All about being a creator
To summarize: A creator is someone who creates a membership page on Subclub to engage with subscribers who have purchased memberships from Subclub to support the creator’s creations. There are a lot of details below involving payments, fees, taxes and restrictions that you should read in full if you are a creator.
As a creator you only pay the BSC blockchain network commission. The BSC network runs a Proof of Staked Authority consensus mechanism. Users of the network need to stake BNB to become a validator, and upon the successful validation of a block, they receive the transaction fees included.The transaction fees are denoted in Gwei, which is a small denomination of BNB equal to 0.000000001. Users can set their gas prices to prioritize their transactions added to the block. To find out the current and historical average price of gas, BscScan provides a daily average along with the lowest and highest price paid. The BSC fees are usually very low, but if you try to send tokens without BNB in your account, the network will notify you that you have insufficient funds. Make sure you keep some extra BNB in your wallet to pay for your transaction fees.
All about being a subscriber
To summarize: A subscriber is someone who purchases memberships from Subclub to support their favorite creators’ creations. Through a paid membership on Subclub, subscribers directly interact with creators they support, using tools supplied by Subclub, and through our platform have the opportunity to engage with a greater community of subscribers and creators. As a subscriber, you’re joining Subclub to be part of an exciting movement to support a creator’s membership while you get special benefits, which may include access to your creator, merchandise (when offered), exclusivity, and engaging experiences with the creator and subscriber community. In exchange, you pay Subclub for membership programs, on a subscription basis, to access and support creators you like. The Subclub commission is 10% of the subscription price, not counting the fees of the blockchain network. The timing and amount of each membership subscription depends on the type of membership agreement you enter into, and the creator you support. You can see the details as you join, as well as in the receipt sent to you after each successful payment. You can view all your active membership subscriptions and billing history on your membership page. To become a subscriber, simply create an account, add your web3 wallet, and join a membership program on Subclub to start supporting your creator! Subscription payment is made once a month on the day of subscription creation. You may cancel your membership payments at any time. Terminating or lowering the tier support of membership will go into effect in the subsequent (not current) payment term. For monthly or per creation payments, canceling your support may result in your loss of access to a creator’s subscriber-only posts and benefits. These include when you cancel your membership subscription, your payment method fails, the creator blocks you, or the creator deletes their account. We are not required to allow you to be a subscriber of any particular creator. Creators’ memberships vary and we have limited control over the quality and specific offerings. We attempt to screen for fraudulent creator pages, but cannot guarantee the identity of creators or the validity of any claims they make. We appreciate your help reporting suspicious creator pages so we can keep Subclub safe.
To summarize: You can delete your account. We can disable your account at our discretion. We can terminate or suspend your account at any time at our discretion. We can also cancel any membership subscriptions and remove any descriptions, posts or benefits at our discretion.

If you try to bring such a claim, you are responsible for the damages caused, including attorneys fees and costs. These terms remain in effect even if you no longer have an account.
