The headquarters are located in San Francisco, CA. The website is available in English. Currently, Patreon has over 3 million monthly active patrons. There are over 100,000 creators that are currently using Patreon.
If you are a creator, Patreon is a good membership to promote and post your content on. The website is ideal for podcasters, video creators, musicians, visual artists, communities, writers, journalists, gaming creators, nonprofits, tutorials, education, and creators of all kinds. Signing up as a creator is simple. You need to create an account. You first need to tell your fans that you are on Patreon. This can be done on any social channel that you please. You will then need to set up your page and membership tiers, then launch your Patreon. With Patreon, you are able to take your patrons along the journey with you. You can share videos, podcasts, behind-the-scene footage, bonus content, and patron-only material. Patreon offers three plans; Lite, Pro, and Premium. Under the Lite plan, Patreon will charge you 5% of your revenue. The Pro plan will charge you 8% of your revenue. As a Premium member, you will be charged 12% of your revenue.
If you are looking to be a patron or a customer of a creator, you will need to go to their page to see pricing. Each creator creates membership tiers and charges based on the tier. If you would like to cancel your Patreon account, you can easily do so. Simply follow the instructions that are included on this page.
