What does it takes to sign up ?
Signing up to iWriter is free and you do not need to take or pass a test in order to begin writing articles on iWriter. You can just sign up to iWriter right now and start writing articles. There are a number of articles to write and choose from at any given moment.
If you are wondering if they don’t require a test then how do they separate good writers from the bad. They have a rating system where clients leave a rating for writers. If as a writer you have a rating below 3.2 after 10 reviews or a rating below 3.4 after 20 reviews your account will be blocked from writing any more articles.
How much do I earn ?
At iWriter what you earn per article depends on your rank and the overall number of words for the article. As a standard writer you earn $1.62 for a 300 word article, $2.43 for a 500 word article and $4.05 for 700 word article. Elite writers can earn up to $15 per article.
There are three ranks for writers at iWriter Standard, Premium and Elite. All writers start off as a standard writer. In order to achieve the rank of a premium writer, you must have a rating of greater than 4.1 stars and at least have 30 ratings in your account. In order to achieve the rank of an elite writer, you must have a rating of greater than 4.6 stars and at least have 30 ratings in your account.
If you don’t want to wait to get 30 ratings then you can apply for the iWriter fast track program. With the fast track program writers can reach the elite rank just by writing 3 articles. When you apply for the fast program you will have to pay a fee of $147 and write 3 articles on keywords they provide. The articles you write would be rated with in 1 day, if you manage to increase your rating then your rank will be increased to the relevant post.
Minimum Cash Out Limit ?
The minimum cash out limit is $20 and the only way to cash out is through Paypal. Payments are made a number of times per month. Weekly, Every 2 weeks, Every month on the 5th, Every month on the 25th. Weekly payments are sent every Tuesday. Bi-weekly payments are sent every other Wednesday.
Referral Program ?
Sorry iWriter does not have a referral program at the moment but they have an affiliates program where they share the profits with the affiliate 50-50. For those of you who do not know the difference between a referral program and an affiliate program let me make it clear. As an affiliate you will only earn for referring people who purchase a service at iWriter.
You won’t earn for referring a writer. If a person you refer buys $100 worth of articles on iWriter, in which case iWriter make a profit of $14-19 and they will share 50% of this profit with the affiliate not the actual amount of purchase.
Accepted Countries ?
iWriters have banned various countries from registering on their website. They don’t state the names of the countries anywhere on their website but a quick search of the internet shows that India, Pakistan, Kenya are a few of the many.
If you are from one of these unlucky countries you will get a 404 page not found error instead of a statement that people from your country are not allowed to sign up. Even if you manage to sign up using a proxy, which is an easy task, you will land on a 404 page when you click on the write article button.
I was not able to register to at iWriter because my current location is banned by iWriter from registering but I managed to find a recent payment proof from the internet to share.
As I mentioned earlier I was not able to sign up or write on iWriter but I managed to find a lot of reviews on the website. Most of the reviews had a problem in common, they were complaining that their articles were being rejected for no reason and later appearing on different blogs.
Just like any other freelancing website on the internet you will find scammers on iWriter. The thing to do in this case is that make sure that the writer you are writing for has a high acceptance rate and you have followed the instructions provided by the writer.
As a blog owner outsourcing writers or content is really easy on iWriter all you have to do it post the title and the instructions for the article and you will get your article written in less then a day. If you are not pleased with an article you can simply reject it. The minimum amount to add to your iWriter account is $10 through Paypal.
