Many content creators from platforms such as YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, and others have an account on Patreon which they use to further monetize their content.
Patreon is the place where a content creator can improve engagement with their followers and where a user can engage more with their favorite content creator. A win-win for both sides.
To establish even better communication with an audience, content creators usually add Discord roles as a reward for a donation/tier subscription.
Whether you want to join a specific content creator’s Discord or you want to add your Discord server as a tier reward, we will cover everything you need to know in this article.
Connecting Your Patreon Account To Discord
If you want to become a part of a certain server through Patreon, you will first need to connect your account with Discord. Here’s how you can do that:
Click on your profile picture (top right) and select My profile settings. Once you get into settings, you will need to select the Apps tab.
Once in the Apps tab, you should see Discord as an option and a Connect button. This will automatically redirect you to Discord’s website where you can authorize the required connection.
Within a few seconds, you should have established the connection and now you can finally access Discord roles provided by your favorite content creators.
However, if you are a content creator and you want to provide said Discord roles to your audience, follow the guide below.
Connecting Your Patreon To A Discord Server
To add a Discord role as part of your tier rewards, click on your profile picture and select Finish page. In here, look for the Tiers tab.
On the Tiers page, pick whichever tier you want to edit and just click Edit tier. Alternatively, you can add a completely new tier by clicking on the Add tier button below.
While editing the tier, scroll down a bit and expand the Advanced menu.
Under Advanced, you will find the option Discord Roles. Click on Connect to Discord and this should immediately redirect you to Discord where you will need to specify the server and provide the proper authorization.
Now refresh the Patreon page, expand the Advanced menu again and enable Gives patrons access to selected Discord roles. Below this option, you will have to choose exactly which role you want your patrons to have access to.
We advise that you already have your roles ready before you go through this process. If you create them after connecting to Discord, make sure to refresh the page to see all the new roles.
That is all you have to do. Every member that buys this tier from now on will have access to a certain Discord role on your server. Remember, you can (and you should) add a different role for every tier.
