**Tipeee** is a French clone of Patreon with nearly identical policies, options, and issues. **Steady** is a German competitor to Patreon with a different set of features, not really a clone.
**GitHub Sponsors** is the new official GitHub patronage system (in beta as of mid-2019). It focuses on different set tiers with different levels of perks (which seem to be focused on just levels of public acknowledgement at this time). Initially invite-only. For the first year, GitHub is offering matching fund as well. They mention possible future fees but are starting without any fee. Initial focus is on individual developers, though they may later support team options.
**YouTube Memberships** is the official YouTube subscription support service. As of this writing, it's fixed at a monthly $4.99 (no tiers or options). Perks include access to non-public extra videos among other minor features.
**Drip** by Kickstarter is a direct competitor to Patreon. As of November 2017, the only distinguishing features are an initial period where patrons are badged "founders" and some potential integration with Kickstarter.

**Seed&Dew** plans a strange algorithmic model. Donors give the system $10/month, software projects get listed, somehow the time donors spend (on documentation?) per project is tracked, and the money (after the 30% cut) allocated proportionally to that.
**GitFund** from Espians (a FLO-focused idealistic organization) is simple monthly patronage with an emphasis on public marketing of sponsors. They emphasize institutional sponsorships while allowing individual patrons as well. Projects set a *limited number* of high-value sponsorship slots and boldly advertise their sponsors. In essence, this is just the most traditional form of advertising: static reference to generous sponsors put in prominent places in a project's public image. Although all-FLO in its own code, GitFund emphasizes integration with GitHub (which is a proprietary platform). Like Snowdrift.coop and Liberapay, GitFund aims to use its own mechanism for self-funding rather than take a cut from other projects.

**Rocket Fuel**: British music-focused site provides a small set of fixed subscription levels with strong emphasis on perks. One-time donations also included. Also provides an online store selling merchandise for artists. They present goals as "missions" that look like threshold campaigns but just represent funding milestones and have no deadline or threshold.
