Team accounts is a new feature available to creators in the Premium Plan, to help them run their business with the support of their team.
Each teammate will have their own account login, while the team lead, will have sole access to financial data and permission settings for teammates.
In this article, we’ll review the permissions and account control of the team lead.
Who is the team lead?
The team lead is the main owner of the account. They’re in charge of creating and launching the creator campaign, so the account information used when signing up belongs to the team lead. There can only be one team lead per account.
Note: The role of team lead cannot be transferred from one account to another. While the login credentials tied to the team lead account can be changed, the team lead will always be associated with the account that signed up to Patreon.
Viewing and Managing Financial Information
The Income section of an account will only be accessible to the team lead. This includes your Payout and Taxes link and your Earnings button.
This means only team leads will be able to payout the creator balance and add or change payout information. Team leads are also the only members who can grant refunds to patrons.
Settings & Account Access
Team leads have sole access to the account link on creator settings. This means team leads are the only teammates capable of changing the creator plan or un-launching the creator page.
Here is a complete list of all team lead access on Patreon:
