What's the difference between Gumroad, Skillshare and Patreon

Gumroad is a one-time purchase.

Skillshare is a subscription service where, if you're a premium member, you can get access to a huge variety of classes from other artists as well.

Patreon is a subscription service where you support the creator you like. My courses and past tutorials (from 2017) are available there.

If you want to support me directly, you can get the courses through Gumroad or Patreon. With Skillshare, the money goes into the subscription pool and I've to share with all other artists, but Skillshare is enticing for students because of the large number of classes available.

Regardless of where you get the courses, all downloads are provided. My courses on Gumroad and Patreon have slightly more content because there's a size limitation to the files I can upload on Skillshare.
