What does “Support the author“ mean? *ANSWERED*

As the title already says, I‘m wondering what it means. Most stories have it at every chapters end and i‘ve never understood what the effect of it was.
What does happen when I press support? Does anything happen anyway?

haha i‘d really appreciate answers to that since ive been on episode for a very long time and never got behind it :woozy_face:

It usually is a gem choice, so that they can access sooner the payments

You don’t see it (like the majority of the readers) but the system counts it as a gem choice anyway

Oh, thanks for your quick answer!:smiling_face_with_three_hearts: That totally makes sense. So basically it doesn’t make a difference for the reader which they choose but just for the writer?

If you don’t see gem choices in community stories, then no!
