Patreon is more than a payment platform as it gives us an alternative to post content, that only our paying patrons can see. The recurring payment model  allows a creator to build a base of patrons who will support the creator as long as the contents are update regularly.

Most importantly, Patreon will take care of chargebacks or declined payment to protect creator. So you don’t have worry about this and you can truly focus on creating awesome contents.
