Misinformation Alert!


We have been recently accused of being a “one-stop-shop” and a safe haven for neo-Nazis and fascists of all sorts.

We would want you all to know that we are not.

Furthermore, some of our grandparents gave their lives while fighting with the real Nazis, which we all remember every day of our lives.

And while some accusations can be easily disregarded as a mere violation of journalistic ethics, others feel more politically charged and strongly biased toward well know political groups and parties. Such stories and rants do look to us as a hit piece ordered by a cartel of tech giants to eliminate any fair competition.

With that said, we follow the Freedom of Speech principles and will consistently protect our customers and ourselves from any such mob attacks.

Yours truly,
SubscribeStar team

Brand Guidelines and Assets

Finally, for all of you who wanted to incorporate our brand in their product, for everyone who wants to add "Support me on SubscribeStar" button/banner to their application or a website - here goes, page "Brand Guidelines and Assets" went live.

At the moment you can download our identity pieces - logotype, logomark, and a combination mark for all your needs. Add to the bundle some generic buttons and banners that can come handy while you spreading the word about your SubscribeStar profile.

New features for Creators and more subscription business insights.
There are 4 sections SubscribeStar supporters may find under menu -> Analytics.

The chart on the left displays an amount collected per tier, the chart on the right - number of pledges per tier.
Pledges by Country
The map shows how much pledges in USD you received so far from each country.
The Income chart
Reflects total earnings from your Star Profile. It doesn't include income received from referral activity. The blue line is your daily income (tension) and the green line is your total income (cumulative).

The left vertical axis, Daily scale, corresponds to the blue line. The right vertical axis, Cumulative scale, used to measure the Total Income Amount accumulated from the beginning of 2020 and corresponds to the green line.
Each section has a monthly breakdown.

This chart reflects all received payments unrelated to subscriptions. These payments are made via Tips feature by both subscribers and visitors of your profile page.

Income Sources
This chart reflects distribution of your income with respect to the source.

Manual payments include all new subscription pledges and Tips (one-off pledges). These charts do not reflect a referral income.

Combined Tiers Income
This Chart reflects a combined income amount (in USD) generated by each tier starting 2020 up to each date.

The high price of the tier isn't always directly translates to the high income from this tier.

Blurred Post Previews are out!

As per creators' requests, we closed another important ticket from stars' Trello board.

Any visitor of your page, who doesn't have an access to a post, will see a blurred preview, truncated title and informational preview about attachments and links in the post.

If you are willing to test it out, just logout and see your landing page as other visitors may see it.

Categories

As some of you already noticed, a couple of days ago we've rolled out Categories. You can manage categories under your Profile Settings.

This feature will help potential Subscribers to discover your profile faster, therefore increasing the chance for earning more.

We will continue building more functionality on top of the Categories. With all that being said, we strongly recommend assigning at least a few to your profile. Using categories will greatly increase your exposure to the potential Subscribers who are just surfing our site, looking for somebody to send pledges to.

Dear Friends,

To those Stars who would want to accept payouts from SubscribeStar without using their own personal bank account: you can use electronic payments instead.

You can use any trusted and reliable international payment provider that takes the hassle out of receiving money internationally using SWIFT, ACH, Wire. Find out more on the internet.


Yours truly,

SubscribeStar Support Team

Dear Friends,

In order to stay compliant with our strategic credit card processing partners' policies and due to recently tightened regulations on the cryptocurrency circulation for the US-based companies, we are going to halt all support for cryptocurrency payments on this site for the time being.

For all our content creators who are willing to continue accepting payments in cryptocurrencies, we strongly encourage to share your personal crypto wallet address/number on your profile page for all subscribed to see. You also can publish your wallet address on Public Post so anybody can see, not only your subscribers. This way you will retain your crypto donation option without getting into a risk of going over the thin red line.

Considering the extremely low volume of processed payments via cryptocurrencies, we believe this move will not affect our community that much but will make our and your business safer and more bulletproof.

Yours truly, SubscribeStar Team

To all our EU subscribers,

In accordance with the law, SubscribeStar will charge VAT at the standard rate on the services provided to you, effective on your next billing cycle.

VAT will be charged in addition to the advertised subscription rates and will be paid to the appropriate Federal Tax Authority of your country in compliance with the VAT legislation.

The exact amount of VAT charged is going to be clearly stated on a receipt that you will be getting upon every charge.

To our Stars: no actions required on your side - we will collect and pay VAT associated with your profile to the appropriate Federal Tax Authority of related country.

Dear Friends,

As you might have noticed, we have removed our site-wide message, which means we are more or less back on track with our normal operations. The exceptions are our large profiles with hundreds and thousands of subscribers - they are still waiting to be taken care of.

With that being said, we are still in a process of establishing a robust multilayered payment framework that depends on multiple third parties, instead of just one or two. This aforementioned framework relies on some technical and legal procedures that are somewhat lengthy and are still underway.

During the past week, we have re-enabled dozens of existing small and medium-sized profiles, reviewed and accepted hundreds of new profiles. The absolute majority of the profiles that we received with the "EXPEDITE" label were reviewed and promptly accepted.

We have received reports on a handful of bugs from our customers and we are grateful for that. We also received even more feature requests, some of which are genuinely unique and some of them are on our "to do list" for some time already. All these inputs are greatly appreciated.

Our plan for this upcoming week is to start enabling larger profiles and progress further with applying our multifaceted payment solution.

Thank you all for your patience and support!

Dear Friends,

We are at the point when we start getting back to our normal operations. Starting this Monday, we will begin charging live accounts of the existing subscribers in order to restore money flow to our content creators. Simultaneously, we will enable a few selected profiles to accept new subscribers.

Started with smaller size accounts, we will progress towards the bigger ones, just to keep the load under control while testing everything along the way.

After we done with the processing of all existing billings, we will get back to the long list of applications that are waiting in line for the review and approval. And right after that, we will enable all profiles to accept new subscribers and receive donations. At the same time subscribers, who joined the “free tier” with $0 subscription price may change the subscription tier to ones with real USD values.


Always yours,

SubscribeStar.com Team

Dear Friends,

This is an update on the situation with the payment processors.

Passed yet another the longest week in our lives, during which we have done a fair amount of changes throughout the platform - from legal documents to workflow and user-facing features while integrating the payment system. We had just under 50 conference calls speaking with nearly a dozen companies discussing existing and possible solutions. We received literally hundreds of messages of support and dozens of leads to the alternatives for the payment processing. Thank you all for this!

Starting Tuesday, we will begin live testing of the new payment solution. We will start with selected profiles and will proceed carefully from there - we wouldn't want to dwarf our previous effort and ruin your expectation by rushing into this.

Most of the technical preparations are over. Most of the Stars have been paid out. ETA for the new solution for everybody is next week.


Always yours,

SubscribeStar.com Team

Dear friends,

Just a quick update, so you know we are here and are moving forward.

In the last couple of days, many of you have asked if there is a progress of any sort. Yes, there is progress, considering we have holidays season. In spite of that, we have managed to solidify one agreement to process payments and are working on the backup one. At the moment we can not reveal what the solutions are - you will find out really soon. We work hard on both fronts - legal and technical - to integrate payment options that will be more robust than ones we used before.

Also, subscribers should know - their admired Stars are receiving payouts on daily basis.

We would want to thank you for being patient and staying calm.


Always yours,

SubscribeStar.com Team

We just delivered this message to our Stars.

"Dear Star,

As you already likely know, the payment processors that we have been using for over a year have just canceled their services with us. We stand firm in our resolve that we will not use PayPal in any shape or form in the foreseeable future. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

At this time, your supporters cannot donate or subscribe to your account. Given this unfortunate and very temporary situation, we added the ability for new users to subscribe for free. If this interests you, please utilize a $0 tier to take advantage of this option.

These payment processors nebulously claim that we have not complied with their policies. PayPal has not given us any further explanation whatsoever. Stripe has frozen our funds and given us 14 days to reshape our business model beyond the point of any business sense, quoting the following:

"Aggregation involves accepting payments on behalf of other individuals/entities and obscuring the payout of these funds. We can’t support this type of setup because it prevents Stripe from screening these individuals/entities for money laundering, terrorist financing, and other prohibited activities..."

They further demanded that we remove sponsored content that they find objectionable.

We are certain that our customers would not support the options that Stripe has left open for us; therefore, we have refused to comply. We are instead working towards integrating other payment processing options. A large percentage of the monies held by Stipe never reached our bank account, but this will not affect your balance as we will use our personal and company funds to fulfill the payouts, if necessary.

In providing this update, we ask that you stay calm and rest assured that all of your monies will be paid to you promptly upon request. We will be enabling payout via bank info from your Payout page and can assist you in entering the required information if you so need.

Truly yours,

SubscribeStar.com Team"
