn’t offer Discord roles, you will not receive access to that creator’s Discord server.
Step 2 - After pledging into the proper tier, you’ll need to connect your Discord and Patreon accounts. There are a few ways to go about this:
- 2a. Directly after becoming a patron, on the Thank You page, there’ll be an option to Connect on Discord. Click this to link your Patreon and Discord account.
- 2b. If you’ve missed this page, you also should’ve received an email titled,“Here are some benefits to go along with your pledge to…” with the same Connect to Discord button.
- 2c. You can also head over to your Profile settings and click on the Connect to Discord button to connect your Discord and Patreon accounts.
Step 3 - Once you click the box to Connect to Discord, a separate window will appear requesting you to log into your Discord account. If you already have a Discord account, you’ll just need to sign into your Discord account here.

If you have followed these steps and still don't have access, it's likely that the creator has set up their Discord BOT incorrectly. In order for our Discord BOT to work, the creator must not assign benefits to the BOT and they can also not set the BOT below tiers.
We recommend to the creator and letting them know that they need to make sure their BOT is above their roles in their Discord server. They also need to make sure that their roles are named anything other than "Patreon". is an article that may help them out.
