I’ve just created an account on Fantia which is a website, based in Japan, that allows creators to receive financial support from fans via subscriptions. So in other words, it’s a Patreon-like website
This is my fourth attempt at this sort of endeavour. I’ve tried Patreon, but they frown upon adult material. I’ve also tried Enty and pixiv’s Fanbox, which like Fantia are both based in Japan, but you need a Japanese bank account to receive payments. As for Fantia, it was a website that I’d been aware of for a while, but I hadn’t really looked into because I had the feeling it was in the same boat as Enty and Fanbox. And that appears to have been the case, at least until recently. That’s because today I found out that Fantia now allows you to receive payments through PayPal.
To be honest, I have no idea how things will go this time round. After all, this kind of thing is tricky and very unpredictable. But if you’re interested in following me on Fantia, you can do so by signing up to my free plan (which is called the “Normal Plan”). This plan will allow you to see the same sort of images that I’ve been posting on pixiv for years. There’s also a ¥400 “Bronze Plan”, which will let you access larger-sized images. Anyway, here’s the link:
I only have a single picture on my Fantia gallery at the moment, but I’ll be adding more in the coming days. I’ll also try and add another plan or two. That’s all for now. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
