: Drop The External Service Charge

... Patreon announced that it would be adding a charge of 2.9% + $0.35 to all pledges, regardless of size. This fixed rate per contribution eats worst into the smallest donations, especially at the $1 level, which are vital to many creators' business models.


We ask that Patreon drop the idea of making service charges external to pledges, especially for small donations, in order to keep a vibrant creative community.

I don't actually mind if they drop it, but making it optional could be nice.
