We're sending a reminder that Labor Day is on Monday, September 6th, and is observed as a US federal bank holiday. This means that all payments or deposits made through the Federal Reserve will be delayed until Tuesday/Wednesday.
Tier forms have been updated with the additional fields of Trial and Free tier periods. The trial period is trivial, the second one requires an explanation.
The Free period extends the very first paid subscription period to a specified number of days (up to 365). Tier upgrade to a tier with a free access period extends paid subscription period to a number of days as if subscriber joined the new tier originally on the very first date of their subscription. Find details in the attached images.
We updated logic of the subscribers counter on Star Profile page. For majority of the Stars the number won't be significantly different. We are still making adjustments to the formulas to reflect a reality. Please let us know which option works best for you:
Did you know that you can create a free tier for what many creators call "followers"? We call them "subscribers who don't pay" :) Navigate to your Profile Page Settings and just add a new tier with the price set to 0.
When you post, followers receive updates into their email inbox.
They have access only to your public posts and prompted to pay for the rest
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.
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.
With time we will be adding code-based pieces that you will be able to embed directly to your favorite CMS.
Feel free to request custom sized buttons/banners that will suit your project, or send us your designs. Send your inquiries to [email protected].
New features for Creators and more subscription business insights. There are 4 sections SubscribeStar supportersmay find under menu -> Analytics.

Combined Tiers Income

Per many creator requests, we released Alpha-version of comment replies and enabled it for a limited number of star profiles. Comments and replies now appear to all page visitors as soon as those added (like in a chat app). We'll continue improving communication tools on the website.
-- Also this update includes some improvements in Webhooks API:
extra request headers
HMAC signature has been added as well
Also webhooks are now logged and if you need any additional info, we'll be able to pull it for you.
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.
