So you have decided to join and support someone on their creative journey. Kudos to you because it's the best thing you can do for a creator! Now, allow us to help you join a creator's community with multiple levels and many rewards.

We will be paving our way through topics one at a time. Here's everything that we are going to cover.

  • Becoming a member

  • Accessing membership content

  • Managing your membership payments

Let's go ahead and get started.

Becoming a member

Step 1

Go on to the creator's Buy Me a Coffee page. If you don't have their page URL, you can look them up using the search option on your home page.

Step 2

While you are on their page, slide your eyes to the right. Click on the membership widget. You are offered a list of multiple membership levels to choose from. The levels are unique. They will have different names, prices, and rewards.

Select the one that works best for you, select between yearly and monthly membership subscriptions, type in your email address and name, and finally, hit that Join button!

Don't forget to say something nice; it will bring a smile to the creator's face :) You can keep your message private to the creator by clicking on the check box.

Just so you know, your membership subscription will be linked to your email address, So while entering the email, please make sure you have access to the email and double-check for any typos.

Step 3

You can enter your card details to complete your membership payment.

Also, If you love what this creator does and want to contribute more than the minimum amount, you can use the "choose what you pay" option and subscribe at a higher price.

Congratulations!🎉 You have subscribed to a creator and become a member. You can check your email to find a welcome email from the creator, along with your subscription details.

Accessing membership content

Many creators share exclusive posts via their membership levels. If your creator has listed access to members-only posts as a membership reward, you will have easy access to them right from your account. Here's how -

Step 1

You can log in to your member account using the email address you used for the subscription.

Step 2

All the latest posts from the creator will be listed on your home page; click on a post to open it. Additionally, you can click on the creator's profile icon from the top of your home page to view all their posts.

Step 3

If you are looking for a specific post, you can use the search posts option and find the post.

Manage your membership payments

To view your membership payment details, click on your profile icon in the top right corner, click on "My Account" and click on the payments tab. Here, you can view and update your card details.

Your membership payments will be charged every 30/365 days (based on your membership plan, monthly/yearly) from the date of your first payment. And, if by any chance, your membership payment fails to go through, this is what you can do -

1. Ensure that you have enough funds to complete the membership payment. You must have an adequate amount in your account when a payment fails.

2. If your current card has expired, you can easily add a new card using the "Add a new card" option on your payments page. Your new card will be automatically updated as your active card.

3. If the card account used for your membership subscription is no longer in use, you can cancel and resubscribe to the creator using your new card.

Note: Buy Me a Coffee allows a ten days grace period for all payment failures so that members have enough time to update their payment details. You will also be given access to the membership content for these ten days.
