Ko-fi is the friendly way to receive one-off or monthly income from fans with 0% platform fees. Use Ko-fi as an alternative to Patreon or use both!
Not everyone wants to subscribe monthly. Give fans the choice to support you with one-off donations or monthly subscriptions.
Join a supportive, positive community of 500k creators. Set up your page in just 60 seconds and start receiving support. It’s quick, easy and low-pressure.
We don't charge a fee on the donations you receive. We want you to keep all of the money your supporters send to you.
Note - PayPal and Stripe charge some cents per transaction.
Payments are made directly and instantly from supporters to your PayPal or Stripe account. No minimum balances, no payout issues, just instant, transparent payments directly to you.
Let fans request unique content. Manage commission types, available slots, set your terms and get paid in advance. We don't take a cut of your commission sales either!
Creating monthly content for different tiers can be overwhelming. You can offer monthly subscriptions and rewards on Ko-fi, but it’s totally optional!
Coffee is just a friendly metaphor to represent the gesture of support, you don’t have to buy Coffee.
Ko-fi charges 0% platform fees! At the point of the transaction the supporter is directed to PayPal or Stripe to make payment and you get 100% of the donation (minus payment provider fees).
Thousands of creators choose to subscribe to Ko-fi Gold to unlock more features and support the development of the platform. We prefer to think of creators as valued customers not as a product for the platform to sell and that’s why we created Gold.
Sure, complementing Patreon with Ko-fi for one-off tips or commissions is a great way to increase your earnings without having to produce new content.
Just add your PayPal email address when you sign up or connect to Stripe after signup, it takes less than a minute to setup your page.
