WEBTOON CANVAS™ Has New Monetization Programs and More in Store for 2020! 12.17.2019





Hi creators! In July we announced we’d be phasing out our Beta Creator Credit Program at the end of this year. In place of the Beta Creator Credit, we’re excited to announce our WEBTOON CANVAS Creator Rewards Program, launching January 1st, 2020, that will be available to all qualifying creators. Keep reading for information on the program, qualifications, and how to participate! 


On top of implementing new monetization program(s) in 2020, WEBTOON CANVAS is also working hard to make all of our creators’ lives easier by providing more educational materials and resources, creating more monetization options, and implementing product updates to improve the publishing experience. We’ll be keeping everyone in the loop on any changes and updates via our notice board as well as with our creator newsletter, CANVAS Corner, which you can subscribe to HERE! 


Qualifications to receive WEBTOON CANVAS Creator Rewards 

· Credits will be rewarded to any creator whose series has been approved for the Ad Revenue Sharing Program. You must maintain the ad display on your series and keep your membership in the program. 

· Credits will be paid through Patreon, and you must register your valid Patreon ID on your WEBTOON account. If you do not register a valid Patreon ID, credits will disappear and do not roll over to any subsequent month. 

· If you have more than one series registered, credit will be provided to the top performing series in your account.  

· The series that qualifies for the Creator Rewards Program must update once or more in a month according to Korean Standard Time (KST).
