cancel all my accounts

I've tried repeatedly to cancel a couple of my memberships. When I click on the edit link next to the membership all I ever get is the same stupid message day after day after day;

There's a problem with your payment
We're having trouble processing the card you use to pay for this membership. To make changes to this pledge, we need to fix this issue.
How to proceed
If you'd like to try again using your existing card, you can retry the payment. Alternatively, you can use a different payment method to retry with.

Have a Problem with Patreon? Report Issue

Leave a comment:

Why should I report an Issue with Patreon?

  1. Pulling issues faced by users like you is a good way to draw attention of Patreon to your problem using the strength of crowds.
  2. We have developed a system that will try to get in touch with a company once an issue is reported and with lots of issues reported, companies will definitely listen.
  3. Importantly, customers can learn from other customers in case the issue is a common problem that has been solved before.
  4. If you are a Patreon customer and are running into a problem, Justuseapp might not be the fastest and most effective way for you to solve the problem but at least you can warn others off using Patreon.

    Addictive to Crime Junkies Podcast

    After discovering this podcast several months ago and binging everything I could I finally decided today to join Patron. I loved these podcasts from the first episodes and converted a lot of my friends into crime junkie enthusiasts. I can’t (although I’ve tried) listening to other podcasts on murder but no one tells a story better than Ashley and Britt. I want to thank you guys for the abundance of information you have given all of us and the entertainment you’ve provided me with during all hours of my life from morning till night. I hope one day to meet you both at a meet and greet and hear first hand what sparked this all for the both of you. The void I was missing in my life was filled from this podcast <3 love you guys !

    A Great Service to Content Creators

    Even though Patreon just had a small hiccup related to payment processing, I can say that this is one of the best ways to support content creators of any kind. Whether it’s art that artists make or videos that Youtubers create, you can easily support your favorite idols with the integrated tier system that lets you, the user, choose who you want to follow, or how much you want pay. You can even get special rewards from creators themselves as a way to say thanks for your support. Even if you can’t support a creator, you can always cancel a payment and continue following them if you so choose. Remember, it’s all up to you.

    Almost perfect.

    I really love the app, it's a super convenient way to keep track of the artists I like and also keep updated on the content and my pledges without having to get on the computer or comb through my email, however even after having had the app for a few months, it's still kind of hair to navigate. Not impossible but I have found that some of the avenues to get to options that I thought I would find on the main page of an artist are often buried somewhere in my settings. Editing pledges is an example of this. The pages can be a tag glitchy and tend to lag depending on the content, but the scroll works well enough. There is no way to search tags other than scrolling until you find what you're looking for? Also unless you have a Patreon link or you know the specific handle of the person you're looking for, finding someone can be difficult at best.

    A great platform with a few hiccups...

    A great platform for supporting creators and kickstarting one yourself. Though it’s not without some issues, sometimes the video player will close something your in the middle of if you close your phone or switch apps. Sometimes comments you write will inexplicably disappear after posting it, which can be frustrating when being able to comment on certain posts can be a tier for certain projects. And lastly occasionally posts won’t appear on the mobile version. I support Easy Allies a group of video game enthusiasts that make video content, for a long period of time they’re patron exclusive series Cup of Jones never appeared on the mobile app. Thankfully they reached out to patreon and worked this out. Despite a few annoyances Patreon is a great platform and a solid app. I wouldn’t listen to half the podcasts i do without the Mobile version.

    Good, just one request

    I'm mainly writing to request that the audio download tools be expanded. A lot of podcasters use patreon to post extra content, but downloading it via this app puts them all into one long slush-fund of unsearchable, partially named material. It needs to be better: searchable, with easily-accessible episode descriptions, more like Apple's system- if it's gonna allow artists to produce content that I feel are worth paying for. It's good, but it's frustrating to find what I... kind of paid for. In part. Lol It's also stopped letting me control the app from the lock screen, which means I have to unlock my phone and open the app just to pause something; while with iTunes Podcasts, I can just pause it from my Bluetooth headphones. But there's a chance I've got some setting messed up on my phone. Who knows
