Sell your stories on Novelo

What are paid stories? Paid stories is Novelo's answer to those who are looking to sell their work or provide support for their favourite authors. Put simply, Paid Stories allows authors to turn those days, weeks, months even years of hard work into physical income to allow them to continue to produce the awesome works we all know and love, as well as provide readers and fans the best way to support their favourite creators, while still receiving something in return. But don’t panic, free stories aren’t going anywhere!

How much can I earn? You decide the price for your Paid Story starting from $0.99. If the story is listed between $0.99 and $1.99, you will earn 35% from each sale. If the story is listed above $1.99, you will earn 80% from each sale.

Why use paid stories? Paid stories is the best method for supporting your favourite writers and creators. Stories take a long time to produce and contrary to what you might think, they’re not always cheap either. Paid stories is simply a way for authors to earn the profit they’ve worked for so they can supply our readers with more awesome content.

What are referrals? Referrals are registered members of Novelo whom you have referred to the site.

What are the benefits of referring people to Novelo? In addition to helping the platform grow, and thus increase your likeliness to sell Paid Stories, Novelo will be paying 5% of each Paid Story every time someone you referred purchases a Paid Story (Referral Fee). Your own Paid Story also counts, meaning you will receive 85% (40% if price of story is between $0.99 and $1.99) of the listing price of your Paid Story instead of 80% (35% if price of story is between $0.99 and $1.99) ! Due to issues with Cross Border Payments on our Payment Service Provider, we are only able to pay this Referral Fee to authors in specific countries. For more information about this, please go to the Payment Terms page.

How long do referrals last? You are entitled to receive Referral Fees from your referrals for 90 days from the date of registration on Novelo. After 90 days, you will no longer receive Referral Fees from this referral.

How do I refer someone? The easiest way is to use the Invite Friends feature found on the navigation bar. Simply click on your avatar and then click Invite Friends on the dropdown. Another way you can refer someone is by linking them to

When will I receive the Referral Fee? You will receive the Referral Fee 14 calendar days after your referral made the purchase. This is when the refund policy expires and is intended to protect Novelo against refunds made against purchases.

How will I receive the Referral Fee? In order to receive Referral Fees, you will need to sign up for a seller's account. If you do not have a seller's account, your Referral Fees will be held until you create one. After you've created a seller's account, Novelo will check hourly to see if you have any scheduled Referral Fees to be paid and transfer it to you.

How do I monitor the status of Referral Fees? You can monitor past and future Referral Fees on the Referrals page. You will also be able to find out who you have referred on this page.

I have a question or concern! Check out the FAQ at the bottom of the page or check out the Terms & Conditions for Referral Fees.
