As a potential contributor, it is important to me to know what the actual compensation will be. When will this information be available?

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to predict what any author or story will make (if anything). Hopefully this gives a little more insight:

After one week of the new partner program, we did our first payout today. (We estimate payments once a week and process them once a month — so this is the payment for August, even though it’s only been a week.)

Of the partner authors who submitted content, 75% earned money. Payments ranged from $3 to $1,158, with an average of $137 (per author).

Side note: Calculations were entirely based on engagement from members. We sliced the data every which way from Sunday and determined that, while not perfect, claps reflected a pretty reasonable measure of what members want to see. So if you’re a member (and why wouldn’t you be?), 👏.
