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 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!

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 membership 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.
