Medium has a remarkable collection of writers, diverse voices, and publishers across domains, interests, and lifestyles. Top authors, leading experts, and emerging storytellers write on Medium daily. Medium partner program (MPP) is the enrollment program through which writers are paid for their articles depending upon the reception on their posts with the total number of views👁, claps👏 and responses✍️, etc.
Medium is only supporting payments through Stripe — a payment company. Since, the countries where Stripe is not operating currently, native writers from those countries can’t enroll in the program and hence can’t earn💲.
Partner Program Eligible Countries
However, authors might have writing as interest and not looking at medium as a source of earning. But the hardship is that writers are getting paid in several other countries. You can find below the list of countries which are included in the MPP-
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States
Don’t stop reading!!!
So the hack for the countries not included in the MPP is to use an international wallet which provides you an international receiving account, Payoneer worked for me (In India).
Try other alternative wallets if you find any! and please post them in the comments, It’ll definitely help the plethora of writers who are struggling to earn a decent living.
Stepwise Instructions to Earn From Medium
- Payoneer account(Free)
- Stripe account (Free)
- A New Medium Account (Yes, you will have to create a new account & start from scratch)
Try with your current medium account if possible; Most of the writers from Non-eligible countries were not allowed to link stripe (prior to 2019) if your account is old there are chances you might not be able to link stripe with payoneer, so it is better if you create a new account!
