Previously if you pledged small amounts to different people, they took a payment processing fee, and a 5% charge for themselves.
Now they have said that they're passing these payment processing fees onto Patrons. The fee is $0.35 + 2.9% PER PLEDGE.
So if you pledge $1 to 10 creators, the charge is 2.9% + $0.35 * 10.
This is such bullshit.
So, looks like I'm looking for an alternative. I'm going to stop using Patreon for the small pledges I was doing (no word from them, but I'm pretty sure they'll take the "payment processing fees" from money that's been paid to me by you guys).
Fuckin hell. What a PITA.
