Every time an Episode player uses a gem in your story, you will earn a gem read for that chapter and a gem used. Gems used by both iOS and Android players count toward your overall total of gems and reads.
Your dashboard will show you total gems used by month and by story (for published, eligible stories only).
We reconcile all reads and gems used once per month. Prior to our reconciliation, your counts will be marked as “Estimates” or “Pending Review” and are subject to change. Once we have reviewed all reads and gems used for the month, we will mark them as “Verified.” It is normal to see variation between “Estimates,” “Pending Review,” and Verified gem reads and gems used.
We plan to finalize the number of reads and gems used for all writers and mark them as ‘Verified’ within 30 days from the end of each month.
e.g. Reads and gems used from the month of September 2020, will be finalized and marked as ‘Verified’ on or before October 30th, 2020.
For the current month, total reads and gems used will increase as each day’s data are calculated and updated. Please note that the data is not able to update in real time and that any data reported as “Estimates” are subject to change.
