Hey Dave.

You can find out more about Web Monetization once you dig some of posts here in Web Monetization community (usually look for #getstarted and #webmonetization tag) and its official site webmonetization.org.

Your posts will be monetized to Interledger-enabled wallets of your choice once you set it on Settings -> Extensions -> Web Monetization. You'll see there's this "Payment pointer" that will link to wallet of your choice - as it is now, there only a few companies that support Web Monetization which you can read here for more details.

When someone views my posts do i get paid?

Once you link your payment pointer to your account, your posts will have the capability to recieve payment stream in real time from Web Monetization subscribers, which is usually translate your earning to how long subscribers viewing to your posts as the payment will stream continously.

or payment is going only to the platform?

No, payment will be directed directly to your wallet. But if you don't have wallets that able to receive Web Monetization payments right now, you can get payment pointer that set up by non-profits just to test it out (although with linking non-profits payment pointers you can't chech how much the earning get through by yourself).
