In-Story Ads

Hey Wattpadders,

Wattpad is a free platform available to millions of people around the world. Advertisements help us keep it that way, ensuring readers can find amazing stories and writers can build communities of fans. Like other free services, including YouTube and Spotify, these advertisements help with the cost of running Wattpad.


Where will I see in-story ads?

In-story ads will appear in between chapters to ensure they don’t disrupt the quality of your reading experience.

I'd prefer not to see ads. Is this possible?

Absolutely! Wattpad Premium is our ad-free subscription tier available to all users who want more control over their Wattpad experience. Learn more at

I’ve written a great story. Can I start making money from in-story ads?

There is currently no opportunity to make money from ads on your stories.

Wattpad is a free platform where anyone can build a global audience. Ads appear on Wattpad stories to ensure stories are free and accessible to everyone.

Experiencing Any Issues?

If you still cannot view the story part or the story itself due to issues with an ad not playing or displaying, please contact us by submitting a ticket through support with the following info:

  • Where were you in the app when this happened?

  • Can you briefly describe the advertisement? (Company, product name, etc).

  • Are you using Wi-Fi or cellular data?
