Patreon: Drop The External Service Charge


As of Dec 7, 2017, Patreon announced that it would be adding a charge of 2.9% + $0.35 to all pledges, regardless of size. This a fixed rate per contribution eats worst into the smallest donations, especially at the one dollar level, which are vital to many creators' business models. It is further likely to put the smallest donors off becoming patreon patrons, making life difficult in turn for many of the low-paid creators who patreon works with.

We ask that Patreon should drop the idea of making service charges external to pledges, especially for small donations, in order to keep a vibrant creative community.
