All the Features You Need
Ko-fi has everything you need to make an income from your work.
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 if you like. You can even 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!
Patreon is great if you're at a point where your audience are prepared to support you monthly and you can commit to create lots of new content for multiple tiers every month. Creators tell us Ko-fi is a simpler, lower pressure alternative to Patreon and many Patreon creators earn more on Ko-fi than they did on Patreon!
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, AUS, IRD, YEN or THB.
