Patreon to charge fans more to fund their favorite creators
Patreon is gonna charge patrons 2.9% + 35 cents for every individual pledge
SAN FRANCISCO — Patreon has made some changes recently to how it lets fans funds their favorite creators.
The long and short of it is, creators will earn more money but their patrons - those who fund them through the site - will be charged 2.9% more, plus 35 cents.
So say you're backing someone with a pledge of $1. From December 18, that's next Monday by the way, you'll be charged around a buck 38. More than a third of what you pledged. And that's all before VAT is added on.
