It’s entirely up to you and what you think will work best with your fans, given what you plan to offer. Monthly billing has the advantage of bringing consistency to your income, and a lower price may be more effective for some fans (i.e., one who might balk at $60 per year may gladly pay $5 a month). On the other hand, monthly billing means paying credit card processing fees 12 times per year instead of once, and it may also may mean a higher cancellation rate as fans see the charge on their credit card statement each and every month. If you’re in doubt, we recommend asking your fans.
Bandcamp Support is experiencing an unusually high volume of emails from our wonderfully successful fundraisers this summer, so our responses may take an extra few days. We put together a list of common questions to help you help yourself in the meantime - power!
