Patreon used to do a The total monthly fees paid by TuxDigital on Patreon are not per transaction. The collective fee approach means the more patrons there are the lower the fee per patron. This transaction pooling method is why Patreon is the preferred platform. If you have any other platform suggestions please let me know.

Payment Fee Structures

Processing Fee: 2.9% + $0.30
Platform Fee: 4.1%
Total Fee: 7% + $0.30

The total monthly fees paid by TuxDigital on Patreon are not per transaction. The collective fee approach means the more patrons there are the lower the fee per patron.

PayPal

PayPal is the largest payment platform and is the most convenient option for giving one-time contributions. Note*: Starting in 2020 PayPal contributions don't receive Patron Rewards.

Processing Fee: 2.9% + $0.30

PayPal does not act as a patron platform so it doesn’t offer an sort of system for Patron Rewards. This is why contributing through PayPal doesn’t receive these benefits.

The fee for $1 contributions is $0.33 (33%) so the recommended amount is $3 or more. Due to the per transaction processing fees, $12 is the minimum one-time amount for PayPal patrons to receive Patronage Rewards.

Note*: PayPal doesn’t offer a way to provide rewards so it is just a very difficult thing to logistically. Everyone who has contributed via PayPal in 2019 will have my best effort to provide rewards but in 2020 I will need to discontinue this.
