FAQ: Payments

How do I get paid?

As a Playbook creator, you get paid specifically from the monthly and annual subscriptions you bring in through your unique sales link. You get paid in increments over the course of each user’s subscription (i.e. you get paid $8.25/month on a $99 annual subscription). To get the full breakdown on payments, click here.

When do I get paid?

You receive payments by the 16th of every month for the previous month. For example, when you receive a payment around May 16, that’s your revenue from the entire month of April. You can track your current and projected earnings in the “Analytics” tab on the creator app. To get the full breakdown on payments, click here.

Why do my initial payments look lower than expected?

During the first few months while new users are on the $1 trial, payments will look a bit lower than you might expect. Once those trial users start converting to paid subscriptions, payments will increase accordingly. To get the full breakdown on payments, click here.

How much money does Playbook make?

Playbook collects 20% of the earnings you bring in. Also, Apple and Google take 2% to 3% per download if the app is downloaded through them (instead of your sales link). So you’re walking away every month with 77% to 78% of the profits from your subscriptions. There are no hidden fees — that chunk of change is all yours.

How do referrals work?

After building up your app, the next step to expanding your monthly income is via our referral program. We offer this to select creators. You can vouch for Playbook and connect us with other creators you think would be a good fit for the platform. We do the rest and pay you a sizable referral fee over the next four years! You can refer as many creators as you want — which could mean thousands of extra dollars per month. Referrals are a great way to accelerate your digital earnings!
