Following the thousands of protests and complaints from both Creators and Patron, Patreon has announced they will NOT change their billing system as previously planned.
This is good news especially for all those patrons that are showing their support with 1$ or 2$ pledges – that may seem nothing to outside observers, but are actually significant and important for the creators, and that were on the receiving end of the harshest increase in fees. It was just unfair to have these patrons pay an extra to make a donation.
Jack Comte’s announcement is an excellent show of how damage control should be handled, and is a first step in restoring the public’s faith in Patreon.
This is certainly good news as far as I am concerned – and now back to work on this month’s Patreon contents.
