Free music promotion site Patreon has started accepting ad-sponsored subscriptions, and it’s all thanks to a team of developers at The Washington Post.
The ad-support service lets users sign up for ad-free access to Patreon by simply signing up for a new account, and then simply clicking the ‘Ad Support’ button at the top of the site.
Once the service is installed, Patreon allows users to create an account for the service, set up their own profile, and subscribe to the content of their choice.
Patreon also has an ad blocker, so if you’re not on the same ad-blocking list as the people who make the content, you won’t see any ads while you’re using the service.
If you’re interested in getting a subscription to Patreon, head to Patreon’s website, click on ‘Sign Up Now’ in the sidebar, and hit ‘Sign up now’.
The signup process can take up to 30 minutes, and the service can also take a few days to process.
Patreon is available in more than 20 countries, and has been supported in the U.S. for a long time.
As a platform for creators to monetize their content, Patreon has become a critical part of the publishing industry, and this new ad-subscription service will only accelerate the growth of this community.
