Patreon has become, together with OnlyFans, the most famous paid social network of 2020. While OnlyFans is aimed at a more specific audience, Patreon collects all kinds of content creators, from musicians, poets and painters to youtubers , gamers and content creators in general. The problem with the platform is that it does not have support in Spanish, so the doubts about Patreon are as diverse as they are numerous. For this reason we have compiled some of the most frequently asked questions around the web to answer them .

Is Patreon safe and reliable?
Right. The crowdfunding platform was founded in 2013 and has been online for more than five years. In addition to incorporating secure payment methods, it uses encryption systems and SSL certificates to secure all information on the platform.
It also offers two-step verification systems and captcha access to prevent brute force logins.
I am a minor, can I use Patreon?
Affirmative. The minimum age to use Patreon as a patron is 13 years old . If we are going to use the platform as content creators, the minimum age to register on Patreon as patrons is 18 years old . Otherwise, the company refers to the fact that parental permission is required to create an account and offer content within the web.
Is Patreon anonymous?
To be a patron of an employer, we will have to create an account within the platform. In other words, Patreon is not anonymous . To maintain a certain anonymity on the web, we can use a different email and username than the ones we usually use to register on social networks and websites.
Can I use PayPal to pay on Patreon?
The truth is that yes. PayPal fully supports payment through Patreon. In the United States, payment through this method is commission-free . For the rest of the countries, Patreon applies an additional commission of 1% that falls directly on the creator himself . This commission responds to the commission that PayPal usually applies in foreign countries and is added to the commissions imposed by the platform itself to obtain benefit from subscriptions.
I don't have PayPal, can I use credit or debit cards on Patreon?
Right. Patreon supports a multitude of payment methods, although most are country dependent. Specifically, Patreon is compatible with debit and credit cards from Visa, American Express and MasterCard. It is also compatible with Payoneer and Discover, two methods especially used in the United States.
Is there a method, hack, trick or app to use Patreon for free?
Tens and hundreds of websites and videos promise to give a 'hack' to use Patreon for free without registration. Needless to say, all of these methods are bogus.
Most of these methods are used to obtain data. Others are used to subscribe to Premium SMS services or to introduce malware to our computer. From tuexperto.com we completely discourage resorting to these methods.
I have paid a creator and I am not satisfied with the content, can I request a refund?
Currently Patreon does not offer the ability to claim payments to the platform. If we have purchased a subscription pack or we are simply not satisfied with the content of the creator, the website invites you to contact directly the person responsible for the content to request a return by an alternative means (PayPal, bank deposit, transfer to account ...). In other words, the platform will not be responsible for returning the money to the bosses.
Can only dollars be used on Patreon?
Absolutely. Patreon supports, at least at the time of this writing, three different currencies: Euro, Dollar, and British Pound . The type of currency generally depends on the creator's country of origin. So you can set a currency based on your target audience.
I want to be a creator on Patreon, what percentage of the profits do I get?
The issue of percentages within Patreon is somewhat complex. First, because of the different types of currency used on the platform. Second, for the amount of money set in the price of each subscription. Third, by the country of origin. And fourth, by the type of service that we have chosen when registering within the platform (Lite, Pro or Premium).
Based on the type of currency and the subscription price set, Patreon applies the following fees:
- $ 3 or less : 5% of subscription plus 10 cents.
- More than $ 3 : 2.9% of subscription plus 30 cents.
- 3 euros or less : 5% of the subscription plus approximately 15 cents.
- More than 3 euros : 3.4% of the subscription plus approximately 35 cents.
- £ 3 or less : 5% of subscription plus approximately 15p.
- Over £ 3 - 3.4% of subscription plus roughly 35p.
If our employers use PayPal as a payment method to subscribe to our wall and we reside outside the United States , the company applies a series of commissions based on the country of origin and currency. For payments in dollars, Patreon applies the following fees:
- $ 3 or more : 6% plus about 10 cents.
- More than $ 3 : 3.9% plus about 30 cents.
In case we configure the payments in euros or pounds, the commissions will be applied directly when the payment of the total amount accumulated throughout the month is made. Of this total amount, that is, the amount we receive at the end of the month , Patreon applies the following commissions depending on the type of service contracted:
- Lite subscription : 5% of the total received monthly.
- Pro subscription : 8% of the total received monthly.
- Premium subscription : 12% of the total received monthly.
