Who can read your stories

Medium is a platform supporting writers and the spread of their ideas. When you choose to earn money from a story, it’s important that your work be seen by a wide audience.

 When you make a story eligible to to earn money, everyone can read your work, including:

  1. All Medium members, as part of their $5/month membership plan.
  2. Anyone with access to a select number of free stories  every month.

That way, you’ll still be paid based on reading time and applause from members, and more people can get a taste of the smart thinking and quality writing you put out there.
