Description

Hi, we’re Patreon. We believe people who make things should get paid for the value they give to the world.

Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid. Fans pay creators of all kinds a subscription amount of their choice in exchange for exclusive experiences and behind-the-scenes content. Creators get a meaningful revenue stream and fans get closer to the creators they love most. We think that’s the definition of a win-win.

Patreon’s iPhone app brings creators and fans together like never before.

FANS & PATRONS
* Stay up to date on the latest from the creators you support
* Discover and follow new creators
* Interact with your favorite creators in real-time when they host live chats

CREATORS
* Create and share new content with your patrons
* Leave comments and replies on your posts, including photo comments
* Build a long-term relationship with your fans with actionable insights.

Ready to get started? Visit https://www.patreon.com/creators to make it happen.
