Pre-Revenue Considerations

Server Subscriptions are now available to any community! Before you get started with establishing paid roles within your server, it’s important to feel comfortable, prepared and most importantly: excited!

Creating a Server Subscription is opening up a new opportunity for you to generate revenue, but gating certain aspects of your community isn’t right for everyone. If you’re looking for inspiration on what you can offer, check out one of our Creator Portal articles, aptly-named “Offering Inspiration.”

Once you’ve got an idea of what you'd like to offer to your paying subscribers, self-reflect and assess if you actually have the time during the average week in your life to support it. Don’t stress: it’s totally okay to start with a small offering and expand rather than going big from the get-go.

By setting realistic expectations with yourself, you’ll  better set expectations with your paying subscribers as well — it’s a win-win!

If you’re totally new to Discord and want to hit the ground running with earning money, be sure you have a solid foundation of what Discord actually is and how to set yourself up for success. We recommend this article right here to help you build your Discord knowledge.

One final note: Like most forms of revenue, earning money on Discord can impact your taxes. If your Server Subscriptions start rakin’ in the dough, it’s a good idea to speak with a tax professional on how this new source of income can affect your tax situation.

Now you’re prepped and all set to have a successful journey towards monetizing on Discord!  If you’re ready to get started with your Server Subscription offerings, check out the articles down below. Once you are good to go, you can get started in app by clicking here.
