The earnings number listed on your profile page is the public approximate number you make each month or per creation. You can choose to publicly display your earnings or hide them from your creator page.
We understand that not all creators want to display their monthly earnings. While publicly showing your earnings can be helpful to attract patrons when you’re starting out, sometimes it's not right for your brand or image.
Note: You’ll know that your earnings are publicly visible by the badge displayed under your profile image. It will say “Private” if your earnings are hidden.
To change your earnings visibility from public to private:
Step 1: Navigate to your and click on payments from the upper menu.
Step 2: Once in your payments tab, scroll down to the bottom of the page. You can set your earning visibility to either private or public. Don’t forget to click save changes afterward!
That's it! Now your earnings will be hidden or publicly shown across all of Patreon.
Earnings Visibility and Goals
You may want to update your goals when changing to a private earnings model. By default, your goals will be reworded to reflect the percentage of your goal that has been achieved, but you can also choose to change your goals to be based on the number of patrons rather than a certain dollar amount.
To update your goals to community-based:
- Navigate to your and click on goals.
Note: you may need to expand the goal type section if it's not already expanded. To do this, simply click edit.
- If the goal type section is expanded, click community-based goals
- Click Save Preference.
Please note: Your profile will always display either goals or patron number.
