Wattpad's new premium tier gets ads out of the way of your fanfic
Online storytelling community Wattpad published a blog post today saying that its first-ever premium subscription tier is finally available. This new tier will offer Wattpad's more than 60 million users an ad-free reading experience on both the Wattpad app (opens in new tab) and desktop site.
An ad-free option was, according to the site, one of the most frequent requests by current Wattpadders, and Wattpad's CEO Allen Lau made it clear that this new tier was for their comfort:
If you'd like to upgrade to Wattpad Premium, it'll cost you either $5.99 per month or an upfront yearly payment of $59.99 (which will save you about $12, or two months worth of fees). Here's how to subscribe on the app:
- Launch the Wattpad app and log in if you haven't already.
- Tap the button in the top right corner that says Go Premium.
- Select either the yearly or monthly Premium plan.
- Confirm your purchase.
That's it! Now all you have to do is select a story of your choice (Wattpad has everything from Tolstoy's Anna Karenina to self-help books to coming-of-age vampire dramas) and enjoy your ad-free reading sessions. You can also subscribe on Wattpad's desktop site if you prefer. If you don't already have the Wattpad app, you can get it here:
- Wattpad - Free - Download now (opens in new tab)
