Hi @zaheerbaloch I'm not sure what the actual split is, but Medium talks about their high-level business model regarding its subscription service. Google search recent blog posts from Ev Williams, the CEO and founder.

Hi @nicknick, I googled and found very high level information that payouts are based on claps, views and engagement/reading time etc. But they never mention anywhere how much they give out or what exactly is the formula!

Interesting model. Here is the link to the FAQ page help.medium.com/hc/en-us/arti…. Model is bit like Skillshare, which looks like a successful model.
