Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I don’t use my quota of Paid Stories within my subscription period?

Unlocks expire at the end of your subscription period and are reset on the date your subscription renews. For example, with a monthly plan, if you have only unlocked 1 of the 2 Paid Stories in a month, your quota will reset to 2 Paid Stories next month, and not 3 Paid Stories. To make the most of your subscription, we recommend using all your unlocks. Once unlocked, your selected Paid Stories will be available in your Library to read at your own pace

Can I change my plan from Premium+ to Premium (downgrade)? 

To switch to a Premium subscription on your iOS device, visit your iTunes account via your device settings, cancel your current Premium+ subscription and then select either a monthly or annual subscription of Wattpad Premium from the subscriptions 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.

To switch to a Premium subscription on your Android device, open the Google Play store, sign in to your Google account, and tap the menu. Click on Subscriptions, select your Premium+ subscription, and tap cancel. Once canceled, you can choose the Premium subscription and return to the Wattpad app. You will continue to have access to your Premium+ subscription until your next billing date when you will begin your Premium subscription and pay the lower price of Premium.

When does my Paid Stories limit renew?
Your access to your Paid Stories unlocks renews on the same date your subscription renews. For example, if you subscribed to Premium+ on 15th April, you can access your next batch of Paid Stories on 15th May. You can check your renewal date from your App Store account or Google Play 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.
