Sther is a socially-conscious crowdsourcing, subscription-based platform. Like Patreon, the platform allows creators to make a profile page that promotes their work. Followers can subscribe at different pledge levels and creators provide exclusive content in return for the pledge.
Sther is a benefit corporation that focuses on promoting and supporting creators from underrepresented/marginalized backgrounds and their allies. This doesn't mean that your content should be focused on these issues, it just means that we are declaring that you matter and that we're actively working for you. We know that women, LGBTQ+ and people of color regularly face abuse online for challenging the status quo. We're tired of seeing this happen and that's why we created sther. When you join our platform, you benefit from a policy of dealing with abuse though a community-based consensus decision-making process (see our blog for more information). We also encourage those who are still building a following to join the site. Many platforms are only interested in those people who already have a strong following online because that maximizes their profit. We want to help you build a community around your content, that grows your earnings and ours!... More Info »
Unlike Patreon and others that take anywhere from 5-10% of your profit, Sther's fee is only 3%. Patreon also tend to hang on to your money for extended periods of time. Sther does not. If Stripe is available in your country, the money you make from subscriptions goes directly into your account as soon as it's charged, so you have full control of when your money transfers to your bank account.
