Q: What are advanced chapters?
A: Advanced chapters are basically early access system. I’m providing advanced chapter access (mostly out of my reserved chapters) via ko-fi membership and google docs. Members who subscribe can access the chapters ahead of readers of the blog. For example, let’s say you subscribe to tier X which are two advanced chapters. This guarantee that you are always two chapters ahead of public (aka blog readers).
Q: How to access advanced chapters?
- Register to a ko-fi account and gmail account if you don’t have it
- Go to my ko-fi page https://ko-fi.com/koffeam and click Membership
- Choose a tier you want to subscribe
- If the email you use to register ko-fi account is not a gmail one, make sure you provide a gmail address in the comment, so I can grant you access to the google drive folder
- I’ll grant the permissions and access to the gmail accounts to view the files and rewards. Please wait for it as I’m doing it manually and trying my fastest.
- Accept the invitation and open the drive folder. You will be notified through email.
- Enjoy the chapters 😉 (note that all files are read-only, so you cannot edit, download, or copy)
Q: How is it different with sponsored chapters?
A: Sponsored chapters are extra releases I made publicly available in this blog as thanks to ko-fi one-time donations made by readers. However, advanced chapters is a feature exclusive only to the members of monthly subscriptions.
Q: Why do you use ko-fi instead of patreon, and why do you use google drive?
A: Many reasons, but mainly because ko-fi is simpler than patreon, and using ko-fi for payment and google drive for rewards is easier than using ko-fi alone. Using google drive is also neater than ko-fi or patreon posts.
Q: When will you update the chapters in google drive?
A: Every weekend, either Saturday or Sunday. I will announce the update via ko-fi post.
Q: What is ‘This week’s public chapters’?
A: Because I update advanced chapters once a week, I also include all the chapters I am going to release in the blog for the following week. For example, Let’s say the next week’s schedule for the blog is Novel ABCD chapter 11 part 1 (Monday) and chapter 11 part 2 (Wednesday). As a member of tier x, you are entitled to two chapters ahead, so on Sunday, you will get four updated chapters, which are ch 11.1 and 11.2 in ‘This week’s public chapters’ and then ch 12.1 and 12.2 as your advance chapters.
Q: Will you eventually release advanced chapters for free?
A: Of course! After a while, all advanced chapters that originally are membership-only will be released for the public in this blog. Not a single chapter is permanently locked.
Q: Do advanced chapters’ proceeds also be counted towards sponsored chapters?
A: Unfortunately no. If you are a member and also want to donate towards a sponsored chapter, please make a separate donation via ko-fi’s one-time donation.
Q: I subscribe to a tier. Can I ask for a refund?
A: Unfortunately, due to the nature of advanced chapters, I don’t offer refunds. You can, however, cancel or change your membership tier anytime. See this page for more information.
Q: How to cancel a tier?
A: Go to this page and follow the instruction to cancel the membership. Please take note that due to the nature of advanced chapters, I don’t offer refund, but you can still enjoy your tier’s advanced chapters until the end of your last billing cycle.
Q: I subscribe to tier A but now I want to upgrade to tier B. How to do it?
1. Go to my ko-fi page and subscribe to tier B.
2. You will have to pay the full amount of tier B, but your tier A’s subscription will be automatically canceled at the end of its billing cycle.
3. Contact me via email or ko-fi message to ask for a manual refund.
4. I will issue a partial refund based on the remaining days of your tier A’s subscription.
For more information, check out this page.
Let’s say you subscribed to tier A ($10) on July 1st. On July 15th, you upgraded to tier B ($20). I will issue a partial refund for tier A ($5) to you.
Q: I subscribe to tier B but now I want to downgrade to tier A. How to do it?
1. Go to my ko-fi page and subscribe to tier A.
2. You will have to pay the full amount of tier A, but your tier B subscription will be automatically canceled at the end of its billing cycle.
3. Contact me via email or ko-fi message to ask for a manual refund.
4. Due to the nature of advanced chapters, downgrading is almost similar to cancelation, so I base my refund on the cheaper tier.
Let’s say you subscribed to tier B ($20) on August 10th. On August 25th, you downgrade to tier A ($10). I will issue a partial refund (the remaining billing cycle of tier B multiply with the price of tier A, which is 0.5 x $10 = $5) to you.
Q: Why such complicated rules?
A: To prevent abuse.
Without rules of no-refund, anyone can subscribe to a tier, read all chapters there, and then canceling their subscription.
Without rules of downgrading, anyone can subscribe to a more expensive tier, read all the chapters there, and then downgrade to the cheaper tier after asking for a refund, essentially reading more chapters than they actually paid for.
Q: I don’t have money to donate or subscribe. How can I support you?
A: Don’t worry! All my translations are open to the public for free, and both sponsored chapters and advanced chapters are just additional perks. You are already supporting me by reading at aerialrain.com instead of wattpad or some random copiers. Thank you for your support!
Q: Your FAQ doesn’t answer my questions!
A: You can leave comments here or contact me via ko-fi private message.
