The Patreon API is a payment platform that supports creators with Patron-only content, Automation for rewards, Patron-only communities and more. It speaks to external services stating that there is a patron and what their pledge level is. Patreon's mission is to fund the creative class by building a product that powers membership businesses for creators.
Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Stocks, Shipping, Funding, and Music. Highlights include the Spatial Neighborhood API which delivers data about human behavior based on micro-locations, and the Patreon API for crowdfunding creative services.
