What is Patreon?

If you’re a content creator, you’ve probably heard of Patreon. But do you know what it is or what it consists of? We tell you

Patreon is a platform  that provides content creators the possibility of getting monthly or punctual payments, depending on what is requested by their clients or patrons.

Because it allows them to finance their work, this service is especially popular among musicians, artists, videogame developers, and even YouTubers.

In this way, there are two types of profiles in Patreon: the creators and the patrons, although the same person can be both at the same time.

But what are the advantages of being one of these “patrons” or patrons? For example, you can access exclusive content, prior to being published on other platforms, and even, all kinds of privileged or personalized information. And is that these types of benefits depend on the creator.

If you have found a user whose content you would like to support, it is easy to help, since each account has several levels of support, which can range from one dollar to 15, or even larger amounts.

On the other hand, it is also important to know what are the ways in which Patreon users work: per month or per product . The first case is the simplest: in exchange for a monthly payment of money we can access a series of exclusive content. In the second case, users pay per piece of published content.

Lately the platform has been surrounded by controversy because it intends to apply a new tax system to patrons, since it intends to charge an additional 2.9% per request. The creators of content have expressed against this measure, because they fear losing followers.
