Common questions


Purchasing a gift subscription

Can I gift a subscription for one month?

At this time, gifting is only supported for annual subscription plans.

Can I receive an invoice for my purchase?

Yes. Please submit a ticket with us to request an invoice for your gift purchase.

Do gift codes expire?

Gift codes do not expire and can be activated at any time.

Redeeming your subscription code

Why am I unable to redeem my subscription code?

The gift code can only be claimed by a Medium user without an active membership subscription. If you are already a Medium member, cancel your subscription to be able to redeem your gift code once your current subscription ends.

Do I need to connect a credit card to be able to redeem the code?
No. Redeeming a subscription code activates a non-recurring subscription plan for one year, and after that time it will cancel automatically unless you decide to renew it.
