Why should I trust Coil?
Coil provides better ways to access and reward the creators, publishers and platforms that create the content you love. All without relying on advertising, site-by-site subscriptions or tracking your every move. You can check out other Coil supported sites here: https://coil.com/discover
Do I have to pay to monetize my content?
One of the great things about Coil is that you don't need to! You just need to set up an e-wallet in uphold. You can download this app in your phone to sign up since this only works in mobile.
We recommend using uphold because we have tested it.
How do I sign up?
Follow these easy steps to sign up as a Coil creator:
- Head over to https://coil.com/creator for sign up.
- Create a free account with your e-mail address. You will be sent a verification code which will redirect you to a membership form. You don't need to fill up this form because this is only for members who want to subscribe to content.
- Go back to https://coil.com/creator after verifying your email to set up your profile picture and account name.
- You will need to choose which wallet you want to receive your payment. Your wallet provider will assign you a payment pointer, which is the public address for your wallet.
- Copy the payment pointer given by your wallet into the field. To set up your wallet, you can view our tutorial here: https://youtu.be/cf8vQXizNHU
- After finishing this step, copy your payment pointer to your profile in Fliptoons.
- That's it!
You can choose which comic under your name would be monetized after providing your payment pointer.
How do I earn?
You can earn based on the time consumed by the coil subscriber on your content, instead of basing it on clicks. You can be sent in USD through your uphold account. You can cash-out this by either connecting your account to your bank or converting your earnings to coins supported by uphold and transferring to a coins.ph wallet.
Can I monetize my submissions in WMCC?
You can monetize them and the only people who can read them are readers who subscribed to Coil. You can choose not to monetize specific comics when setting up your payment pointer in your Fliptoons profile.
