If you have stories for members, you can check your payment estimates at any time in your Partner Program dashboard.
Viewing your dashboard
- Click on your avatar image in the top-right corner of the page.
- Click Medium Partner Program from the menu.
Note: The Partner Program dashboard can't be accessed on mobile apps.
The Payment summary view shows you payment estimates for all your eligible stories for the current period. Payment estimates are posted in your dashboard every Wednesday, based on the engagement generated in the previous week (Monday to Sunday.) You can click on the current payout period to access the list of all the latest periods, as well as information on how much you earned for each story in that period.
For each story, you can see how much it earned in each week. The timeline above Payment summary shows when each week starts and ends. The "In progress" label on eligible stories shows you which week you are currently in, and the estimate for that week will show up after the next dashboard update. If you see a dash (—), this means that the story wasn't in the Program during that week, or that the week hasn't started yet. Clicking "Show details" lets you see lifetime payments for this story.
Your earnings are deposited into your bank account on the last Wednesday of every calendar month. During each payout, your revenue is sent to your Stripe account, and you receive a notification from Medium letting you know how much you earned. From there, it takes a few business days for Stripe to process your payout and send it to the bank account or debit card associated with your Stripe account. This is done automatically.
Stories show up on the Partner Program dashboard immediately after they are set as members only. However, in the first week of the month, the dashboard will not show any estimated payments until the first dashboard update, which is every Wednesday.
