Early Access Program

Our Early Access Program (EA) allows creators to place their latest episodes of a series behind a paywall for a limited period of time. Readers of the series can purchase the episodes to read ahead, or wait until the episodes become available for free. Creators on this program have either a large following on Tapas, or a very dedicated and supportive fanbase.

 

Unless otherwise agreed upon, creators on this program commit to updating their series regularly, and keeping episodes exclusive to Tapas while behind the paywall. Exceptions to the exclusivity may be made for other supporting platforms such as Patreon.

 

Application Process*

At this point, EA accepts applications from creators with a large Tapas following. Creators with smaller accounts are added by invite only. Scrolling format series are preferred, and we love submissions of series available in both English and Spanish. EA accepts both comics and novels.
 

To apply, you must:

1. Follow our Content and Community guidelines

2. Have a minimum of 10k subscribers on your series on Tapas

3. Update your series regularly (at least twice per month)

4. Have a buffer of at least 3 not yet published episodes
