Patreon Backpeddles From Changes to Payment Structures


Content creation platform Patreon is taking a step back from recently announced changes regarding the manner in which creators, including music artists, are paid for their work. The changes were first announced in an e-mail sent to content creators on December 6th but a follow-up e-mail sent out on December 13th said the platform was holding off.

In a blog post that can be read HERE, Patreon founder Jack Conte went on to say that implementing the changes resulted in a disproportionate impact on Patrons donating money in $1 and $2 increments.

The decision to step back from the proposed changes resulted in mostly positive feedback on Patreon's official Twitter page.
