To become a Creator on Waveful, at the moment, you need 5000 total post views. Once you have reached the 5000 views, just go to your account settings, go to the "Creator" page and follow the procedure.
Becoming a Creator on Waveful gives you the chance to start earning real money based on the engagement of your posts and based on the superlikes you receive. After you become Creator, you will unlock the Creator badge.
Monthly payments are made in this way: at the end of the month, we look at the ad revenue of the app, this revenue is divided in half, 50% pay for the servers and the expenses of the social, 50% is divided among all Creators based on the engagement they generated on their posts. The engagement is measured by taking all these statistics in consideration: views, view time, number of likes, number of comments, number of shares.
Superlikes also work in a similar way: we keep half of the revenue of the Superlike, the Creator that receives the Superlike keeps the other half.
To withdraw money from your Waveful account you will need to link an IBAN.
At the moment, IBAN is the only way to transfer money outside your Waveful account.
Don't worry, the money generated will remain on your Waveful account and will always be ready to be withdrawn when you want.
The money earned will remain on your Waveful balance and you can withdraw it whenever you want by linking an IBAN to your profile.
You can withdraw the money accrued on Waveful whenever you want, as long as you have reached at least €5.
Yes, you can link the same IBAN to multiple Waveful account.
You can start withdrawing your monthly earnings when you reach a minimum of €5.
The value of a Superlike for a Creator varies from month to month, as it is calculated by considering how much Waveful receives in total from all Superlikes bought in that month (post state taxes and post Apple/Google fees) and then sharing that value at 50% with the Creators. Therefore, the actual value can change based on users' shopping habits (depending on which package of Superlikes are bought in the month, whether larger or smaller packages). Let's take an example: You are buying 50 Superlikes for €19.99 on an Android device in a state where VAT is 22%. By making this purchase you are sending €19.99 to Google. Google pays VAT to your state, in this case €3.61 VAT. Google then retains 15% commission, in this case €2.46. The remainder of 19.99-3.61-2.46=€13.92 is sent to Waveful. Waveful then receives €13.92 from your purchase of 50 Superlikes. This value is shared 50/50 with Creators. So €6.96 is kept by Waveful to pay the costs of the platform, €6.96 is instead redistributed to Creators for Superlikes received. In this specific example, therefore, the value of a Superlike for a Creator is €6.96/50=€0.1392
Superlikes are more than a like. Superlikes are a way of showing someone that you like something they shared. For example, if your friend made a painting and posted it on Waveful, you could give them a Superlike to show them that you really appreciate their work, he will also receive a cash reward from your Superlike! You can purchase Superlikes in the store section of your account settings.
Profile Premium gives you access to special features and tools that help you show off your creativity and personality. You can purchase Premium in the store section of your profile settings, or get Premium for free by referring a friend to Waveful.
