We’re very excited to announce Reward Ads, a new monetization option for Gold and Platinum tier creators under our Ad Revenue Sharing Program!
CANVAS creators with 600K+ US monthly page views will now have the option to apply for Reward Ads, which will allow them to lock up to three episodes behind video ads at a time. Video ads will be up to 30-seconds long. With Reward Ads, creators will earn additional revenue each month, and their readers will now have a way to support their favorite series!
Creators may have already noticed the Reward Ads addition to the AD SHARING tab on the creator dashboard. If eligible, there will be a green button underneath ‘Reward Ads’ that says ‘Apply.’ All applicants will receive an e-mail letting them know if they’ve been approved for Reward Ads or not.
Once your series is approved, creators will now be able to schedule all upcoming episodes! Any episode with Reward Ads will go through up to a 72-hour approval process before being published, so please make sure to schedule any Reward Ad episodes 72-hours in advance of your publishing time. Once an episode is approved, it will be published at the scheduled time. If approved early, you can reschedule episodes to be published earlier.
For a visual walkthrough of the application and scheduling process, check out our newest episode of CANVAS Corner! CLICK HERE!
In order for readers to see the episodes behind video ads, they’ll need to install the WEBTOON app. By installing the WEBTOON app, readers are also able to subscribe to a series after reading three episodes in a row - AND they can get notified when a series updates!
Due to the ongoing situation with the pandemic, we will continue giving creators 100% of revenue earned from both Viewer Ads and Reward Ads through the end of 2020.
The episode scheduler will be rolled out to ALL CANVAS creators in early 2021 - stay tuned!
Thank you so much for being part of CANVAS!
