Any opinion on Patreon? Is the company doing good/bad/ugly? What about competition from Google "Join" buttons and Facebook fan subscriptions?

    I would avoid. I hear that they donโ€™t have good economics and growth is slowing sharply. I canโ€™t say more.

    As a user I think a lot of influencers/creators prefer Patreon, never heard of the others.

    Avoid. A friend used to work there and told me it's flailing.

      Thanks for the input. When did you friend work there? I saw they launched 3 separate pricing tiers earlier this year. Did your friend leave them this year or before?

    Patreon was pretty cool but they increased their fees by a lot, and now charge the creators something from minimum 7% of their monthly donations, up to 12-15% don't remember exactly. But it's worse than before.
    Still a nice service, but got greedy.
