What is MakerSupport

MakerSupport is a platform on which makers – people who do creative work and put it out into the world – can make a living doing what they love. MakerSupport is made by content creators for the benefit of content creators.

By using MakerSupport, you agree to these terms, and you agree to abide by our community guidelines. Additionally, by continuing to use MakerSupport, you agree to abide by all future versions of these terms as well as future versions of the community guidelines.

Users and Accounts

Names, usernames, profile pictures, and cover pictures will appear publicly on the site. Financial information, and private messages will always remain private. Creators who receive funds will have access to view the email addresses of their supporters, in order to facilitate communication between both parties regarding pledge rewards.

To create an account, you must be at least 13 years of age. To make pledges or to receive funds, you must be at least 18 years of age. If you are under the age of 18, you may send or receive funds with the permission of a parent or guardian.

Community Guidelines

We retain the right to remove content we believe to be in violation of the MakerSupport Community Guidelines. The community guidelines are not exhaustive. We may remove content not explicitly prohibited by the community guidelines, and we may amend the community guidelines from time to time without advance notice.

Whenever these terms or the community guidelines are changed, we will announce the change publicly on Twitter and on MakerSupport.

Processing Fees

We charge a small processing fee for each transaction made through MakerSupport. These fees are used to build and to maintain the platform.

The third-party payment processor we use takes 5% on average. The fee taken by MakerSupport to maintain the service is always less than 5%. The remaining amount – slightly above 90% – is sent to the content creators.

These percentages vary slightly depending on the donation amount, but the fee taken by MakerSupport will never exceed 5% of the donation amount.
