Patreon is an American crowdfunding platform based in San Francisco which can be used by content creators as a business tool for creating subscription based services. Subscribers who support content creators using Patreon are referred to as "patrons".


Patreon charges creators between 5 and 12% of the monthly revenue generated by Patrons in addition to payment processing fees.
