More About Medium's Paywall
Medium’s business model is designed to serve writers and readers — that’s it. It’s why, back in 2017, we moved away from the race-to-the-bottom incentives of advertising, not to mention its distracting banners, junky pop-ups, auto-play video, and data trackers that follow you around the internet. You won’t see any of that on Medium, and that’s because we don’t accept advertising. That said, we must have a way to fund this healthier experience. So, instead, Medium has a metered paywall and a subscription service, which costs only $5 per month or $50 per year.
For those not up on the industry lingo, here’s how a metered paywall works: Everyone can read several paywalled stories for free every month; people who subscribe can read them all. (You can read an explanation from our founder and CEO Ev Williams on why we launched the paywall, and you can get more detail about the model from Ev and from a recent Digiday article about our subscription business, and how it’s working.)
If a writer chooses to put their story behind the paywall they make it eligible to be reviewed by a curator and recommended to Medium readers.
