    Friend, AC is dead. It died months ago and the methods you would need to use as a foreign citizen are near illegal now. Look for something else.

    Do some reading in the forum and catch up with all the changes and educate yourself.

    First of all, to get their upfront payments, you need to set up a fake account in the U.S. and run it from proxies. Thats already borderline fraud right there and AC has banned a bunch of people who tried it and threatened legal action.

    Secondly, even if you do try this, they are rejecting 50-75% of the article submissions so you are going to waste a lot of time finding articles they want.

    Even if you do find articles they want, they pay about $2-3 for them. So counting the rejections, you are going to have to write dozens of articles every day just to make a few bucks.

    Still want to try it?

    At the end of the day, people do like getting paid upfront, which is why AC maintains its interest, despite low payments and high rejections. You could just start a process where you write with AC in mind, but also with multiple profit uses in mind. Just don't think of AC as your main or long term source of moolah.

    If you can successfully JV with a US person or set up a US account with airtight proxy, write 18-20 articles on the same niche and submit them to AC first, knowing that these days only 5-6 may get approved for upfront pay. Then sell the rest as PLR, use for a minisite or blog, or submit to other paid directories.

    You could do the same JV/BH US account set up with textbroker, for example, select to write the easier (1 or 2) level articles that pay only $2-2.50 to bang out anyway, but submit them to AC first. If AC takes them, you make money upfront fast, or money on the other site for the ones AC rejects. Or you could dispense with paid directories altogether and just freelance, working with people directly on freelance sites or the FL sections of IM sites.

    Because you haven't selected the upfront payments option. You are probably submitting under display rights only which are auto published for views only, not upfronts. AC pays $1.50/1000 views.

    how can you say AC pays so well with the amount of work and time you do you can just do freelance article writing and rewriting for people and earn more through that.
