REVISED! Patreon News: December 2017

By now, you may have heard that Patreon will change how they process payments. Starting December 18th, all pledges will be increased by 2.9%, plus $0.35. You should have received an email from Patreon explaining the change and their reasoning.

We understand that Patreon is making this change in an attempt to fix a problem, but we’re afraid they’ve replaced one problem with another.

There’s enough push-back from creators and patrons that we aren’t certain Patreon will carry out the planned changes. However, we are prepared to lower reward levels to keep your pledge amount consistent. This will result in our losing some income, but we think it’s worth it to keep your costs as predictable as possible.

So, we’ll wait and hope for Patreon to change their minds, but if they haven’t by December 15, we will adjust our pledge levels.

More to come on this as things develop.

EDIT: Because of the outcry, Patreon changed their mind and did not roll out the new fee structure.

Onward! And, of course, thank you for your patronage and for listening.
