I have a question about Patreon and royalties. I might be making this more complex than it really needs to be but this is what I’m thinking:
If a patron joins in January and pays $5 towards access to a “game demo” but they continue to pay monthly $5 after that for 2 months without getting any extra game updates or content during those months, does the 2 x $5 extra they paid count as a donation and therefore royalty free?
I guess what I’m saying is does every month of a patrons subscription count towards royalties even if that month got them nothing extra or are those months royalty free?
I’m probably over thinking this! But I’d be really grateful if someone could clear it up for me please.
