  2. At the top of the editor, choose: Your Audience > Medium members.
  3. If you have not already done so, click Join now. You will be prompted to agree to the Partner Program terms, and enter your payment details as an individual or business. You must link a bank account before you can lock stories.
  4. When you are finished writing or editing your post, publish it as you normally would. 
  5. Your post will be automatically included as member content.
