    Hi,

    I am new in this game and I need your help.

    I've sent 3 articles to AC (10/28/2008) and they got published (11/02/2008) but there is no money at al, $0 for all 3 articles.

    What I have done wrong?

    Please help me on this.

    Thank you in advance.

    I hope I posted the thread in the correct section. You should create a special section for AC.

    Did you make sure to select the option for Upfront Payment when submitting your articles?

    I doubt AC is a scam, considering I've made over $2,000 with them :p

    I know it is not a scam. I just put that title to get your attention and get fast replies.

    darkhatter, I think I got it, I just saw this : PAYMENT: Automatic Performance Payments is the only option available for non-legal residents of the United States.

    I am from Romania. What can I do in this case ?

    Thanks guys for the fast replies.

    It's pretty easy to make a good amount with AC. The only frustrating part is finding decent writers that don't flake out after a few days/weeks. I've hired like 30 writers and only 5-10 submit stuff on a daily basis. Although once you have a few loyal writers, it's just plain easy money.

    Some crucial advice: Always, ALWAYS check everything in copyscape. I had a writer that turned out fantastic and unique articles consistently so I stopped checking her work in copyscape. BIG mistake. A few weeks down the line she suddenly got lazy and started turning in 100% plagiarized crap which resulted in 5 of my AC accounts getting murdered. :fuckyou:

    Sign up again and select US as your country, just don't go over $500 per account or else they'll make you submit tax info.

    BTW, everything's covered a trillion times over in the huge AC thread.

    you need to be a us tax paying entity - i.e. live there or own a US corporation.

    Uptownbulker can sort you out for $800. thats a weeks wage or less if you know what you're doing.

    Alternativly set yourself as from the US, but thats tax fraud. have fun with that.

    Or move to the US.

    I'd get a corp. That way you're covered from all angles and can use it for everything else.

    You could pay someone in the US to put everything through for you, but you'll be getting hardly anything after tax/costs etc.

    just a word of warning ...

    Dude... Read the already existing AC thread and stop opening stupid threads like this. If you have done that.. you wouldn't be here asking such a dumb question.

    to darkhatter:

    Ok, I got your idea. Never make more than 500 USD per account. But I only have a paypal account which it will be the same for all my accounts. What can I do in this case ?

    to jammie : Uptownbulker is what ? I did a search on Google but nothing informative comes out.

    Thank you guys.

    I love BHW !

    You can have up to 8 email addresses connected to 1 PayPal account.

    BTW, Uptownbulker is a member of this forum.

    Has anyone in this thread had success with AC while living in another country? By say using a fake name, fake mailing address and then a US paypal account?

    I live outside the US and have been using a single paypal to collect the money.

    From my understanding this will only work up until $600.00, correct?

    If your paypal is verified you can receive and send much more money than $600.

    Yes, every legal company/business in the US do, at least for Americans.
