Patreon integration on itch.io

We're delighted to announce that we now have Patreon integration on itch.io. We're big fans of Patreon, with a similar goal of helping creators make an earning building what they want. Many of our creators are already using Patreon to support their work so it's been a common request to allow patrons from Patreon to get access to developer's itch.io projects.

Starting now you can now offer access to your itch.io pages to your Patreon patrons. In order to get started you just need to connect your Patreon creator account to your itch.io account, select your campaign, then share the claim URL with your patrons. We use the Patreon API to verify your patrons to make sure the correct people get access. You can configure a minimum pledge level required to get access to your itch.io project page.

We've updated our creator documentation with a new page on Patreon, check it out: Distribute to your Patreon patrons 

After connecting your Patreon campaign, patrons can get access by verifying their pledge status. It looks like this:

Patreon link support

We've updated our list of external link types to include Patreon. If you have a campaign for your itch.io project please add the link to make it easy for others to discover. Head over to Edit > Metadata > External Links to set it up.

Enjoy!

Awesome

Thank you so much

Thank you so much

This is amazing It will help us small indie developers to get a huge start 

So glad to hear!

I have a doubt. When someone is a patreon they can claim a content of mine in itch io. But when he stops being my patreon, he will still have access to my project? Even if he is not my patreon anymore?

Think like this:

What stops anyone from just buying the game, downloading it and keeping it after returning or when you give it out via Patreon they can claim it also, I think it's really hard to make a system that functions well for people like you who have doubts, people who simply exploit such things and people that really just want to be patreons.

Many people see patreon as a one time purchase thing because you can just do that, for like a month or whatever and keep what you got.

tldr; not easy to revoke access to something you have already on your disk, and if you don't include some sort of drm there's nothing stopping anyone from sharing it with friends or post it somewhere.

Some people can be jerks, but there's some nice people on this world too :)

Thanks for answer!

"tldr; not easy to revoke access to something you have already on your disk, and if you don't include some sort of drm there's nothing stopping anyone from sharing it with friends or post it somewhere."
I was trying to say the acces from download it again on itch io. I know that when people are already with it on they hard disk, there's no way to block their acces(and I will never want to do that too).

But yes, you are right. I will don't care about this anymore, I will do my job and let people free if they want or not to contribute many times as he/she wants ^^

Thanks for your time! :)

Nice to hear that you agree, the peops programming this site do the best they can to satisfy everyone, but that's simply impossible. 

I wish you a nice week, and don't forget why most people are here, for sharing passion projects and showing off your hobbies or whatever.

:)

Thanks!!! :)

Many thanks!
