When does the rewards program start and end?
The rewards program starts on September 1 and ends on September 30, giving you a full month to reach the goal.
How do I qualify for the rewards?
To qualify, you need to be part of the Inkitt subscription program and get readers to subscribe and/or renew. Earn up to $100 when you're among the first 100 authors to bring in 10 new subscription events, and up to another $100 if you're among the first 50 authors to reach 50 new subscribers.
How are the payouts calculated?
We will match what your 10 readers spend, with a cap of $10 per reader. And then again if you reach the goal of 50 readers.
Do the subscribers I bring in need to stay subscribed for a specific amount of time?
The reward will be issued to the first authors who reach the milestone (i.e. 10 subscribers and 50 subscribers), regardless of whether they maintain their users until the end of the cycle. Additionally, subscription renewals count towards the goal. This means that authors who already have more than 10 and more than 50 subscribers in August just need to make sure that their subscribers renew to reach the goal.
Can I participate if I already have subscribers?
Absolutely! If you already have subscribers, you can still qualify for the rewards by getting 10 or 50 subscribers to renew or to newly join your subscription before the end of the program.
When will I receive my reward?
Rewards will be distributed during the next pay cycle after the program ends, which is in October. You will need to sign up with our payment solution provider, Tipalti.

- Engage Your Audience: Interact with your existing readers and potential subscribers through blog posts, comments, and social media. Building a strong connection can lead to more loyal subscribers.
- Offer Exclusive Content: Provide your subscribers with special content they can't find anywhere else. This could include early access to chapters, behind-the-scenes insights, or bonus stories.
