    Feel free to discuss and use. It's made me lots of extra cash and sharing it wont stop me from making more so i might as well :)

    Don't forget to say thanks!

    Wow, I wish I thought of that. I'm going to try this one out.

    [edit] Do you pay your friends depending on their grade?

    i do this with my friends, except i just tell them once i have a buyer for there work they get paid, so i just publish it & give them everything, but keep a dollar myself for the work.

    10 people doing 5 a week is an easy $50! get even more and you're made!

    Thank you for this. I have been submitting my room-mate's school stuff to AC already. Would probably be good to expand on this. Get his friends' stuff too, and maybe post a few flyers at the school about buying their essays. Wonder how long til Admin removes stuff like that :p

    Another option you can try is going into your schools computer lab and checking every single harddrive for essays/papers that students wrote, and didn't have anything to save to, so they used the computer's harddrive to save before printing... I know at my school I would see hundreds. Too bad I just learned about this, as I have been out of college for one year now... :(

    You wouldn't even need to pay any one $1 a paper... All profits! or I guess you could give someone money to go collect them for you...

    I would say that MOST stuff is typed nowadays. Heck, my professor actually requires that we type out our work. And most college essays, etc HAS to be typed out.

    I think this could be VERY lucrative, especially if someone were to make a site that would pay $0.50-$1.00 for every HW assignment. I have tons of them on my computer! Then they could post them to AC and be making a killing.

    sounds like a great idea! :) Thanks for sharing.

    one question though ... what do you do about plagarism and unquoted quotes?
    especially at uni material such things could bring you into trouble?

    thanks though for this great idea

    My college is pretty tight on plagerism but it's a valid point.

    Running a copy through Copyscape might help and i dont know AC's stance on copywrited material!

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    I was thinking about doing this with my college papers but held back because I thought it would cause some kind of problem.

    Just make them sign a paper or something to make it official. Just like " I hereby grant bla-bla-bla resell rights" Or something like that.

    I've done this with a few of my old papers. Really, someone with only $20 in their pocket could use this and probably turn it into $60. Buy 20 papers for $20 and get a minimum $3 a pop. While there is some turn around time, in about a month, you would have a decent chunk of change to mess with.

    What payment option do you guys choose? They have the automatic payment only and the upfront + automatic. I submitted 2 papers and chose the upfront + auto but it says that I am accepting $4. I see people on here getting more so is there a different option?

    Shiiiit....I was slapping myself across the face because in high school I used to write 5 page essays for people in this 'advanced placement' class I never was smart enough to get into, lol...

    But I was smart enough research-wise so whipped this shit up like a blender...

    I'd sell these essays for $45 a pop and each semester I'd make a good $400-500 at least...

    Me and a friend also created fake report cards using photoshop and sell that shit $50 a pop which supported our skateboard hobby, and oh, not to mention the weed, drinking, party habits as well...

    We always had return customers for the report cards though...very hush hush :p ...
