I HAVE CHANGED MY PATREON TO CHARGE PATRONS UP-FRONT.
This means that when you pledge on january 5th, for example, you pay for the whole month of january right away, and then on february first you get billed for all of february and so on.
For pledgers who are already pledging, nothing will change. You will be charged your pledge on september first as usual, you will NOT be charged twice on september!
If you need to edit your pledge, make sure you do it before the end of the month, because there are no refunds.
