I've been mulling over Patreon's most recent change. I truly don't believe it's fair to you guys, my Patrons, to have to shoulder the fee I had been shouldering this whole time. You guys have been my lifeline in times of my life where everything was going wrong and my whole life was crumbling around me. There have been times where I have solely fell upon my Patreon's income to carry me through rough times, and I can never truly express my gratitude to you, my friends.
So I've decided to create "No Fee" Patron Tiers. Essentially you will be paying the same amount (or lower by a few cents) as you have been before! So if that is something that interests you, please feel free to change your pledge to the "No Fee" version of your current pledge!
If you choose to stay at the pledge you currently are, starting December 18th, Patreon will be taking fees directly from Patrons, rather than Creators. That means that I will be receiving more money, but at the expense of your wallets. I calculated the amount per patronage, and aside my $100 tier, all fees are $1 or lower. So instead of paying $10, you will be paying $11 (or less). (As opposed to the $9 No Fee tier where you will be paying about $10 as you originally have been).
So the choice is your's!
If you would like to avoid the fees, PLEASE CHANGE YOUR PATRONAGE TO THE "NO FEE" VERSION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!
IF it turns out a miscalculated and you are charged more than you are comfortable with the next payment cycle PLEASE contact me and I will reimburse you!
Thank you guys SO much and I do hope that you will continue to be a part of my Patreon family! I promise I have so many cool things planned for 2018 that I do hope you will be a part of!
