We understand that not all creators want to display their monthly earnings. While showing that can be really helpful in attracting patrons when you're just starting out, sometimes it's just not right for your brand or image.
Note: there's an indicator on your profile of whether your earnings are currently private or public:
To change your earnings visibility from public to private
- Navigate to your Editor and click on Payments.
- Select either Private or Public and be sure to click "Save Preferences" to up upper right.
That's it! Now your earnings will be hidden 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 Editor 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 earnings.
