Boosty Guide for clients

Boosty.to is a Patreon-like service which was made for creators with Russian-speaking audiences. It was around for quite a long time and it was pretty popular among Russian youtubers, cosplayers, streamers, etc.

Now it is the most easy and reliable way for all Russian creators to get paid, because Boosty still accepts PayPal and bank card payments from abroad. It basically serves as a mediator since PayPal is not available in Russia.

Boosty still struggles with increased traffic and transfers, so lags and other issues may occur. Please let me know if you have any problems!

Registration

  • Switch to English language in top right corner.

  • Click 'Sign Up' or 'Log In' in top left.

  • Register or sign in using social media account (you can choose Google, YouTube, or Twitch).

 

Payment

  • Go to my Boosty page

  • Click 'Donate' button under the 'Goals' bar.

  • Enter the payment amount in ₽ (RUB, Russian roubles). I will count it for you beforehand according to the actual exchange rate. Payments bigger than 10 000 RUB should be split into smaller parts (that will significantly reduce the risk of errors).

  • Click 'Donate' and choose the payment method.
    The most reported issue is never-ending loading on this page (it won't redirect you to PayPal or let you enter the bank card info). Switching to incognito tab, or changing the browser or device helps in most cases!

  • Confirm the payment and you are done! :]
