It may be something I might try at some stage and was just wondered if anyone here is making money on either Wattpad or Radish. If so, I would be interested in any experiences you are prepared to share.
They pay quarterly. A reader pay 3 coins per chapter to read. Each coin is about 2.5 cents to the author. However, because Radish also gives coins away, you don't get paid on "free" coins. Realistically, you receive anywhere from 4-7.5 cents per chapter.Thanks - could you explain a bit about how their payment system works?
Hi Mo, thanks for the info.They pay quarterly. A reader pay 3 coins per chapter to read. Each coin is about 2.5 cents to the author. However, because Radish also gives coins away, you don't get paid on "free" coins. Realistically, you receive anywhere from 4-7.5 cents per chapter.
Your books can also be nonexclusive as long as your book aren't offered free anywhere else.
I don't believe they have a hard episode limit. Radish recommends 1,500 words, but I've often done episodes that up are to 5K words. Normally, I stick between 1,500-2,500 words. Sometimes longer, sometimes a bit shorter.Hi Mo, thanks for the info.
I'd never heard of Radish until they introduced Vella and kept seeing the name on here. When they announced Vella, I started writing a serial story for when they rolled it out to European authors. I have around 45k words so far. The only thing I had to go on for episode length with Vella was their 600 - 5000 word limits. Anyway, I thought I'd go for somewhere in the middle at an average of 2,500 words per episode for a dystopian thriller instead of my usual chapter length at an average of 1500 words.
Now when I look at the possibility of applying to Radish instead of Vella, I see they say that the sweet spot is 1500 words which makes me think they would reject me for episode length?.
If you don't mind me asking you as someone with experience, what do your episodes average in terms of word count?
I write in contemporary romance. Nothing smutty. If you don't write romance, they are branching out into many other genres.Hey Moe, what genre do you write in? And did you have a following before you tried Radish? If no, how long did you write on Radish before you started to see a a good cash flow?
