Default Patreon's payment processing problems create headaches

The subscription platform Patreon enables people to directly support creators (game makers, streamers, authors, and more) with monthly donations. But due to processing issues, a large chunk of these payments were declined and marked as fraud.

Patreon posted that itís looking into the problem, and has suggested that people reach out directly to their subscribers ó called patrons ó and ask them to either use a different card or to call their bank.

Sounds like a headache for both the content creators and the patrons. Is Patreon having issues like this often btw? Anyone using it either as a content creator or as a patron?

I didn't see an update on their Twitter feed. This site uses Patreon.

I haven't noticed any problems or been notified about them, though obviously the amount we're processing is very small.
