Update on WEBTOON's Ad Revenue Sharing Program (Updated) 08.26.2018

* Updated on 27th, August




Hey again, Discover Creators!


We started rolling out the beta version of the Ad Revenue Sharing Program on August 1st. There’s been a large number of Creators who have already applied, and the approval process is underway.


In order to create a sustainable model, we need to continuously test, calibrate, update, and tweak until we find the ad products that provide the best experience. To find this perfect balance, we’re inviting Discover Creators to participate in our beta program.


You may notice changes in how ads appear during the beta period. That’s because we are working to identify the best user experience while maximizing Creators’ profit by testing types of ads, location, and frequency. 


Creators who join our beta will be entitled to a 50% share of the net profit as laid out in the Ad Revenue Sharing Program Terms of Service. Creators will also be rewarded with performance-based credits for being early adopters of this monetization program! 


We will continue to develop new monetization methods that will benefit a variety of webtoons, regardless of genre, format, or style.
