Frequently Asked Questions

If I don’t unlock 2 Paid Stories in a month, can I unlock the remaining Paid Stories in the next month?

No. You can only unlock 2 Paid Stories with your Premium+ subscription each month. Unused Premium+ quota does not carry over month to month. The quota is reset to 2 stories on the date your subscription renews. To make the most of your subscription, we recommend unlocking 2 Paid Stories of your choice each month, as once unlocked, you can keep them in your Library to read at your own pace.

Can I change my current subscription from Premium+ to Premium (downgrade)? Only available on iOS

To downgrade from a Premium+ subscription:

  1. Open the Settings app propercog.png
  2. Tap your name at the top 
  3. Tap Subscriptions. (If you don't see "Subscriptions," tap "iTunes & App Store" instead. Then tap your Apple ID, tap View Apple ID, sign in, scroll down to Subscriptions, and tap Subscriptions.)
  4. Cancel your current Premium+ subscription and then select either a monthly or annual subscription of Wattpad Premium from the subscription options available on the list. You will be asked to confirm your transaction and can then return to Wattpad. The next time your subscription renews, you will pay the lower price of Wattpad Premium.

When does my Paid Stories limit renew?
Your access to 2 Paid Stories per month renews on the same date your subscription renews. For example, if you subscribed to Premium+ on 15th April, you can access 2 more Paid Stories on 15th May. You can check your renewal date from your App Store / iTunes account.

How does my subscription support writers?
When you unlock a Paid Story with Premium+, we give a portion of your subscription payment to the writer as per our contractual agreements.

Can I still use Coins to unlock Paid Stories?
Yes, you can still unlock Paid Stories with Coins.

Do I still get bonus Coins with my Premium+ subscription?
Yes, Premium+ subscribers get up to 66% more Coins whenever they purchase a Coin pack on Wattpad. 

I already have Coins in my wallet. Will they get confiscated if I subscribe to Premium+?
No, any coins in your wallet will remain yours to spend on any other Paid Stories of your choosing. You can always choose whether you wish to unlock a Paid Story with Coins or with your Premium+ subscription.

Can I unlock both completed and ongoing stories?
Yes, you can unlock both completed and ongoing Paid Stories with your Premium+ subscription. The story you have to chosen to unlock will also be made available for offline reading. In the case of ongoing stories that you have unlocked with your subscription, you will have access to each new published part until the story is complete, at no additional cost. 

Is it possible for me to lose access to a Paid Story I have unlocked?
You can keep all the Paid Stories you have unlocked to read and re-read as you wish, as long as they remain a part of the Paid Stories program. Your access to the story may be revoked if the story is removed from the Paid Stories program at the discretion of the writer and/or Wattpad.

I did not like the Paid Story I unlocked with my subscription. Can I swap it with another story?
No. It is not possible to swap one unlocked story with another. All Paid Stories come with a free preview comprising a few chapters to allow readers to decide whether the story is for them before they commit to unlocking it with their Premium+ subscription or Coins.
