Patreon, a site that lets fans fund creators such as YouTube publishers has silently introduced payment processing fees that affect all new pledges. For example, a patron that pledges $1 will have to pay $1.35.

Sounds to me like cash cow donors are welcomed. What are they afraid of just tell them their donation comes with a processing fee and be up front about it and most donors will understand it. Doing it under the table is one sure fire way to loose donors and worse get yourself in the Online news where what goes Online will stay online forever.
