New Integration: Establish a Membership Community Around Your Creative Content with Patreon

Without the proper tools, managing payments, engaging your fans, and distributing your creative content online can be a challenge.

Patreon provides a way to create an online membership community for you to engage with your fans (known as patrons). Your patrons can send you payments (referred to as pledges) which allows them exclusive access to your creative work. You can set up per-month pledges to collect a monthly fee or configure per-creation pledges so you’ll get paid whenever you release something new. You’ll get complete control over your payment collection, content distribution, and membership management to help you focus on producing more quality content.

With their integration to Zapier, you can now put your patron and pledge management on autopilot. Add patrons to your email marketing campaigns to keep in touch after an initial pledge, get SMS or email notifications to stay up-to-date with pledge activity, or send personalized “thank you” messages for each new pledge. Let Patreon-Zapier automate your manual work so you can focus on what you enjoy most, producing creative work.

How Patreon Works with Zapier


  • Updated Pledge: Triggers when a pledge has been updated.
  • Delete Pledge: Triggers when an existing pledge is deleted.
  • New Pledge: Triggers when a new pledge is received on a campaign.
