In-Story Ads FAQ

Hey Wattpadders,

Ads are part of the app experience and help keep Wattpad a free community. This is made possible by advertisements that help support authors and the costs of running the site, as well as improving your experience.

How do these ads help authors?

Some in-story ads help writers make money. Every time you view one, the majority of the revenue generated goes to the writer and helps them continue to create new content that inspires and entertains the Wattpad community.

Where will I see in-story ads?

In-story ads will appear in between chapters to ensure that they are as undisruptive as possible so you’ll still enjoy the same quality reading experience you love.

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

We’re currently only offering in-story ads to eligible writers, and you'll be contacted by our team if you're selected. At this time we are no longer accepting additional writers into the program.

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?
