    You probably didn't go for upfront payment? just my guess.

    Plus your link doesn't go to your article,

    and next time, code your links to hopefully keep it a little more in house.

    Code:
    www.associatedcontent.com/article/link/link.html

    you must signup as someone coming from the US

    so that you will be eligible for upfront payment

    AC can detect your geographic location but this isn't an issue if you tell them that you are a US citizen and above 18 even though you are not. This is BH. AC is also well aware of this practice but it doesn't t seem to bother.

    Create a new account ..and now you know what to do. ;-)

    cheers,

    As the guys said, you haven't signed in as a US citizen so you did not receive upfront payment

    Always go for the upfront payment. You will get an upfornt payment and still have the benifits of the automatic payment later on. If you get a good article in there, they will pay you over $4 dollars and you could be making a 1.50 on that one article every few days. Just think, you could have an army of AC :).

    Please everyone remember to have good quaility articles that are hard to prove copywrite and do not cheat the system too much! It will make it good for all.

    I know there are a lot of foreign BH'ers, so here's my advice;
    Translate articles written in your own language, if your english is good enough. I can easily write articles translated from my native language to english and it still sounds like an unique piece. Let's take for example my University Dissertation (final year essay on an unique topic, with unique question, with unique content - 10k-14k word limit) ....Didn't get done for it even though I copied 80% of it's content from other sources...Altho I only got an average grade for it, but it's just an example on the quality you can do while making it unique.

    Thanks :)

    what articles you submitted? are you sure you try it on copyscape if it is unique?

    2 Ways to know if you pass copyscape:
    1. Copy one of your paragraph in your article, go to google and paste your copied paragraph in the search box and then submit. You will know if your article is already been published if you see a dupe paragraph in other site..

    2. create a blog on blogspot and that doesn't indexed in any SE. And then go to copy*scape dot com and put your link on the search box.

    As others have said it sounds like you need to reside as a US citizen.

    You need to go ahead and create another account and tell them your a US Citizen. Just go ahead and do this now since your going to be doing it several times a month if you really start working AC for money.

    You'll be fine until you hit their payment limit, at which case your going to need to provide information on citizenship (which you can't do) or create a new account. So get in the habit of this now, it's easy and takes 5 minutes. You just need to rotate paypal emails when you make the new account.

    As far as getting higher payouts, there are a lot of tips on this forum.

    Some simple ones off the top of my head:

    Spell check your articles.
    Use proper grammar and sentence structure.
    Cite sources whenever possible. If you don't have sources, make them up.
    Use catchy titles that will entice people to click.
    Write about uncommon subjects, do some keyword research to find niches.
    Optimize the article for search engines, make sure you put related tags in the tag section. It will help you earn money over time with the article as well.

    If you get a lowball offer, decline it. Change the title, move around the paragraphs, double check the above and resubmit it. Often with a low ball offer, I find making even what appear to be insignificant changes can double the price on resubmit.
