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!

Subscription payments for anything are a scourge on mankind. That is my opinion. One payment, that's it. You make me keep paying, you don't get a sale. It would have to be very, very, very exceptional for me to break my rule of going subscription based. Stop continually taking my money for it. And especially stop taking my money for it if you know I am no longer logging into your site and using your services. No scruples most people who accept subscription based payments. Or they make it difficult to break the payments. Sorry, clearly not a fan here(of the subscription based ideology).

This is fantastic, but it would be much more useful if we could set a minimum lifetime pledge amount so that anyone that's already pledged the price of the game can access it even if it was spread over multiple months of support.

good,good and good!
