Patreon is a platform that allows bloggers like you to get paid by running a membership business for your fans.
How it works?
You have a blog, your fans found it attractive and want to reward your hard work by donating with an amount of their choice. All you need to start is a Patreon page and our Patreon widget (or section).
To use the Patreon on your site, you will need:
- a Patreon page
- the AdAce plugin
Create your Patreon page
Starting your page on Patreaon is fairly easy. Just go the Patreon site and click "Stary My Page" button. Write your mission statement and that's all. From now, everyone can become your patron and support you by giving a donation.
Set up Patreon inside the theme
First, you should explain your fans why you ask them for donation. To do it, please go to the WordPress Admin › Settings › AdAce › Patreon. Here is a place where you can add your Patreon page url and describe your statement.
Display Patreon in a sidebar
Please go to the WordPress Admin › Appearance › Widgets and place the AdAce Patreon widget in a target sidebar (Home, Single Post or Footer).
Display Patreon before the Home main collection
Please go to the WordPress Admin › Appearance › Customize › Home › Before Main Collection and check the Show Patreon option.
Display Patreon before the footer
Please go to the WordPress Admin › Appearance › Customize › Footer › Modules and check the Show Patreon option. You can change here the order of elements before footer using drag & drop UI.
