I would definitely recommend it especially for people just starting out or something less formal. Even as a supporter I like BMC the best. Like you said it combines the best of Ko-fi and Patreon while leaving out the annoyances of the them.

So I discovered a legit platform which combine Ko-fi and Patreon features in one! But better. Some of its great features is called Extras where you can offer goods/benefits. You can also give away Extras for free.

Creator-friendly and we mean it.

Our founders were creators who lived on a moderate advertising income from their creative gigs. Although $500 per month is what you pay for a gym membership in San Francisco, it's enough to make a living in many parts of the world. If it weren't for those Adsense checks, there would be no Buy Me a Coffee. We get what every coffee means to you. ✊


Ok, I’m ready. How do I make the switch?

If you're already on Ko-fi, you can set up a page on Buy Me a Coffee using the same Stripe account. As for inviting your Ko-fi followers, we'd recommend publishing a post on Ko-fi about the switch, and updating all your social pages.
