So today I received an email from Patreon (an automated one) about an update announcing that creators will now be “taking home” 95% of patron cash. Now, that sounds good on the surface, but what they’re doing in order to make this possible is kind of not great. Instead of cutting their own percentage of what they take from you, they’re making your patrons pay a fraction more.
If you’re like me, and you’re making music and wondering how you do these things that you probably assumed weren’t as difficult to do before you jumped into the scene, I have the answer for you! Now, firstly, there are a few different services out there, and some of them will take more money from you than you’ll probably ever make at least in your first couple years.
