A: Patrons are charged on the 1st of each month for their pledges from the previous month (If you pledge on September 10, you will be charge on October 1 and will receive September's rewards). It usually takes a full 72 hours for all payments to process, so you may not see a charge go through for a few days from the start of the month.  You’ll receive an email that will indicate whether your payment was successfully processed or declined.
