There seems to be an issue with Stripe. I managed to connect to Stripe and I know others did too. However, the November earnings from Medium which were scheduled to be transferred to our bank accounts via Stripe around the 8th or 9th of December didn’t happen. The bottleneck seems to be at Stripe. A few users mentioned they got an error on their Stripe dashboard. I didn’t.
I did find this in Stripe’s FAQ (see attached). So I hope it’s just a teething issue. My guess is Stripe may be holding off connecting new users from India (maybe all preview countries) till they sort out the glitch, if that’s what it is. Anyway, it’s ‘wait and see’ for now.
