How to choose between Memberful and Patreon. What’s the difference?
Both Memberful and Patreon offer membership software, but Memberful is focused on building a decentralized white-label membership solution that lives on your website and integrates with your favorite third-party tools and services; while Patreon is more focused on providing an all-in-one solution.
Patreon is probably right for creators who:
- Want an all-in-one membership program hosted on Patreon in addition to their own website
- Want a robust set of tools for engaging with their patrons
- Value high-quality customer service for them and their patrons
- Value community with other creators
- Want all payment processing, chargebacks, refunds and fraud prevention handled by Patreon
Memberful is probably right for creators who:
- Want 100% control over their brand
- Want to build and manage their own website or membership program exclusively through their own website, and have the technical resources to do so
- Want to manage their own customer service for their members
- Want to use their own payment processor account
