What is Ko-fi Gold?

You no longer need to subscribe to Ko-fi Gold to unlock all of Ko-fi's features.

You can now offer Membership Tiers, sell products in your Ko-fi Shop and take Commissions with just a 5% platform fee and no monthly subscription fee.


Consider becoming a Contributor to share 5% of your donation income with us to help us run the service and unlock these cool perks:

  1. Change the "coffee" metaphor to... anything you like
  2. Claim a shorter Ko-fi username (3 letters and up)
  3. Choose a custom color for your page
  4. Get insights about your page with Google Analytics
  5. Support our team to help us build a better Ko-fi!


If you’re a Contributor and then subscribe to Gold, you’ll need to turn off ‘contributor’ status to stop paying the 5% platform fee. Memberships which began before you subscribed to Gold will continue to incur the 5% platform fee.
