To be eligible for the Audible Escape Bonus, you must be in compliance with all applicable ACX terms, conditions and policies, including but not limited to our Content Guidelines.
Most creators will receive their final royalty payment in February, 2021, covering Q4 2020 listening. As customers can listen to content offline for up to 90 days, royalties will continue to be paid for all Escape listening through Q1 2021 to capture any offline listening after the November 1st closure. If offline listening has occurred for your titles, you will receive a final royalty payment in May, 2021.

Will an Audible Escape subscriber be able to listen to my audiobook after the subscription ends on November 1, 2020?
