How it works
PressPatron allows supporters to make contributions to their favourite journalism websites in a few simple steps.
When visiting a publisher's website, PressPatron appears as a button that allows people to become a supporter.
When clicked, a pop-up appears which prompts supporters to select an amount and enter their payment details.
The images below demonstrate what a PressPatron campaign looks like, using the Newsroom.co.nz website as an example.
