How to Support Mickey Views
Many of our viewers ask how they can support the creation of our content and ensure it keeps coming for years to come. Below are some great options to support Mickey Views!
The Best Ways
Patreon is a fan-funding platform which allows fans to fund their favorite creators by creating an account and selecting a monthly pledge amount. The payments function like most other recurring online payments. You are charged monthly on the day of the month you signed up and can cancel at any time. Difference here is, you get to decide how much or little you’d like to spend per month! We currently offer tiers of $2, $5, and $15 which offer different perks, but you can contribute less or more than that. Some of our viewers send $1 a month! Other generous viewers give $50 while enjoying the benefits of our $15 top tier. Find out more at patreon.com/mickeyviews.
PayPal is an online payment provider used by millions of small businesses to run credit card and bank transactions. At paypal.me/MickeyViews, you can send us any sum as a one-time contribution along with an optional message! We especially recommend this option for those who prefer making large one-time contributions, as PayPal takes a far lower fee (3.49% + fixed fee) than Patreon (8%) and YouTube superchats (30%).
An Option with No Additional Cost to You
Do you ever shop on Amazon? Lots of people do! If you begin your Amazon shopping journey by clicking on the graphic above (or here), a small portion of your final purchase total will be sent to Mickey Views as Amazon affiliate revenue. This doesn’t cost you anything extra, the affiliate revenue comes out of Amazon’s end which you otherwise give to them instead of us! This option is especially good for folks who aren’t in a position to give us direct monetary support.
REMEMBER: For this to work, every time you shop through Amazon, you must go through our link. The link brings you to Amazon’s homepage like normal but contains a referral ID in the URL letting them know Mickey Views sent you! Consider bookmarking the link in your browser if you use Amazon via desktop. For mobile, just tap on the graphic or tap here each time you shop!
Less Common Means of Support
We don’t want any random Disney merchandise, we already have too much! There are some specific, old Disney-related items we are on the hunt for. Please see what we’re looking for here.
YouTube superchats are a feature where during a livestream you can donate a sum with a message and get featured in the live chat. Brayden responds to superchats throughout his streams. The benefit to this method is instant and live interaction with Brayden. The downside, besides the rarity of Mickey Views livestreams, is that YouTube takes a massive 30% cut of all superchats! Contributions are also taxed of course, so it’s like paying income tax twice! When a viewer sends a $100 super chat, less than half that amount ultimately reaches Mickey Views. That’s why even during streams Brayden suggests larger donations be sent through paypal.me/MickeyViews, which he checks throughout the stream. To be notified the next time Brayden goes live, make sure that you are subscribed with notifications on over at youtube.com/@MickeyViews. Ensure that your notifications are set to “All” for the channel (select the bell icon to check) and also check that YouTube push notifications are enabled in your device settings.
