Patreon as an alternative to MemberSpace

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I am working with a potential client and they wish to have content available only to those who have purchased a membership. We have discussed MemberSpace, and even the option to simply use a password protected page (not ideal), but there is some hesitation around the pricing of MemberSpace, specifically the 4% fee for each member sign up on top of the monthly cost.

The client has mentioned Patreon as the membership model she wants to use but I don't think this is compatible with SQSP. 

Does anyone know if this is not the case and know if w CAN use Patreon on SQSP, OR does anyone know of any other alternatives out there for such a membership platform that can be used with SQSP?

Thanks!

Hi Brennan,

  • I haven't seen Patreon used with Squarespace before but it seems like their pricing has higher % fees (starting at 8%) than the ones you already mentioned — are there specific aspects of Patreon they're looking to implement?
  • I guess you already looked into this, but Squarespace password-protected pages is an option since Squarespace can protect the pages from their side (more secure than the other options you'd be looking at)
  • Memberstack is a membership platform that does offer 1% fees or lesser, depending on the scale at which your client is planning to use it and the pricing plan that might best fit them.

Hope that helps!

Hi - I'm interested in the functionality of the Square Studio plugin, but I agree that there seems to be an issue with the subscribe button on their demo page.  Did you end up using it?  What was your experience like?  If you did - can you share the URL so I can see it in action?
