We are obsessed with our community.

Writers make Wattpad the place we all love. We’re focusing on our next chapter, a new program that allows readers to directly purchase stories from authors on Wattpad.

Wattpad readers have always been staunch supporters of writers, buying their books when they are published in order to reward writers and ensure they are able to continue sharing their stories. Our community has been asking for a way to support writers directly on Wattpad. Enter Wattpad Next.

We are currently running this beta program in Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, and the Philippines.

You may notice that one of your favorite stories is not available currently. Wattpad Next stories aren’t currently available to users outside of these countries. Through the beta program our team is focusing on creating a way for readers to directly support writers financially on Wattpad, and are focusing on 4 countries to ensure the program we release globally is the best fit for the Wattpad community.

In the meantime, we’re sure you’ll enjoy many of the 500 million stories on Wattpad, the majority of which will always be free.
