#Patreon fee structure comparison. https://status.pointless.one/media/wMdciL1lY7E79K6SmL8
@Jelv True. BTW, do you know why did they switch?
@pointlessone this is there official response: https://blog.patreon.com/updating-patreons-fee-structure/ They think is more fair that the money you give is excluding fees and nog including fees.
@Jelv Yeah. I saw the post. That's where the numbers come for the graphics.
I didn't read it closely though.
@Jelv How did they increase their take? Isn't it the same 5%?
@pointlessone it was:
Once a month:
5% Patreon fee [for creator]
Stripe charges 1.9% + $0.30 per transaction [for creator]
PayPal charges 5% + $0.05 per transaction [for creator]
And now is:
(Donation - 5% Patreon fee [for creator])
Patreon charges 2,9% + $0.35 per transaction [for donator]
Conclusion is that small donations are a lot expensive. That is paid for by the donators. From 10 dollar the donations get cheaper.
