Wattpad to add paid content

Online writing platform Wattpad has announced it is adding paid content to its website to make it ‘simpler for readers to financially support the writers they like’. ‘Where we introduce paid content, it will add new dimensions to existing free stories through bonus chapters, different points of view, or full stories that expand the original narrative,’ the company said on its blog, adding that ‘Wattpad was built free and will remain that way. The app will always be free, and there will always be a wealth of stories to read for free.’ The company has described the move as an ‘early experiment’.
