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:
- Join the Medium Partner Program and link your bank account.
- Start writing! Follow these instructions to write a new story, or editing an existing one.
- 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.
- 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.
