Choosing A Monetisation Site

First off, we need to talk about how to physically monetise your Discord server. You need to be aware of the cut margins used on the most popular platforms. Using a site with a low cut rate, like whop.com will mean that you get to keep the most of your profits!

Profit Cut Rates for Various Subscription-Based Sites

Site Cut Rate
Whop 3%
Patreon 5-12%
Buy Me A Coffee 5%
Kofi 5%

We can see there from the table that Patreon (the most popular) site takes the largest cut. As a creator, you want to earn as much as you possibly can, so make the right choice. Choose Whop for the lowest fees on your own money!
