Upgrade my plan from Patreon Lite to Pro

  • Updated

We’ve decided to discontinue the Lite plan due to low creator adoption. This only applies to creators who join Patreon or are looking to downgrade to Lite after June 21, 2023. Creators who were already on the Lite plan before June 21, 2023, can continue to use Lite plan features. Visit our Lite deprecation FAQ for more information.

What should I think about before I upgrade?
