The Paid Stories program is a way for writers to earn money for their work and for readers to support writers for creating stories they love. The Wattpad community has always supported writers by reading their work, sharing favourite stories, and cheering writers on through comments and votes. Readers can now support writers’ careers by paying to read their work. This gives writers the opportunity to spend more time creating great stories. Paid Stories are currently available in English, Filipino, French, Spanish, German, and Indonesian.
All Paid Stories have free preview chapters so you can decide if you want to spend coins on them. Please note that all Paid Stories are different lengths and some will require more coins to fully unlock. When you unlock stories with Coins you are directly supporting writers, so they can keep writing stories.
