Open Subscription Platforms

May 12, 2021

You can’t just take your followers and leave Facebook, don’t you? A similar issue now emerges with so-called subscription platforms. That is why Open Subscription Platforms project divides them in two categories, based on their business model:

  1. 👍 Open platforms give creators full ownership of payments and customer data: Substack, Revue, Ghost, Podia, WooCommerce, Memberful, etc.
  2. 👎 Closed platforms keep creators locked in: Medium, Patreon, Twitch, Convertkit, Gumroad

Share or discuss: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn
