    I just now joined and found that payment is shitty especially if you're new on the website.. There are virtually no projects on the website. So, I would rather avoid the website.

    I registered on the site a few months back. There are hardly any articles to write anytime I log in.
    Pay is not that great for new users. You are supposed to work your way up the rating system.
    The higher you rate, the more you will be paid.

    Unlike other websites, we do not make it easy for writers with little to no experience with article writing. We have large corporations that are using the site and they do not want their listings to be shown to just anyone.

    We have over 20,000 articles being written at any given month, but most are sent directly to the higher level writers. When you are new to the site, you have to prove your writing skills and of course get clients.

    All writers make a minumum of 81% of the total cost of the article.

    All payments are done on the 25th or 05th of each month, via paypal.

    Since we aren't getting paid for the THREE sample writings, do writers retain ownership of their work?

    Monthly pay won't go down well with a majority of writers. But, since you're an organization you're not going to change the rules. I am saying this because a majority of writers on this forum are accustomed to writing after getting paid in advance.

    The three sample writings are for the rating and the selection process. As a requester of articles you need to be at a minmum level before we will approve your application.

    We do not charge a fee to come on board, which some companies charge a fee of $99 to get verified, we do not. We ask for three sample articles and that is all.

    Any article that is submitted you no longer own. It is part of the terms and conditions on the site.

    Seems like you have not read the website. We have FORTNIGHTLY PAYMENTS -- 25th and 05th of the month. ( this means we pay out more than once a month )

    Seems to be perfectly fine for the thousands of writers that we have. Any professional writers get this and understand it.

    The payment is the EXACT SAME AS IWRITER AND OTHER WEBSITES.. So it is the standard for the internet.

    We have over 20,000 articles being written, but if you are not a favourite writer of a requester then you might not get as many.

    Exactly... just like Iwriter.. I think writers are getting tired of the sites where they put in the research, work and overall ethics to provide a fantastic article only to have the client " reject" it but really they put it through a spinner, fufilled their end of the contract with the company by saying you weren't able to " meet their needs" and they get away with a couple of free articles.


    Writers want to get paid and not wait a month for it unless it's worth it.


    Textbroker - ( weekly)

    Demand studios - ( Twice a week)

    Writers Network - ( Bi weekly or weekly)

    Triple Curve Media - pays $12 an article ( weekly payment)

    Need an Article - ( weekly)

    Out of the 800 companies I'm making a list of only 200 pay monthly, article teller and Iwriter are the two I DON'T recommend because the pay scale / process.

    If you need three samples why not have the writer submit links that were previously published or have enough faith in your writer's ethics ( since you make them give you samples) to Guarantee them payment. If the client doesn't like the content then take the road of the other content providers and have an editor fix it.


    I'm always leery of companies that have a " 80 % rejected rate" system where some of the clients who don't know what they want to give cloudy instructions get to dictate the direction of the content.

    If you pay monthly then you should be paying $10 + revenue share like Gather.com



    P.S. The standard of the internet should not define the standard of an ethical writing company. If you are the only two companies with that system, offering the lowest pay, the most obscure pay date then what makes you think your ethics will remain in business?

    You'll never become a Demand Studios because last time I checked : The ethics of a real content / media company hired writers based on their portfolio or resume/ paid them more than $10 per article/ offered them flexible payment options and demanded the editors work with the writers to meet an extensive set of guidelines set forth by the client ( at which, the client was required to be very clear about what they wanted because all work would be created based on that premise, if they didn't like the content they would have only themselves to blame for not being clear but there were experienced marketing professionals in place to discuss what they needed)

    Your response is laughable. So instead of charging $99 you asking for free samples. You do know that there are companies online that ask for samples and allow the writers to retain the rights to their work? NO WRITER SHOULD NOT WORK FOR FREE. Either pay for the samples or allow the writers to keep their work.

    Nevermind. Three sample articles is ludicrous. You're disrespecting good writers with that; wasting our time and getting free work out of us.

    Also, Why mention some scam company that charges $90? That's an obvious scam, so why would you even want to associate yourself with that? No legit content mill is going to charge writers for access. They're already in a bad position because they need writers who will write for next to nothing.

    Your venture will fail, obviously.

    I think they took it seriously and now they pay for first three articles as well. I have just reached the minimum payout limit and waiting for the payment to be released.

    Article Teller is a SCAM! Be Ware

    Do not write for this company. I thought they may pay after I reach the $25 limit. I have $47 in my account and its 11Pm, 26th October, and I haven't yet received my payment. I did save my PayPal information in the payment form at articleteller and chose 25th of every month as my payment date. But they did not transfer any money and it still says I have 47 dollars in my articleteller account.

    So, I would say, Articleteller is a scam and one should seriously avoid writing for this sh*t website.

    If you're going to write for a content mill, stick with Textbroker. It has its flaws, but it has a proven track record of paying.

    Here's the thing, though, guys: Google is demanding better quality across the board. These content mills were built on the assumption that there will always be writers willing to be paid peanuts to write SEO content, and there will always be Internet markets to buy their work. This is changing.

    Content mills are losing a lot of business already. If you're going to stay in the writing game you're going to have to sharpen your skills so you can compete with the top writers.

    [QUOTE=skhan86;6201848]Article Teller is a SCAM! Be Ware

    Articleteller stopped paying writers in August 2013. Before then it was Ok. Maybe they forgot about this website because they don't even realize that their auto responder doesn't work. The internet is changing and common content does not have its space anymore. Maybe they realized this and thought that they should do away with it anyway. All content mills have no feature anyway. Maybe its time for social media marketing and online digital agencies that are currently selling SEO techniques.

    Your first post and you are calling somebody a scammer?
    Suggest you read the rules then start a shitlist if your accusation is true.

    First of all, that was not my first post,.. secondly, I would still say they are scammers, or at least they are now.... If they have stopped their operations, why dont they take their site offline? they just keep it that way because the requesters still order articles from them and writers write for them.. all earnings go to their personal paypal account and they never pay their writer afterwards... means the writer gets 0 percent and articleteller gets 100 percent of the revenue....

    If you dont beleive me, you can take my ID which has 55 dollars in it and try withdrawing the amount on coming 5th. . .

    Instead of writing a test article for them, I chose a direct article. It was approved within 20 hours and I was elevated to `Platinum' level. The next article was `rejected' by a different client stating that I did not follow his instructions. I raised a complaint nearly five days ago and no response as yet. Thanks to your guys for opening my eyes. I'll avoid that site like the plague.

    The problem with me and many others is that many reputable sites do not permit non-English natives. This is despite the fact that I write general topics for an American client and get $40 for 450 words.
