    There is one thing that I don't get...

    If you can send your articles to AC, why are people selling them for 1 or 2 bucks?

    We have live examples of this right here on BHW.

    I'm not criticizing or anything... Just can't see why...

    Thanks

    That is a very good question. I think some of them do not want to take the time to upload to AC. Some spin articles and just want to get them out. It does take awhile per article. It seems like people from the USA are making money. These are all guesses but you bring up a very good point that you can make more money with AC.

    You are actually in the Associated Content of the forum so I think I just answered your first question. Secondly, why selling articles for like 2$ when you can get 3$ or more from AC.

    For me that makes sense...

    Think of it like this x:

    $1 dollar payment on completion of the article

    or

    wait for 10 - 16 days for yay or nay from AC for $3 dollars?

    I think thats what it balls down to for alot of people.

    Still, you can wait 16 and get rejected by AC and then sell the article for less.
    That made me think, why not creating a complete stream of articles to AC like 5 or 10 each day... After those 10-16 days, the stream will be "closed" and each day you'll send articles and receive money. Then for all the articles rejected, you could sell them.

    This may be better if you write a couple of article in the same theme because if your articles are rejected, you don't want to sell a couple of articles all with a different theme...

    Could be because they will get paid straight away from a user rather than AC. With AC you first have to wait for them to approve the article and then wait to get paid. But that is assuming they approve your article on the first go. Nevermind that if they want you to make edits, you have to wait all over again for approval.....people just don't like the hassle for just a little more money.

    Or could be they are not in a country accepted by the US.


    By doing the submitting and waiting for them to be rejected, you are still making the writer wait to get paid rather than like with selling them, they get paid on completion.

    Once you start getting paid through AC, you will notice a trend on what pays the most. Write about more of those themes and when they do get rejected, you can sell them somewhere else.

    I exactly do what u r asking as to why i do:
    Reasons:
    on the spot paypal cash,i needed some cash and my cpa income comes on 15 so this was the best way.
    why not AC? they have gone nuts.they reject completely brilliant articles giving stupid reasons like give source etc.i mean it is ok if they ask for sources in articles where there are many facts and all but they ask for sources even on simple articles.
    also they simply reject good articles for upfront payments without giving any reasons.

    Because as I can see AC is getting worst in rejecting and taking too much of time approving articles. Many of them selling directly need fast money and will take lesser for it.

    The price they're paying per article has dropped but you can still make a decent buck with AC ie: submit more articles spread out over different accounts.

    Saturated? AC will always need a steady stream of articles. Just like marketers are forced to do with CL or CS or any other method, those of us making money with AC will always have to adjust our methods.

    It's just a game...:D
