How do I split Patreon revenue?

Last Updated:

October 22, 2021

Patreon Splits automatically run when a creator withdraws funds from their Patreon account and the money enters their bank account. Patreon processes payments on the 1st of every month, though it recommends waiting until the 5th of the month to pay out your balance. Once the money enters your bank account, the Split runs and all your collaborators are paid accordingly.

For example, Sara is an Patreon creator who created a Split on Stir with Julia. When Sara is paid by Patreon and the money enters her bank account, the Split will automatically run by withdrawing Julia's percentage of the total revenue from Sara's bank account and depositing it into Julia's bank account.

How to create a Patreon Split

To create a Split, navigate to the 'Splits' tab and click 'Create Split' in the upper-right corner. The owner of the Patreon account must be the person to create this Split. For example, if Sara and Julia want to split earnings from Sara's Patreon, Sara must create the Split — not Julia.

Select Patreon as your platform

From the platforms displayed, select Patreon.

Select your Split collaborators

Once you select your revenue source, a pop-up will ask you to add your collaborators. These collaborators are your Split recipients, or the people with whom you will split your Patreon revenue.

If you have created a Split with them before, their emails will be displayed under 'Recent recipients.' If you've never shared a Split with them, add them by entering their email.

Adjust your Split collaborators' earnings

Use the sliding scale to adjust the percentage of earnings that each Split participant will receive. Click the 'Make even' button beneath the sliding scale to split the money evenly.

Enter the details in the Split summary

Split Name: name your Split anything that helps you remember what it is!

Message: add a message that your Split members will receive in an email asking them to accept your invitation to the Split.

Pay Out To: click 'Select bank source' and select the bank account that your Patreon payouts go to. You can either select from a list of previously connected bank accounts, or add a new bank account to Stir. To add a new bank account to Stir, Click 'Add Bank Account' and 'Get Started.' Then select your bank, add your credentials, and click 'Submit.'

Confirm your details

Double-check your information and click 'Create Split' to complete the process.

Review your Split summary

The Split summary will provide the following receipt of your Split.

What's next?

Now that you've created your Split, Stir will automatically invite all Split members to the Split. The Split will become active once all members have onboarded to Stir.
