Patreon payments - high risk?

Just to share my experience with Patreon and Curve:

I have monthly USD10 outgoing on Patreon, and as don’t have any USD cards, paying this on Curve would save me the FX fees however I pay this (via PayPal or credit card).

To quote an email I received from Team Curve on this: “…transactions to the merchant PAYPAL*PATREON INC blah blah we declined because direct marketing purchases are blocked via Curve as these are considered high-risk.”

I’m not complaining, tho it would have been good to know this in advance.
