Ko-fi is the only platform we know of that charges 0% fees on donations. Because of Ko-fi we were able to buy better equipment to improve the quality of our videos!

I chose Ko-fi because 0% fees meant all of the money I raised to support coffee shops during lockdown went straight to them!

With Ko-fi donations I was able to create an artbook collection I always wanted to have. It keeps on growing and inspiring me.

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 Subscriptions, 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.

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!

We're built and owned by creators since 2012. We're not funded by venture capitalists pushing for the next $1b or bust companies. We've passionately grown Ko-fi to 500k creators by focusing on what creators need not what outside funders want.

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.
