How does paid subscriptions work in the Substack app?

(For writers)

At this time, new readers can only become paid subscribers on the web.

However, they can easily subscribe as a free subscriber on the Substack app. Once they subscribe to your publication on the app, they’ll get an email confirmation with upgrade options and a link to your publication's subscription page that they can access from the web just like normal.

Learn more on how readers can view paid posts on the iOS app or Android app.

Note: As part of a pilot program, some readers may be able to pay for subscriptions to select publications directly within the Substack iOS app via Apple’s built-in payments system. If you have payments enabled on your publication and are interested in joining, please fill out this form here.
