    They set up these sites to make money for the sites!

    The last thing they want to do is pay for quality...

    They create a facade that like the OP says - Are you kidding me!

    This is what many clients are doing now. Free content!

    Go and order many articles accept a few and reject others. Take the rejected ones - spin and you have your new version

    That site really is one of them ones where I cant understand why people write articles on there, its obvious people use it to get free content... You'd have to be an idiot or have some good luck on your side if you think your going to be that 1%.

    Home Page:
    It's the site, from where you'll get contents @ free of cost.
    And the writers who write there - i must say they are hopeless that's why they are in iwriter.
    You'll earn more if you sell your articles in fiverr.

    To everyone above; that's not so true. If you can take the time to work through the "shit" tier, it's actually really nice. You'll find people that pay MORE actually have the highest approval rates and tend to be really understanding. For example:

    Working for Premium/Elite: ~60 Articles written| 0 Revisions | 0 Rejections
    Working for Standard: ~40 Articles written | 6 Revisions | 6 Rejections

    People that pay less expect more. It's crazy, but sadly on iWriter it's true.

    There are a few people that definitely abuse the "only pay if you like it" system on iWriter, but there are a few people who indeed pay for quality articles. All the writers have the ability to see the approval history for each project owner, and can simply ignore that project, but some writers are indeed desperate so they'll still write despite clearly seeing the approval rate for the project owner is abysmal.

    I remember seeing that requester on iWriter and was amazed anyone would submit an article to them. I am sure they were rejecting articles and then using them anyway.

    I agree with Lemonhead too, the Elite level is far more professional. It's worth the effort once you are there.

    I am currently writing on iWriter. I am somehow happy with the site and the income, but some things just don't have sense, especially when I write some article for 1 hour just to get it rejected and lower my star rating (which is very important because it depends about my earnings).

    Yes, at the Standard level the requesters are not as professional in their conduct. More of them reject an article rather than ask for revisions and a 1 start rating really affects your overall score.

    It is frustrating but stick with it until you get to the next level as things are a lot better from there on in.

    No, I am Premium Writer with 4.51 current star rating. I have written about 100 articles, and 5 of them were rejected with 1-2 to star rating. At one point I had 4.58 rating which is so close to Elite Status which needs 4.6 rating. After that I got 2 rejects with 1 star rating, after some vague and unapparent reasons of rejections. One guy said my article, I quote : ''Didn't make SINCE'' - and that is kind of requester that gets me 1 star rating. I couldn't freaking believe. If only I had not have these few rejections, I would have Elite Status. However, I am clear of the fact that I am not deserving Elite Status (mainly because english is not my native language), but I think I deserve at least Elite status payment which isn't so big.
    From stand point of a writer I just can't realize how some of the requesters there expect perfect high quality article for just few dollars. But, there are some reasonable and great requester which have enough decency to make you rewrite the article.

    Just a tip I've learned to follow on iWriter:

    If you truly feel your article was unfairly rated, and it was EXACTLY what the person asked for, you can contact their support and they'll fix the issue. I've had three articles changed to 5 stars from 1 after being unfairly rated. The support team will check the article and if it's up to standards then they will remove the rating or change it to 5 stars. I know how devastating a 1 star rating can be on iWriter, so this is definitely something you should do if you've been unfairly rated.

    Yeah, that's too much trouble for nothing.
    Just now, I wrote article for more than an hour and got rejected + 1 star rating. I mean don't some people have common courtesy to at least give better rating if they are rejecting, don't they realize someone puts a lot of effort in something. I am seriously thinking of quitting this site for good. I just can't stand this for that kind of low payment.

    Yeah, it's incredibly annoying. Honestly if you were rated unfairly trying to appeal is a good idea. It's not too much trouble when you think about it, because if it wasn't for "that one bad rating" you could be an elite writer. Once you get to elite people are much more professional. They also tend to hire you again and again if they like your work which is always a plus.

    Just a recommendation though - there's a lot of frustration involved with the lower levels. Once you get to elite it's smooth sailing.

    I write primarily for DMS and have had similar experiences as yours. I was running on a nearly perfect score for grammar and research, only to be slammed by one editor who actually ended up doing little to change the original article. It's likely nothing to do with you but instead, is an errant editor who doesn't understand what constitutes excellent content.

    Sorry, but you'd have to be an idiot to write for someone for half a penny a word, and that has rejected 98% of what was offered to them. This is why iwriter has those stats up to begin with. So you can separate the wheat from the chaff and not waste your time.

    My bad, it turned out to be $48,1 , I just found a great requester, wrote about 1400 words for him about topic I know about with few re-writes, we made a deal that every 300-500 word will be tipped $10 more, and it really payed me fast... Imagine if everyone there was like this, it would be so cool... And for your question, it was completely new customer who was first time on iWriter, I mean people are normally paying this sort of money on few american websites, but since I am from Europe I can't access them...
