    Ive submitted a couple of articles to them and have waited patiently. Today is the 7th day and still my articles have not been reviewed or rejected.
    Should I be writing more articles on a daily basis?
    Or are they slow because of the holiday season?
    Anyway, if helloall or AffGuy08 see this thread, let me know if the articles I wrote for you got approved or not.:)

    it sometimes can take 2 or 3 weeks for my articles to get reviewed for upfront payment, just be patient.

    i have submitted articles to ac lots of times and it does take a while just try to be patient i know it can seem like a long time when you really need to know if a method works though.

    Hi hammad,

    The 2 test articles are accepted by AC and paid $2.84 each. Is that good?

    I almost abandoned AC... They are crazy people... Its a trap!!

    They will only accept articles having perfect american english based, good grammar, having good search tags, with good title and some more requirements. And they will only pay between 1-3$ per article.. Nice way to steal content from poor people.

    Also they have bullshit editors, those are like kids.. What they will do is, if you submit an article to society category, they will change it to business category and then reject the article saying you submitted to wrong category.. Also if your article have 425-450 words something (AC need articles above 400 words) they will simply edit it to some 380 words, then rejects it saying the article is below the specified limit!!

    Imagine an article in your website and you get $2-$5 in 6 months... This is better than AC.. Also the article in your site will attract more traffic in the long run and you will get more money... Or use the articles for affiliate marketing, article marketing etc. and you can make lot of money....

    If you submit 5-15 articles per day, and you are not an american (AC will find it) AC will take down all of your submitted articles (not approved) and then ask you to submit that W-9 Form to continue with it...

    Also AC only like submitting 2-5 articles in a week if it is not a W-9 verified account. If you submit more than this, AC will ask that W-9 Form...

    To know how AC can find your location, just check the source of the page and you can see the city, country and other things..

    So, AC shit is not worth our time...

    This is pretty much the general payment for articles on AC. The lowest I've had was $1.00 and the highest i've had was $3.50.

    The shortest time I've had to wait for a payment was 4 business days and the longest I've had to wait was 10 business days.

    Just my experience.

    Yea that's great! Thanks for letting me know. That is a pretty good average. I guess the real profits are made from expanding and outsourcing.

    Since AC has become such a "hot" topic on this forum my earnings have significantly gone down on a per article basis. I'm a decent writer who would often get $4.00/article in the past. I'm lucky to get $3.00 today. It looks like a simple case of supply and demand to me.

    I just whipped up an article for AC to test the waters. It took me about 15 minutes to write, was about 550 words, was on a REALLY obscure niche and took a week to get approved.

    I got paid over $4. The money hit my paypal today.

    Granted that's only 1 article, and I wrote it myself. My grammar and vocabulary are above average. But I still see potential here and will explore it further. I don't expect it to ever be a full time earner, but I can easily see outsourcing both the writing and the editing and clearing $20/day for doing not much more than putting together a few writers and few editors and creating the accounts.

    $20/day isn't much in the grand scheme of things, but if I can reduce my personal workload to an hour a week, that's $150 an hour. It's also a car payment or half a mortgage payment on a rental property for example.

    I'll take it if I can get it.
