Purchasing Coins and unlocking stories

Coin Shop

You can open your wallet by going to your profile and clicking on the Coin button  

In order to purchase Coins, you will need to have an App Store or Google Play account on a mobile device with an active SIM card. This helps us determine what location you are attempting to purchase from so we can serve you the correct pricing. Also, you will need a recent version of the Operating System running on your device. For the Android app, this is Android 7.0 or higher, and for iOS, this is iOS 13 or higher.

Be aware that users in some locations may not download in-app content or apps, and attempts to make in-app purchases will fail. To find out more about store distribution, check out the articles below according to your device:

Coin pack purchases are not yet available on the Web version of Wattpad but once you have purchased Coins on the app, you can use them to unlock stories on the web. 

You can also access the coin shop when you reach a paywall on a Wattpad Original. The coin shop will display all available coin packages and their prices.

If you are a Wattpad Premium member you will get Bonus Coins with every purchase you make, you can learn more about Wattpad Premium here. If you are a Premium+ member make sure you use your unlocks before your subscription renews as these do not carry over. 

You can read the stories you've unlocked as many times as you like. When you unlock stories with Coins you are directly supporting writers, so they can keep writing stories you love.
