I can set up Patreon to charge per month or per creation. I chose per creation because I will go several months without making anything and I didn't think it was fair for me to be charging people each month if I don't create something. I could pause the charging for the months where I don't create anything but it defaults back to charging for the next month and I'd have to pause it again. I may accidentally forget to pause it and then you all get charged.
With per creation I don't have to think about it. If I go 4 months without a new video nobody get charged.
But the down side is that if I make 4 videos in a month (like I'm doing now) then you charged a bunch ... unless you set your monthly maximum. I just checked and a bunch of people don't have a monthly maximum set. If you did that on purpose then thank you very much! But I'm betting a lot of you didn't know about it or forgot.
If you support me with $1 and then set your monthly maximum to $1 then it won't matter how many videos I create in a month you'll only pay the $1.
Please take some time and make sure your contributions are set up the way you intend. I don't want you to get a statement at the end of the month and find out you gave me more than you wanted. Thanks!
