Discord server owners can now make money by offering Patreon-like subscription tiers


In December 2021, Discord began testing a new feature called Premium Memberships (opens in new tab) that gave community creators the ability to charge for access to some or all of their servers. At the time, it was limited to a “select handful” of Discord communities, but now it’s been rolled out to all server owners in the US under a new name: Server Subscriptions (opens in new tab).

The Server subscription feature is exactly what it sounds like: Server owners can offer multi-tiered subscription plans for “unique roles, perks, and benefits” on their servers. Pricing is wide open—you can charge what you want for whatever options you like—and Discord will take a relatively small cut of 10% (plus possible “refunds, chargebacks, and associated fees”) of any payments earned.
