How to Connect Patreon to Discord
If you are a “patron” of a certain level, the platform will offer you a role in Discord. Just below, you can choose “Connect to Discord” if you have it, click on it. It would be best if you went to the creators’ Patreon page. On the right side of the page is an option to secure your rewards in Discord.
You can create an account if you do not have an account on the platform. Soon after, you will be redirected to Discord, so you must log in with your details. After following this step, Patreon and Discord will be connected. In this step, you should go to the creator’s page, and then the option “Connect to Discord” should be changed to “View on Discord.” And then, you will open a browser tab for Discord, and then you can log in and view the server.
Finally, your Patreon and Discord accounts must be linked, and you will be assigned the role intended for your level. You can access your new position when you log into your Discord account.
What About When You Can’t See the Content Creator in Discord?
It could be that you patronize a creator that offers bonuses in Discord, and you need help finding it in the software. This is because Discord features are not assigned to users with personalized rewards, regardless of how much they pay. So to gain access to the creator’s Discord server, you must select one of the tiers provided by your creator.
What if the message “Something went wrong” appears when connecting Patreon to Discord? This is a frequent error that many individuals have reported when connecting two platforms. The error usually appears when the person logs into Discord with the message, “Something went wrong.
You should log out of your Discord and all devices it is logged into, including computer and smartphone. Then connect your Patreon to Discord. Then a message will appear asking you to log into your Discord. If the error no longer occurs this way, you should be directed to Patreon. However, if the error persists, wait about 15-20 minutes before clicking the “Try again” option. This will solve your problem, and the accounts will be connected.
