Hey All, I just wanted to get a quick clarification on whether Pay What You Want titles would be considered a form of donation for the purpose of uploading content based on popular IPs.
I'm designing (rather have designed), extensively playtested, formatted, and commissioned art for a D&D 5th Edition class based in a popular piece of media, and was curious to see if it's above board to upload it to Itch as a PWYW release, or if something like that would just be better leveraged on something like Patreon.
My main issue with Patreon VS. Itch.io is that Patreon seems to favor a "monthly grind", whereas Itch is much more agreeable with an "occasional content" approach. Obviously though, Patreon income very strictly counts as a donation, however,, it's much more broad and less focused on individual products, whereas Itch.io is much more targeted.
I'd appreciate any info on the subject to help me wrap my head around what is or isn't feasible here-
And thank you in advance!
