Ko-fi is free to use as a platform for creatives to share their premium craft, ideas, and messages. It is a bridge between creators and their fans. Where audiences get premium stuff for the price of one coffee and creatives can boost their income and thus focus primarily on art.
Ko-fi clients get their funds from one-time subscriptions. However, unlike many similar platforms, Ko-fi does not end up there and also works as a market where fans can buy stuff directly from artists. People can buy animations, videos, sketches, drawings, illustrations, but even more unusual things like training lessons or audio packages. Most of the goods are made custom according to the fan's imagination. That is why Ko-fi fits novice creators as well. Audiences find there many artists, writers, podcasters, but also the cosplayers and bloggers.
The platform provides options to make a gallery, set up crowdfunding goals, share daily posts, create exclusive rewards, or connect Ko-fi accounts with customers' blogs. The audience can pay via Stripe or Paypal.
In the base, Ko-fi is a free platform. However, customers have the option to buy a Gold version and get a golden badge with more personal space, exclusive posts, options for fans to set recurring monthly payments, 0% commissions fees, change coffee to anything from pizza to beer, which means larger subscription amounts. Gold members also get the option to shorten their nick, ad-free platform, higher-quality images in their gallery, analytics insights to see incoming new fans, how they act, and what they are buying and get new features first.
