You are talking about making some earning from writing.
Big joke!--Only writers from a few countries can earn money from their articles. What about those writers who are excluded from this grand scheme of things to earn money?
They are contributing five dollars towards monthly subscription and yet they are not eligible to earn money even if they are among the best writers.
Why this partiality?
We pay through a credit card and the earnings can be routed back through the same channel.
