    Just a quick question, I've been adding some articles to my AC acc several days ago, but I don't see any money or even peform money or something like that I just see for example this:

    09/25/2008
    SUBMITTED
    Breaking the Chains
    No payment/ Exclusive
    0
    0
    $0.00
    No payment/ Exclusive


    When you submit an article do you have to do something more?

    And wich options do you guys choose?

    Automatic Performance Payments ONLY or Upfront Payment Review PLUS Automatic Performance Payments

    And do you guys any optional features in the content?

    Thanks in advance!

    Upfront Payment Review PLUS Automatic Performance Payments.

    No optional features in the content.

    Title, description, the content itself, tags, categories.

    Averaging $3-$4 a piece.

    THe site can take between 1 and 2 weeks to approve and offer payment though, thats why you dont see anything yet, if you go the the "my content"page of ur accoutn u will see the status is still submitting, you wilreceive an email when they make an offer on an article (my first article got offere £4.14 which i was pleased with)

    Actually on that note, has anyone ever "haggled" over the offer for an article form AC?

    The only article site out of that list that buys article... is AC. Ezine is a free article directory - I know that because I have submitted many articles to Ezine to drive traffic to my affiliate landing page. Not too sure about Triond, but I have seen a lot of complains about Helium in different Freelance writing forums.

    Constant Content doesn't pay up front for articles either, they give you the chance to sell your articles through their site and collect a percentage of your profit.

    Owch, I was about to make a post asking if AC is still paying, because my first few articles got paid and approved quick... Now they're slow or something.

    Are those other sites better for making money with articles? Can't hurt to submit them to places.. I just usually put Exclusive to AC... Guess I will stop that. Lol Thanks for the info, guys

    I tried ac about a month ago for the first time and they took about two weeks to approve and pay out for my articles.

    My guess is that they are getting slow because of certain people submitting like 50+ articles a day. I tried AC back before the popular thread on here was made and within 5 days I was reviewed and paid.

    I really believe that they are busy because of the promotion that they are doing for September. Please don't think that everyone who has read this post will go out and submit 50 articles per day. Most people won't not even take the time to get started. Most people are just going to ask question after question until they find a way that will eliminate them from the equation.

    I did submit a question to them when one of my articles were approaching two week mark and I received my payment within a few hours. This is not to say that you should continue to ask them to review your posts before the deadline, but it does mean that they do listen to our comments.

    If they don't have another promotion in October, we'll see how fast they begin to approve article submissions. Even if they do have another promotion in October, it should be safe to say that the beginning of the month should be the best time to submit your articles.
