Payments

Pay Only When You Succeed

At Memberse, we believe in empowering creators to take control of their monetization. That’s why it’s free to get started on our platform. We only earn a small percentage when you start earning from your followers, and we charge an industry-standard rate for payment processing.

Here’s a breakdown of our fees:

Payment Options

TL;DR: On Memberse, our goal is to simplify Fan-Creator payments as much as possible. It’s important to note that Apple (iPhone) does not allow other payment methods besides its own. If you want to earn more, you can ask your followers to join and pay on our Web App or Android. They can later use the iOS app for watching exclusive content and engaging with other members of the community, similar to Spotify and other platforms.

Note: Please note that there is a minimum fee for Paid DMs, so we recommend setting your price at $2 or higher to ensure that Stripe’s fee is not too high in comparison to the payment amount.

There are several differences between the two payment options. By choosing Stripe on the Web, you’ll benefit from lower fees, instant payment processing times, and more flexibility and customization options. Plus, you can incentivize your followers to use Stripe for payments, which can ultimately lead to more earnings for you.

On the other hand, if you set IAP price on the App, you’ll benefit from the ease of use and security of Apple’s payment system, with payments processed through the App Store. However, keep in mind that the fees are higher and payment processing times can take up to 40-70 days.

Currencies

It’s important to note that there are differences in how currencies are handled between Stripe on the Web and Android and IAP on iOS. With Stripe, you can set your prices, choosing if you want to use dollars or euros. However, with IAP, the price you set may not be the price seen by your followers due to Apple adjusting the IAP prices based on the followers location. It’s important to keep this in mind when choosing a payment option and setting prices for your content.

No matter which payment option you choose, we’re here to support you every step of the way. If you have any questions or need assistance with payment processing, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our support team.

Now you can go ahead and choose the payment option that’s right for you and your unique needs.
