Q) I SIGNED UP TO BE A MEMBER ON PATREON. WHEN AM I OFFICIALLY A MEMBER?

A) When you sign up for Patreon, you'll notice that no money is deducted from your account right away. That's because Patreon processes all the membership dues on or near the 1st of the month. It takes a few days for the payments to process, so on or near the 5th of each month we're able to process them on our end. So if you've pledged to be a member weeks before the 1st of the month, you'll have to wait a little bit before you're officially a member, but don't worry. It's definitely worth the wait!
