Why creators are making the switch from Patreon to Podia.

No transaction fees, no matter how much you sell 💰

Whether your members pay you $5, $50 or $500, you pay the same low monthly fee. Because you earned it, and you deserve to keep it.

A support team there's here for you ❤️

Being a creator is hard, and it's even harder when you have to wait days or weeks for a reply from the platform that powers your business. Our customer service. We’re responsive, receptive to feedback, and always here to help with real people offering live chat support, 7 days a week.

Own your platform 🏠

You worked hard to build your audience, don't let some massive platform own your relationship with them. With Podia, you own your customer data, your sales, your content, and your platform.

Run a business, not a tip jar

Podia is a Patreon alternative that believes that creators deserve to earn what they're worth. Start earning a living from your passion, without the sneaky fees.

"What attracted me to Podia as a content creator was the ability to build and foster a community while developing all my content in one place. I don't know any other platform that does these two things so well."

Podia allowed me to launch a custom storefront for my fantasy console, Pixel Vision 8, in no time at all! What I loved most about Podia was how it enabled a unique monetization model around one-off purchases, monthly membership subscriptions, and handcrafted courses.
