So here’s what weird, Luke. Medium paid me less for more engagement. I keep seeing people sharing what they made. My article had an 85% read ratio and close to 500 claps and I got paid $18. Yours got $137 for a 100 more claps and less read ratio (not knocking that, just wondering what gives). Everyone I know seems to make more. Do they take follower count into consideration? Because I have 4K more followers do I make less? If Benjamin Hardy does a locked post will he make $5? I’d love to know how they determine this ‘cause right now everyone’s payment is ALL over the board.
