Writing On Substack Is Totally On The House

  • 2 min read

Yep, you heard that right!

Are you wondering about Substack’s pricing?

Let me break it down for you — short and sweet.

As a writer on Substack, you have the power to decide if you want to make your newsletter 100% free or keep some exclusive goodies just for subscribers.

No matter how big or small your audience, Substack says that you can convert 10% of your free subscribers into paid ones.

On average, if you’re considering offering a premium newsletter, it’s usually around $5 a month and $50 per year.

On Medium members pay $5, get access to all writers and you only earn a small portion.

On Substack, readers can give a little extra love and support to you by becoming a paid subscriber.

Substack only takes 10% of subscription earnings.

That’s fair, right?

With Stripe handling the transactions, there’s an added 2.9% fee and a tiny 30-cent charge for each subscriber transaction.
