How to use Patreon to support an artist you care about


Good for you! You've decided to support an artist on Patreon. If you're not familiar with how to do it, don't worry, you don't need to be a "computer wizard" to do it.

You start by going to the artist's Patreon page. Here's mine https://www.patreon.com/PhoenixHistoryAdventuring You don't have to type anything in, you just click on the link, and it will take you to the page. Your artist, of course, will need to send you their link. They can do it in your email, or they can do it in Facebook, or any way you want to.

Click on this button on the artist's page

Once you get there, you'll see a big red rectangle that says "Become a Patron". Click on it, and it will take you to a page that will allow you to choose the amount that you want to give. Once you're there, you'll see a page like this, and after that it will take you to pages where you can decide how to pay, just like any other online store. If you've ever purchased anything on Amazon, or places like that, it's the same. There are security things, of course. A bit of a hassle, but worth it, because it protects you.

Where the "Become a Patron" button takes you, so you can choose the amount you want to donate.

It does take a few steps, of course, but the good news is that after you've done this, you don't have to do anything else. Your donation will go to the artist monthly.

So go ahead and support that artist, it's a great feeling!
