Don't worry about handling memberships with Patreon or Memberful or, in some particularly worrisome cases, a very confusing Excel file. Buttondown makes it easy to charge and earn a living (or some nice extra cash) while writing. And all of that money ends up in your pocket.
Buttondown processes payments and credit cards through Stripe, which is PCI-certified, encrypted-at-rest, and handles millions of transactions every day.
Set up your account, click a button or two, and you're ready to go.
Unlike most services, Buttondown doesn't take a margin on the revenue you earn: you don't have to pay more money just because you earn more from your paid subscriptions.
Unlike Substack, you can charge in whatever currency you want. Euros, kroners, baht, forint: they're all fair game.
Want to allow your readers to support your work without forcing a specific price? Buttondown makes it easy for them to name their own price, and you can choose whether or not you want to gate your writing behind a paywall or not.
Buttondown gives you the data and insights you need to keep your premium content healthy and profitable.
