I am a creator based in Russia, what do international sanctions mean for me?
As a result of sanctions against Russia for the invasion of Ukraine, many financial institutions in Russia have been excluded from the international banking system and we may be unable to pay out to some creators. This ban is not comprehensive and we are not certain which creators are affected by this. If you are a creator based in Russia, please contact your payout provider to get information.
I am a patron, what is the impact of these sanctions on my membership?
We are still charging patrons of affected creators and the funds will remain secure and pending until they can be withdrawn. Because these sanctions also affect credit card payments, patrons in Russia may not be able to be charged, so creators may see a drop in payments processed as a result of failed payments.
This situation could change quickly.
This is a rapidly moving situation and we are in constant communication with our payment partners to better understand how we can support creators and their patrons. If anything changes, we will implement those changes on our end as quickly as possible. We are committed to making creator accounts fully functional as soon as possible and working with creators to get through this time.
