Patreon processes payments on the 1st of each month for pledges made the previous month. If a creator is using our charge upfront beta, we process payments immediately when a patron pledges and then again on the 1st of the next month.
Pledges automatically renew on the 1st of every month. If you wish to cancel your pledge, you need to delete your pledge prior to the 1st of the next month to avoid another charge.
