Well it's time to leave #OneDollarPatreon behind.
KoFi, LiberaPay and others have surfaced as proper alternatives.
#TipYourFriends will be the new drum I bang.
Please spread the word. I need friends to tip 😉
@kemonine does this mean i support someone for a dollar, even if they have other supporters, it's useless?
@confusedcharlot The opposite
Even if it's only a dollar, you should
@kemonine Can i ask why?
@kemonine I’m thinking of using Paypal’s subscription option.
@aldersprig Wouldn't PayPal be worse in a way?
@kemonine The thing is, I’m already getting my Patreon in through Paypal. So it’s just cutting out a middleman. And adding a little work.
@aldersprig Fair enough; Plus you could always manage the subscription stuff via a blog/similar with access tokens
@kemonine that’s what I was contemplating
@aldersprig Could you do sometrhing around a wordpress site?
I'm not familiar with it but it seems like that would be a natural go-to for creators self-hosting an access system for paypal subscriptions...
@aldersprig The achilles heel would be exposure though
Patreon is a *huge* platform and one stop shop for rewards.
I wonder if having your own wordpress endpoint would curtail your ability to sell access in a big way 🤔
@kemonine The thing is, I haven’t gotten ANYONE that I know of just off of PAtreon. My Patrons either came from my existing fanbase or from here.
@aldersprig That's good to know actually.
If you're mainly picking up users from your existing publishing channels... seems like a better call to self-host the teirs/endpoints if you can.
Has it's own risks but i can see the merit
@kemonine Tipeee seems like a good alternative as well
