Earning money for your stories

When publishing content on Medium, you have the option of earning money whenever members (who subscribe for $5/month) interact with your story. Check out the Medium Partner Program FAQ for more details on how the program and payment works.

To make a story eligible to earn money:

  1. Join the Medium Partner Program and link your bank account.
  2. Start writing! Follow these instructions to write a new story, or editing an existing one.
  3. When you’re ready to go, make your story eligible to earn money, then hit publish. You’ll see a ★ next to stories you’ve chosen to make eligible.
  4. That’s it! You’ll automatically be paid every month based on reading time and applause from members, and you can track your progress every week in your Partner Dashboard.
