How Much Does Instagram Pay For Reels?
Maddy Corbin, who has 49K followers on Instagram as of writing, was offered up to $1,000 for her reels in a month. She noticed, though, that other creators received different “I saw some people that had more followers than me and they could only make $600,” Corbin said via TechCrunch. Instagram offered $800 for creators with fewer followers.
“I wish I knew more on how that was generated. All I can think of is maybe it’s based off of past reels’ performance.”
Others received up to $8,000 offer, but they need to get 9.28M bonus plays. Instagram seems to have different criteria when qualifying what counts as views and what does not, which is understandable since they are paying for it. The platform also does not divulge how they calculate the offerings, although a representative told TechCrunch:
“We’re continuing to test payments as we roll out to more creators, and expect them to fluctuate while we’re still getting started,” Instagram said.
“We’ve designed bonuses so that we can help as many creators as we can in a way that is achievable and drives meaningful earnings. Our goal is for bonuses to become more personalized over time.”
Why Can’t I See Bonuses on Instagram?
1. Instagram did not send you an invite.
Unfortunately, Instagram only invited selected creators for the bonuses. The platform prioritized sending out the invitations to creators with less than 1 million followers over those earning money on Instagram in other ways such as brand partnerships or Badges in Live.
You should receive an invite within your Professional Dashboard if you are eligible. Once a Reels Play Bonus becomes available, do not forget to activate it before the eligibility expires.
