I have implemented Stripe subscriptions in Intervals.icu. So now you can support the site just by entering your card details and selecting a currency (USD or EUR) and don’t have to leave the site and register with Patreon or anywhere else or have a Paypal account. You can cancel anytime.
The billing is $12 or €10 every 3 months. So same as the $4/month Patreon suggestion but transaction fees are less with quarterly billing.
Why the change? Patreon take almost 20% in fees and Paypal some random (potentially large) amount depending on where you are in the world. Plus flagging people as supporters is all manual and takes time away from development.
Stripe charges for a UK company (Intervals.icu Ltd):
1.4% + 20p for European cards
2.9% + 20p for for non-European cards
So thats why it is $12 per 3 months instead of $4/month.
If you are supporting the site on Patreon and want to continue doing that you don’t have to change anything (and thanks very much to all of you!). However if you would like more of your contribution to go to Intervals.icu please switch to Stripe (there is a button on the /settings page) near the end of the month and cancel Patreon.
If you have donated via PayPal don’t worry about any of this until the site starts reminding you I credited everyone with approx 1 month of supporter per $4 donation. If I missed anyone please let me know!
Thanks again to everyone on Patreon and everyone who has donated so generously!
