All the Features You Need
Ko-fi has everything you need to make an income from your work.
Ko-fi is the easiest way for you to start making an income directly from your fans. You can accept donations, create membership tiers, open an online shop, and take commissions all with 0-5% platform fees.
Artists, Streamers, Podcasters, Writers, Crafters, Photographers, Filmmakers, Cosplayers and all kinds of creators use Ko-fi.
Instantly and directly into your PayPal or Stripe account. We take 0% fees from donations and we don't hold onto your money. It goes directly from your supporter to you. Simple!
Unlike pretty much everyone else, we don't take a cut from your donations! Premium features like Memberships, Ko-fi Shop and Commissions can either be paid for via a small subscription to Ko-fi Gold or a low 5% transaction fee. You decide.
Not at all! We do love coffee, but it's just a friendly metaphor. So many creators have told us it's just much nicer to ask fans to "buy a coffee" than just "donate" to support your work. You can also change "coffee" to something else, or switch to a traditional donation mode.
Start making an income on Ko-fi regardless of how big your audience is. Thousands of creators make their first money on Ko-fi and some have earned more than $100k in donations alone!
Creators tell us Ko-fi is a simpler, lower pressure alternative to Patreon and you can also do so much more with Ko-fi. Take donations, crowdfund, sell products and offer commission requests all from one place.
You keep more of your money on Ko-fi too. We take 0% cut of donations and there are no platform fees at all for Ko-fi Gold creators!
You can take donations or payments in most currencies, but you can save on any currency conversion fees and receive support directly by choosing a base currency of USD, CAD, EUR, GBP, AUD, IRD, YEN or THB.
