Getting started with integrations
Here are some ways creators are extending membership across the web:
Generate income via your WordPress site
If your website is hosted on WordPress, you can turn fans into patrons without ever leaving it.
When a patron pledges, they can then head over to www.yourwordpresssite.com and click your “Connect with Patreon” button to let the site know they are a patron. When you create content on WordPress you will be given the option to limit it to only paying patrons.

Create automations between Patreon and your fave apps with Zapier
Zapier is a super simple way to connect your Patreon page with apps you use every day, automating your workflows and reducing time-sucking administrative tasks. You can make your own automations by connecting Patreon with Zapier’s 750+ apps, such as MailChimp, Google Sheets, Twitter, Crowdcast, and more.

Give patrons special access on Discourse
Discourse is an incredibly customizable community forum, where you can give your patron base (or entire community) varying levels of access to private groups. With this integration, you can seamlessly add new patrons to special subsets of the forum without having to do any manual work.

Offer patron-only chat rooms and features on Discord
Discord is a free voice and text chat app for gamers that works on both your desktop and phone. The Discord-Patreon integration launched in 2016 and is now used by thousands of Patreon creators. This integration automatically inputs new patrons’ emails into Discord so that you don’t have to spend any time adding patrons yourself.
