What does it takes to sign up ?

Signing up to HireWriters is free you do not need to pay any sort of fee, unless you are signing up to outsource writers. In which case you will have to add funds to your account through Paypal and the minimum amount of funds that you can add to your account is $10 which is the same as iWriter.

HireWriters is very similar to iWriter. You can sign up as a writer and start writing articles. You do not need to bid on articles there a number of articles available for everyone to write at any given time.

How much do I earn ?

At HireWriters what you earn depends on your rank. There are a total of 4 ranks, which is one more than iWriter, but the amount of jobs that you need to complete to reach a higher rank is a lot less than iWriter. Below is the pricing table for clients, writers get 81% of what clients pay for an article.

Writer’s Skill Level: 150-300 Words 300-500 Words 500-700 Words 700-1000 Words 1000-2000+ Words
Beginner 1.50 2.75 4.00 5.50 7.50
General 2.50 4.25 6.50 8.75 11.50
Skilled 3.25 5.75 8.50 10.50 14.00
Expert 7.00 13.00 19.00 25.00 32.00


There are 4 ranks for writers Beginner, General, Skilled and Expert. All writers start off as a Beginner writer. In order to achieve the rank of a General writer, you must have a rating of greater than 4.0 stars and at least have completed 3 jobs. In order to achieve the rank of an Skilled writer, you must have a rating greater than 4.1 stars and at least have completed 7 jobs. In order to achieve the rank of an Expert writer, you must have a rating greater than 4.6 stars and at least have 12 jobs completed.

Minimum Cash Out Limit ?

The minimum cash out limit is $10. Writer’s get paid automatically on every Friday as long as they have $10 or more in their account. The only way to cash out is through Paypal.

Referral Program ?

Hirewriters does not have a referral program but they have a pretty nice affiliate program. With their affiliates program you earn $5 for each client you refer that makes a deposit and after that you earn 50% of the future profits.

You won’t earn for referring a writer. If a person you refer buys $100 worth of articles on HireWriter, in which case Hirewriters make a profit of $14-19 and they will share 50% of this profit with the affiliate not the actual amount of purchase.

They offer live stats for their affiliates have a cookie based system where the cookie lasts 6 months. Payments are made every Friday just like writers but the minimum payout is $50 for affiliates.

Accepted Countries ?

At the moment HireWriters only accepts writers from selected countries which  include United States of America, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, Singapore and New Zealand. At least they mention the list of accepted countries in their FAQ’s, unlike iWriter who just send you on a 404 page if you are not from one of the countries they accept.

  3. I’m not sure if the website is a scam or just exceedingly poorly managed, but my experience with HireWriters is strongly negative. I’ve done two small jobs for clients there, and the clients paid me promptly – but very shortly thereafter, my account was frozen. Reason? “Logging in from an banned IP address.” I was in the UK, moreover, the same city, the entire time.
    I wrote to the tech support multiple times, and the only response they gave me was “We are not prepared to extend you account facilities.”
    My loss on this transaction was two hours and five dollars, so I didn’t shed many tears, but if you’re considering signing up to HireWriters – don’t.

    I recently received an email from someone tending to the support inbox, informing me of recent job opportunities. Whenever I contacted them back I asked if I had been accepted, because I had never received a letter of acceptance. I was informed it was a mistake and I was declined. I responded inquiring if there was a way I could go about reapplying with the same email account. The response I got was a sweet simple “Unfortunately no.”.
    I’m not sure if all management retains this tone when talking to potential writers.
    Also I attempted to reapply anyway, and got a message error prior to entering information that informed me I did not live in a country they are currently hiring from (United States).
    I cannot confirm nor deny that this is a scam but it seems to be run very poorly.
